    When me and my daughter turned up, they seated us in the corner, which was quite nice. Looking outside the park the afternoon tea was very nice. The waitresses were very nice and polite kept coming back to see if we needed another refill of coffee or food. The only thing I would say it was very hot in there with no air conditioning. The doors were open, but they were in the bar and we were in the restaurant and no windows opened. We asked for a take away as we couldn’t eat at all and the waitress took it away and gave us a box to take home just one thing on the afternoon afternoon tea the sandwich was Beef with horseradish, which I don’t eat the cheese and cucumber was nice but very thick so just really at the egg sandwiches to be honest x

    Great service and even better food on the afternoon tea offering. It’s always great to come here and it’s refreshing to be able to have more than one hot drink with your afternoon tea and replenishable sandwiches. We were well looked after for our whole visit and at no point felt we were ever rushed despite having drinks post afternoon tea.

    A great choice and good balance of sweet and savoury treats. Waiter was very polite and knowledgeable. A dietary preference was dealt with with no problem. The only thing to improve a truly wonderful afternoon would have been some low volume background music either live or recorded

    The service was very good and we were asked more than once if we wanted more cakes or sandwiches.

    The location and setting were very nice, The food was good, there were crusts on sandwiches which I wouldn't have expected. The food arrived before the tea and the table wasn't big enough for all the tea and the food so a smaller table was sourced. The service was quite slow and hesitant. I would visit again but would need to manage my expectations
