Always enjoy our champagne afternoon tea. Strawberries and champagne arrived after sandwiches which isn’t usually how we receive it in order also no ask if we would like our tea or coffee refreshed during the two hours

Up to your usual high standard. However we felt the champagne glass was smaller than previously offered as was the volume.The amount of strawberries and cream was also less. That said the remainder of the afternoon tea was superb as usual as was the service.

Treated so well we felt very important. It was my 70th birthday and I couldn’t have asked for a better present. The service, food and atmosphere were amazing. Would definitely recommend!

We had a lovely time and the service was excellent - friendly, relaxed and attentive - but, we did feel it was rather over priced for what was ,after all, a simple afternoon tea.

The food and service are excellent, but I find the room cold. This is our 3rd visit for afternoon tea and each time I have had to put my coat over my shoulders, the air conditioning needs adjusting or turning off in the winter months

The service was great but felt the afternoon tea was not worth the money and felt disappointed I have previously been before and there was more variety of French pastries, and Scones were warm. No offer of refills for scones or pastries as we heard it being offered to other clients.
