Loved the set up, the feel of the place. Really cool. The afternoon tea balance of hot/cold sweet/savoury was perfect. I posted on my instagram, and now so many people want to visit post lockdown.

The halloween themed afternoon tea me and my fiancé had was amazing, we was 20 minutes late due to myself not double checking the booking time and the lane called us and managed to get us in straight away, we are so thankful and it made my weekend. Thank you.

Absolutely brilliant! Very vigilant with the cover regulations, yet warm and welcoming too. The food was fabulous and so was the service. It was a special birthday treat for me and they didn't let me down!

We recently had the Halloween afternoon tea at The Lane and it was AMAZING! so many different items, savoury and sweet, to choose from. We couldn't finish it but got to take the leftovers home. The staff were lovely and kept our teapot topped up. Fingers crossed for a Christmas afternoon tea!

Staff were friendly and attentive when required. Food was very nice and imaginatively presented. We could have stayed longer but the Covid restrictions meant we only had a limited time.

Hi - we had a really lovely Halloween afternoon tea at The Lane on Wednesday. It was all delicious but particularly special was that my daughter is allergic to milk protein in dairy, and the chef came out specially when we arrived to go through the dairy free options he’d made for her including loads of delicious & beautiful (& funny!) Halloween themed vegan cakes and dairy free sweets!! She was so happy with it all, thank you so much!

Recently had the Halloween cream tea but felt it was over priced at £20 p/head. Also was not told of a child’s version of the cream tea that others seemed to be served. When we arrived I was told our booking was for half past 3 and not 3pm as originally booked. Someone at The Lane must have changed the booking without contacting me. Luckily they could fit us in at the correct time but it gave the impression that they seemed a little disorganised. The waiting staff were vague and just didn’t seem interested. Such a shame as I have had much better experiences here on previous visits.
