    Can not recommend this afternoon tea enough. Venue and general atmosphere is so relaxing and welcoming. Staff were so friendly and accommodating. We had someone in our party with an allergy, and they checked up on it several times. Nothing was too much trouble. Afternoon tea was delicious, food fresh and tasty and plenty of variety. Will definitely be back to visit soon.
