Our afternoon tea was a gift and the whole experience proved to be very good in all respects. We will certainly recommend to others. Roger Henshaw

We had a wonderful meal with impeccable service and it was probably one of the best meals I have ever had and I am lucky enough to have eaten in many top restaurants worldwide. Only problem is we live in London so it's a long way to come but we will definitely be back! I cant wait to try the afternoon tea! Congratulations on your award.

Lunch -Saturday 16 June. An excellent menu choice, hope it retains the quality but changes the content regularly. Food quality excellent - Cod, just perfect; Halibut, sadly on the 'dry' side of very good. 'Bouche amuse' interesting. Overall, a repeatable experience. Well looked after by Abdallah and colleagues.

We came to celebrate our mum's 89th birthday. We were met in the car park and helped with mum's limited mobility. Right from the very start we were made to feel very special and valued customers. The afternoon tea was tasty, generous and beautifully presented and served. Birthday candles, chocolates on a happy birthday plate plus best wishes card all added to the occasion. We had an exceptional time in opulent surroundings, can't praise it too highly.

Apricot soufflé not to be missed as well as hand dived scallops and mushroom parfait that was heavenly The restaurant was quiet but we felt comfortable and welcomed. The wine flight worked a treat.

Superb! Couldn't have been made to feel more welcome and comfortable by the staff. Never received such a good quality service before in a restaurant. Me and my boyfriend both had £49 allowance towards food, we put ours together to order the steak and it exceeded all expectations. The head chef brought the meal out personally, the meat was perfectly cooked & served on salt, everything was well presented, charcoal mayo was a perfect accompaniment to the meat. Handcut chips were the best I've ever tasted. It was my boyfriend's birthday and the staff made him a dessert with chocolates which had happy birthday written on it, free of charge.They made my mine and my boyfriend's day incredibly special and couldn't thank the staff enough. Would highly recommend this restaurant, and would highly recommend buying the steak, a must have experience, worth the price.

The afternoon tea was simply stunning. Our waiter (Abbs I think his name is) could not have been better. He was polite, friendly and excellent. Arranging the small cake with a candle and a card for my dad was over and above expectations and really appreciated. We wish you all best of luck in London for the afternoon tea awards. You deserve to come first. Please thank Abbs and the lawns team for a lovely experience

Excellent Sunday lunch - service, under the 'modelling' by Abdallah Othmani, is reaching high levels already. A really splendid way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Food was inventive - difficult to do with a standard Sunday menu - and cooked superbly. Professor Boyle 15 May 2018

Our waiter was very helpful, atmosphere was great really relaxing. Our party had a mixture of savoury and sweet afternoon tea. The hot selection in the savoury tea was delicious. In the sweet tea the scones were fantastic as were the jams but the sandwiches didn't have a lot of flavour. The afternoon tea menu is very confusing! I thought it was just me but our whole group struggled to understand what was included in the savoury tea. Perhaps if you update your menu you could make it clearer that the Savoury tea also comes with sandwiches, we had to ask our poor waiter several times to explain it. Really like the new look of the bar area it looks great
