    Scones were not fresh. Only one type of jam which wasn’t great. The cakes were not great and very small. The service was so poor. We waited nearly 30minutes for a second pot of tea which we had asked for. We also asked for more jam and waited over 10minutes.

    Afternoon tea was first class in terms of quality. Had a bit of trouble with the booking as open table let me book afternoon tea for 4 at 2.30 and when we arrived we were told afternoon tea doesn’t start till 3.00 pm which was not specified at point of booking so we had to wait at a table outside while we were rebooked for 3.00pm but after that all was lovely - a wee bit noisy as very busy so struggled sometimes to converse with everyone at the table. But the food was delicious and the vegetarian option was readily available tho I hadn’t specified this when we booked although I should have.

    Not as good as previous visits. Service was slow and toilet doors were tired looking. Not the usual experience unfortunately.

    We are sorry to hear about the slow service. Thank you for highlighting the doors in the ladies. We too have noticed the wear on the paint and have a decorator booked to refresh all paintwork. If you would like to discuss anything further, please contact gmedinburghtheivycollectioncom
