We celebrated my mums 80th birthday with a wonderful tea. Portions were so generous we had to take some home. Staff were fantastic and the venue felt very COVID safe. I would recommend this for a quiet rainy afternoon anytime.

The venue is lovely, beautifully decorated and peaceful. The food was pretty good but nothing outstanding. The thing that let this down was the service. The girl who took us to our table forgot our cutlery. The girl who brought our afternoon tea didn’t tell us what we had. We were not offered refills of our tea/coffee even though we were entitled to them. We had to ask for napkins too.

Overall not terrible service but for the money I’d have expected a little more.

Staff were all friendly, there was anti-bac available, tables were separated so we weren't close to anybody else. Food was delicious and nicely presented.
