Afternoon tea was delicious. A great mixture of savoury and sweet treats.

We visited on a sunday afternoon for afternoon tea. It took around 5 minutes to be seated. Once seated we was left on our own accord for a fair time before having our drinks order taken. Shortly after we had our afternoon tea blonked down. And that was it. No more interaction from any member of staff! No one explained what we was given, had to guess ourselves by looking at the menu online. There were some items on the menu in which we are guessing should be hot but where actually cold. Overall very disappointed. We have eaten at the lane many times. And normally very delicious. Wont be returning for a while.

Fantastic in accomodating my daughter's allergie needs as she is allergic to wheat and lactose. Normally she has to exclude items of the breakfast menu but instead she was given freeform alternatives and food was cooked separately. A lovely treat for my daughter making an enjoyable breakfast for my family xxx

What an amazing afternoon we all had for my daughters baby shower. We had upstairs all to ourselves for a few hours which was worth every penny Thank you to all the staff, especially Jas in helping to organise and to Chris and Anna for allowing us to use The Lane The buffet was excellent and such a thoughtful gesture a vegan platter was arranged for one of the guests Everything about the afternoon was just beautiful. A big thank you from everyone

The lane is one of my favourite places. The food is amazing and the presentation is even better. I’m happy to pay what ever they price the food at as they’re not shy with the portion sizes and again it taste amazing. The afternoon tea is just so tasty and presented beautifully. I will always continue to come here even if it is a 45 minute drive. excellent quality Excellent prices Excellent presentation Excellent staff and decor.

The afternoon tea was wonderful. A refreshing change to the usual afternoon teas I’ve had elsewhere before. I really enjoyed the mix of savoury treats, the soup was a great idea as a little starter and all the desserts were very tasty! Would highly recommend and I’m definitely coming again!

The staff were really friendly. We were there for breakfast. Our choices were all cooked and prepared well and they had options for our son who has dairy and egg allergies.

Came to the lane for a belated valentines celebration on Saturday 15th February. The service was very quick maybe as our table was at 8pm and they wanted to get the food served. I would have preferred to have a bit more of a wait for the food to soak up the atmosphere and relax a bit more in the setting but at least we didn’t wait for ages!! All staff were friendly and attentive. An extensive cocktail menu which we tried and loved. The food was delicious and can’t be faulted. Everything was fresh and well presented. We did want to order a dessert however we felt like we didn’t really want to. This was because we were seated on a table upstairs which was right next to where the DJ had set up. Suddenly at 9:15 when we were viewing the desserts the volume accelerated and I now had to shout to speak to my partner. For this reason we felt a bit too uncomfortable to order a dessert as we didn’t want to eat in that situation. This didn’t push us out though we still enjoyed the atmosphere. This is a learning experience that next time we would have an early reservation at the weekend. It would’ve been nice to sit downstairs which was more relaxed, there was a free time during our whole visit. However whilst these sound big they’re minor things and we would definitely come back and recommend.

This was a birthday present from my children and I enjoyed it greatly, will definitely be going again. The staff where efficient and friendly and the food was top line. Having the option to be able to take a doggy bag was a very nice touch. We had not eaten all day, but still couldn’t eat it all, fantastic

No sandwiches!... What a breath of fresh air. A good balance of sweet and savoury and the afternoon Tea menu changes so this makes for a new experience every time you go. Real value for money. I'll be going again! ♥️

This was my third afternoon tea at the Lane and as usual very enjoyable. There were also a vegan in our group who was equally well catered for. Would highly recommend.
