I waited around 20 minutes for a table on a bank holiday weekend afternoon and chose the 'half' afternoon tea ( fruit scone, jam, clotted cream, tea). It took a while for the waitresses to realise I was waiting to order as the table I...More

We enjoyed our lunch - tuna jacket potato and lamb in flatbread. Absolutely fine but not wow! It was busy so had a short wait but that was not an issue. It is not a huge place. They do try to get people in ASAP....More
