The staff were friendly and welcoming. Service was very good and the food was tasty. I would only say that more than two pieces of toast could be served with the terrine. We asked for more and got them with no problem but more in the first place would be better. More

We had a lovely pre Christmas afternoon tea. The cakes were amazing the only slight downside was the sandwiches were a bit dry. We were made to feel really welcome by the gentleman who served us, he was extremely polite , helpful and easy to talk to and he made the experience more special for my 6year old daughter by making her feel grown up and including her in our conversations, he was amazing at his job. Lovely surroundings with a warm and cozy feel, perfect for this time of year. Will definitely return. More
