Everything was awesome tho I did notice abit of caked/dried food on the floor beside our table when we arrived. It appeared to have be trodden into the carpet. Other that that and one item on the high tea menu not to any of our tastes everything else was absolutely lovely. Thank you

Only issue we had was with the booking and getting confirmation back with our final numbers. This was sent twice.When we arrived, we were set up for the original numbers. Staff very quickly moved us which was great

Bar staff seemed too few. Drink service to table very slow .. only due to not enough staff. The staff member we had was good, but just had too many to cope with. Food selection and quality very good.

Overall we enjoyed out high tea however there where a few points mentioned. There were some pretty bad smells in the premises and we all felt it needed a good refurbish. The staff could have been more attentive, we had to get there attention a few times to get more tea and drinks, Rachel was great. Thanks

We were over all happy with the experience. My children loved the place due to variety of cuisines and spaciousness. We will dine at this restaurant again.

Hope there will be more selection of food to choose from. At the moment, it's very limited choices.

I have coeliac disease and after making an enquiry if Whitby's could provide me safe gluten free food, I was told yes. This eased my anxiousness immensely, therefore my dining experience was fantastic. This was for dinner which was amazing and breakfast. Thank you so much.

Disappointed my request for a table close to the buffet as we had a disabled person at the table was ignored, we were placed well away from the buffet. Although the food was excellent, getting the food to the table while using a cane was too difficult, wouldn't try that again.

Everything was very good overall but the cheffing staff seemed tired and wanting to pack up as we were still choosing food items and well before closing, affected the atmosphere a little, we also got a surprise at the end as was informed the Sunday buffet special did not apply to kids. Explained a number of times that this should have been mentioned somewhere and after some discussion the bill was reduced.
