We had booked a table for one and they had already ran out of jacket potatoes. As it was lunch time we didn’t want breakfast and the only other option was a toastie. We therefore decided to just have some cake as it looked delicious. However it was very dry. When we said something we were immediately brought the bill and made to pay. It felt that we were being pushed to leave. Overall, poor service and food. Felt like they were trying to fit in as many people as they could. I couldn’t even put my coat on as the table behind was so close.

The young guy who served all 11 of us was lovely and done very well getting our orders correct. He was very helpful and friendly.

The food was lovely and we took lots of the cakes home with us for later.

Good food,fabulous service. It was a little cramped and getting to the toilet was a quite difficult due to squeezing through other diners.

Overall we enjoyed and will be back.

We decided to book here for our daughters 7th birthday and we took along 5 of her friends. I was worried they were a little young for enjoying afternoon tea but every one of them loved the experience. The decor was so elegant and pretty and the swing just made their day. We had a comment from one of the little girls “that it was the best party EVER”. The food was so scrumptious and the service was lovely especially as they went to the trouble of decorating our table with balloons and confetti! Highly recommend.

Booked for a friend's birthday lunch. Ordered 2 prosecco and the mushroom. As it was my friend's birthday the waitress gave us the fizz for free. What a great touch. Food was tasty and of course we had a couple more prosecco. Service was fab only issue was sitting by the door but didn't spoil our time there. Lots of people having the afternoon tea. Will be going again.

Lots of afternoon teas on offer in Bath but this one is certainly one I would recommend and very good value for money not a rip off which I think others are.

Staff were helpful and modified our orders slightly for our diets.
overall the food is nice, we had the afternoon tea and you get enough, 4 finger sandwhiches, a scone with jam and cream and 4 mini bakes each with a nice pot of tea.
what we couldn't finish we got in take away boxes.

Lovely place to eat, afternoon tea was fantastic and a great price for an informal get together. Fab decoration, tasty sandwiches and beautiful little cakes, will definitely be back to try their cupcakes! (A little bit on the loud side so possibly not so great for the older or hard of hearing.)

I ordered the mushroom pesto crispy onion brunch on sourdough with one poached egg but the whole dish was way too dry. I had to order beans on the side to help moisten and also another poached egg. I feel the dish needs to come with two poached eggs like all others on the brunch menu.

I don’t normally write bad reviews but me and my friends did not enjoy our breakfast here. The food was lovely but the ‘manager’ on Saturday was unhelpful and rude. She walked straight past me after stating my booking - which they claimed to not have yet I have all the confirmation on my phone. One friend was ill and couldn’t make it and she wanted to charge us £10 for a ‘no show’. I understand payments when you don’t cancel or all don’t turn up but 3/4 of us were there. We then waited 1 hour 40 minutes for our food. Lovely taste but not sure it was worth the wait or the attitude from staff. Our waiter was a young lad who served us lovely but the ‘manager’ that day had ruined it for us. I wouldn’t go back.
