    Very good service. We were disappointed when ordering a graduation dessert that only said congratulations. In prior years (2023) I have seen a dresser with a s graduation gap. We raised this but no solution was reached. Good food portions overall.

    The venue and staff were excellent as always but the quality of the afternoon tea was poor. The selection of food and cakes were either tasteless of had strange flavours. It’s always been a favourite place for afternoon tea but probably wouldn’t go again

    The Starters were great, the chicken milanese main course was not special in comparison. Service was very slow compared to the kitchen. It took ages to order and receive our drinks, but the food came very fast once ordered.

    Poor quality sandwiches. Tasteless cucumber. Inedible chicken roll. Felt slapped together. Very disappointing. They took ages to serve us. The whole experience was lacklustre. Needs a major overhaul. I would not recommend it as an experience.

    The food was absolutely delicious and the pricing is always fair. It's a fabulous location too. Been many times - it's my favourite place in Guildford.
