The atmosphere is lovely and the food is delicious, but I cannot justify the prices unfortunately. I will not be going again, as I can get better value elsewhere.

I met my friends for coffee but ended up having brunch plus a Portuguese tart which was delicious. The staff were attentive and friendly.

We often visit Hothouse, for a light bite to eat and coffees. The atmosphere is always relaxed whether sitting in the conservatory or on the tables outside in the sunshine. Food always looks appetising and a different tasty special every time we visit.

Went for afternoon tea as a large group as a birthday surprise and was unimpressed. Tea pots weren't topped up, seems as though they ran out of cake so lack of variety and very over priced. Won't visit again!

Met family here and it was a good place to chat, but I felt the food and drink was a bit pricey based upon the quantity and quality. Drinks took a long time to arrive.

My husband and I came here for a late breakfast one Sunday morning and we were so glad we'd booked. It got busy really quick. And I can understand why. The service was good and the food yummy! Will be back!!
