We entered and every single table was filthy and full of plates while one girl that was tidying up just stood staring at the table full picking her nails all over the table! It took her 15 mins to clear 4 plates off a table as she just stood and stared at them. Then she kept coming to our table when we were trying eat to put a dirty basket on to fill the cutlery never know a staff member so useless a think a chocolate teapot would of been more use. But cake and hot choc was delicious just a little pricey

I can’t thank the staff enough for all their hard work. My daughter, friends and family had a lovely afternoon for my daughters baby shower. The food was beautiful a good selection of sandwiches with plenty of filling plus also side plates of salad. There was a great selection of cakes and the scones were to die for, they were huge!! plenty of jam and cream. Large pots of tea and coffee with china cups and saucers which was really quaint. They also catered for a friend who was vegan and she was more than happy with the selection of sandwiches and cakes, the only thing she left was a few crumbs!! I would definitely recommend for a special occasion. Once again thank you to all the staff for making our afternoon a perfect one x x

Got our table at same time as another couple. Ordered a sandwich and bowl of soup and waited and waited . The other couple were served and gone long before us. Another couple came in long after us and were served with toasted Paninis, we still waited. Another lady came in, was served and we still waited. Went up to ask if they had forgotten us, apparently no they were busy. Eventually food came, sandwich okay but soup was barely warm. No apologies for having to wait so long.
