    I have been several times before for afternoon tea and been perfectly happy. Unfortunately this time I left disappointed. We had to try really hard to the get attention of staff for ours scones, again hard to get attention for more tea. Not once were asked if everything was ok and whether we would like more tea. Previous visits have always been asked. The most disappointing was the sweet components of the afternoon tea. Both of us felt the cream tasted synthetic and just didn’t taste particularly pleasant. Disappointed because it is a lovely venue and have enjoyed it in the past.

    My friends first visit and she wasn’t disappointed. Said she felt like royalty from the minute she walked in. Staff were attentive and looked after us throughout. Didn’t feel rushed to leave so was nice to relax and take our time with all the food (because there’s lots!). we had before noon tea which was the perfect mix of sweet and savoury treats. We took some home for later too as there was so much. The staff had the balance right between being attentive and leaving you to enjoy. All the staff were amazing and friendly and explained everything and checked on us. You really feel they care. We will be back!

    My table was in a smaller room instead of the larger main dining area which allowed more space between tables and quieter. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful and answered questions about possible food allergies. A nice experience and my second visit and would highly recommend
