My friend treated us to afternoon tea at the hotels court bar. It's situated in the front of the hotel with access to the court yard at the back. Unfortunately the weather didn't allow us to sit outside. However the bar is nicely finished and is clean and fresh. We were seated by a lovely waiter. So polite and friendly.... More

My friend and I enjoyed an afternoon tea for two offer through Groupon which for the money was more than adequate. Pleasant and friendly staff, attentive, and welcoming. The sandwiches were fine, a good mixture, with clotted cream and jam scones, and some smaller slices of mixed sponges, but for two of us,we didn't go hungry.We had plenty of tea,... More

We ate in the bar tonight. We spent almost £50 on 2 children's nuggets, 1 fish / chips, 1 chicken / chips / side salad. It was truly awful and was made up of frozen chips, microwaved chicken, frozen foods. It's probably the worst hotel meal, no sorry worst meal I have had the injustice of paying for for sometime....

We purchased afternoon tea from Groupon and even at the discounted rate is was not worth the money.We have been to several afternoon teas and this was the only one which was poor.The waitress showed us to our table & asked if we wanted tea or coffee - this was brought to our table with the food without another word...
