A group of us went here for afternoon tea on Mothers Day, even though they were very busy the staff were attentive and helpful. We had my two grandchildren with us and they even made some extra sandwiches for them that they loved (Nutella was involved). I must say they have the best scones I have had with an afternoon...

Booked an afternoon tea for mother's day and was pretty disappointed with the experience. The exterior of the hotel isn't particularly pleasing. It looks like a higgeldy piggeldy collection of extensions in different styles. The grounds are pretty non -existent - there was a fountain or two and some daffs growing along a path but really it was just some... More

Had a meal here as part of deal. Did not meet expectations, the website gives the impression of fine dining and that it is not. No atmosphere in the room. Service is ok, but food a big let down.

Stayed locally and used the restaurant- food was good, served quickly and piping hot. The quality is let down by the quantity on the plate. Left feeling hungry! If the portions were just a little bigger then I would not hesitate in scoring a full 5

A great choice and plenty available to eat the service was very good at breakfast time and a very friendly waiter to serve each morning who brought you your tea and coffe the only downside was the toast machine you were not allowed to alter it and it was burning everyone's toast not just one day but over the five...

Great food with pleasant and professional staff. Well priced into the bargain. Elegant silver service. Just wish other patrons could have made more of an effort by not dressing in scruffy jeans and t-shirts as it showed a total lack of respect for fellow diners and staff. Also heard one waitress being berated by a diner because her order wasn't... More
