Having previously been to the Bistro for lunch on several occasions & been very pleased with the food, I recommended this venue to friends for afternoon tea. None of us, however, would repeat the experience. At £16.95 each, we all felt it was extremely expensive...More

Lovely surroundings, lovely food. service poor. We have visited three times and the service has deteriorated. Very poor service today. Complete lack of attention which left us disappointed with our visit. We will think twice over a fourth visit to the Romney Restaurant.
