Excellent food, great atmosphere and wonderful customer service

We have no negative feedback to give, all perfect!

Customer attention by the staff was excellent and very accommodating. We have been on a few afternoon teas and this was the best yet.

Staff inquired if we had any allergies to any food substances which was good and also made me a special pot of jam to go with the home made scones as I didn't want strawberry jam. Also they didn't skimp on the food or the pots of tea. A plus was the wine from their own vineyard.

Polite and friendly staff - wonderful food

16 March 2015 Teresa United Kingdom

There was a problem with the kitchen. Apparently the scones had gone wrong. This meant we had a very long wait for the tea to arrive. I could not understand why we were not given the sandwiches at least. We did not realise that we were paying equivalent to £8.95 for a glass of wine. If we went again we would just pay the £14.95 which was the price for the full afternoon tea without wine.
