    We had a wonderful first experience at Byfords. We were shown to our table promptly and immediately noticed the relaxed, but buzzing, vibe. The menu was varied enough for us all to easily choose our meals, and the order was taken quickly. The food arrived in good time and was excellent. We will definitely be returning!

    The savoury items were lovely but all the cakes and sweet layer were poor. We left 90% of them, even when asked if we wanted a take out box for them and we said no, we were not asked if there was an issue. Service was a bit slow and staff were chatting rather than serving a lot of the time.

    I would recommend eating at Byfords as the food was very tasty and presented nicely. The staff were friendly and helpful too. I am coeliac therefore it was nice to have so much choice of gluten free food.

    I felt disappointed by the whole experience. The first thing to disappoint me was the lack of egg free options and the second thing was the staffs response to being asked for egg free options; surely in a world where allergies have become a part of daily life alternatives should be readily available and the staff should accept the request without making the customer feel in the wrong. It was an Easter themed afternoon tea, the portions were small, a top up of sandwiches was offered, the hot cross bun, roughly the size of a £2 coin was stale and the attention of the staff was non existent when it was time to settle the bill. Byford’s is now off my list of go to places for afternoon tea.

    The cafe was very pleasant and window seats especially so. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. Service was however a bit slow and we had a wait before our order was taken, but, as the restaurant was full we accepted this with no problem as we were enjoying a leisurely break. Once the order was taken there was no wait and refills of sandwiches and drinks were timely offered. The sandwiches were very tasty with a range of filling, but the mini brioche were slightly dry. Scones were light and tasty but would have appreciated them being served warm. The sweet course was great, and the cakes we were unable to eat we were given a box to take them home. Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable tea.
