Felt the cakes were a little ordinary/plain (non-Descript), nothing new, compared to other places that do Afternoon Tea. Not sure it merits £32.95 for 2pers.

Very enjoyable afternoon tea with friends. Had received a voucher as a prize in a charity raffle so possibly would not have chosen this venue otherwise. Well looked after by friendly and helpful staff, no pressure to leave so we took our time and relaxed.

Visited on Tuesday 6th June with my mum and had afternoon tea with a bottle of champagne. Very reasonably priced and the champagne was lovely. Afternoon tea was excellent and filled us both up. Service was first class. Will definitely return.

Lovely selection of sandwiches, cakes etc, in an extremely relaxing environment! We had an Itison deal voucher so had paid about half the normal cost! I would definitely have no hesitation in returning. Staff also were very pleasant and attentive.
