We had the afternoon tea, the food was plentiful and tasty. The hot chocolate was a lovely finish. A special shout out to David who was so polite and attentive. Excellent service and good value for money. I’ll definitely be returning.

Don’t bother unless fly swotting is your sport. Place is full of fruit flies and obviously has a hygiene problem. Told the waiter and would get more response from talking to the tea pot. Manageress said they are coming from outside..... I think not.

Visited for afternoon tea and we were all very impressed. Great service from the friendly staff and all the tea you could drink. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were delicious and highly recommended.

We visited having bought a groupon deal for brunch for 2. We both had eggs Benedict, the wife's as the traditional with bacon, mine as the royale (with smoked salmon). Both were very tasty, and would definitely recommend it.
