Dear Kevin, thank you very much for posting you review and giving such a comprehensive run down of your experience. All feedback is useful and I will take a look at the salad garnish we provide to try and get some consistency on that point....More

Dear Paul W. It sounds to me that this resume of what took place has missed out some important elements. I understand that despite my front of house manager letting you know what was on the voucher and what that entitled you to, that she...More

For an independent supposedly upmarket tea room I was very taken aback by the Manager’s behaviour today. I took my daughter in for a light lunch having been in before. Unfortunately my salmon roulade didn’t taste quite right and on a very hot day I...More
