    The venue was lovely. Beautifully decorated and clean. The location was excellent, especially as our table had a view over the Thames from the top floor. The staff were friendly, polite and very accommodating. We had booked the afternoon tea and the service was quick but you didn’t feel rushed. Lovely atmosphere. Food was wonderful and my mum even said it was the best afternoon tea she has had. Would definitely recommend this venue and will be returning in the future.

    Poor service detracted from otherwise nice meal. We were initially rushed through our meal but then getting our check was a 20 min ordeal.

    The meal was ok but I don’t expect to pay £50 a head for two courses and find myself in Tesco Express a few hours later buying a sandwich because I’m hungry. A saucer of soup and a side plate of lamb isn’t acceptable
