4 of us had the picnic bench. The service was great, the food was great and we would definitely return it's nice to have something a little different from the normal afternoon tea.

There were a group of girls also sat behind us who had come in after us and had got their picnic... More

This was our first visit and we had a Valentines afternoon tea here. The meal itself was ok- didn't blow me away but was very pleasant. The non traditional savouries were very good. The soup, burger (a tad cold) and spring roll were yummy. Overall the weighting of the afternoon tea was very Sweet and I would have preferred more... More

It's a nice enough looking place. It was busy when I was there, a nice crowd of people but still places to sit. I sat at a quiet end of the bar. My pint of bitter tasted awful but the barman happily changed it.

When we arrived we were seated upstairs which was nice and quiet with just one other table of people. This was lovely apart from the fact you could hear the staff in the corner talking about all of there personal business! We then we're asked again if there were any dietary requirements even though I stated one vegetarian when booking.... More

Excellent food and good atmosphere even though not busy. Only criticism the staff were rather slow to clear the table and my chips didn't arrive with my meal even though was told they were on the way. Arrived ten minutes later, the chef having forgotten them. Would have been 10 out of ten otherwise. Will definitely go again as we... More

I have eaten here twice in the past and while I do not not want to draw from recent negative press that this place has had regarding hygiene I just thought I should comment about my experience of eating there. The first time I ate here was around 16 months ago and I had a seafood platter. We were seated... More
