Setting is lovely and service was fantastic. Food was delicious only thing I would say is change 1 of the 2 cheese sandwiches to either tuna or egg. Would definitely return!

We came here to celebrate our anniversary by booking standard afternoon tea. The sandwiches were amazing, scones were warm and the cakes were nice and soft. Loved both the lemon ginger tea and the mao tea. I have a suggestion. Can customers have a choice to customise the afternoon tea menu where they can choose to have more sandwiches and less cake? If I had a choice, I would have gone for some more sandwiches. But overall, it was a great afternoon. Special mention to all the staff as they were friendly and attentive.

Our visit yesterday was lovely. The food was delicious and very well presented. It wasn’t over busy so the service was efficient by friendly staff. I haven’t given full marks as we found the temperature within got rather warm and clammy due to lack of ventilation. Obviously the heat from the kitchen caused this and once this cooled down it was more comfortable. I’m sure this won’t put us off visiting again though.

The reservation was easy to find The menu looked a little cluttered on the clipboard hard to find what menus to read. We were there for lunch. The counter to order no menu on the wall to help with had to go back to the table and flick through the papers. The quiche of the day was unknown as vegetables, I asked which vegetables and they said they didn’t know it was a pre-mix - sadly didn’t sound appealing. Service and food were good on arrival Myself and others in the venue kept hitting our heads on the low hanging lamp shades. They look nice but hung way too low!

Lovely place, but this is my 2nd visit & a couple of things - the 1st visit no t bag in t pot, asked for hot milk with coffee brought cold. 2nd visit - only ordered 2 drinks & a cake - forgot to bring cake! Sorry it’s not positive feedback - you’ve got a lovely place & I will always recommend you.
