A very relaxed setting for Afternoon Tea and a girly catch up. Staff left us alone to chatter and we didn't feel any time pressure once we had finished. I can never understand why, when you are having tea for two, the venue provides odd numbers of nibbles! i.e. 3 scones, 1 eclair, 1 cream slice, 1 banoffee pie -... More

Great selection of cakes and sandwiches. Most places have very exotic flavours, but this was very traditional to the area which was lovely. The scones were very tasteful with plenty of clotted cream and jam. Staff were very friendly and looked after us well during our stay.

We had afternoon tea during our hotel stay. The sandwiches were fresh, the scones were warm and there were also 2 mini eclairs and 4 other mini cakes. The creme brulee tart would have been excellent had it not been stored in the fridge by an onion as it ended up tasting like quiche! Friendly staff and was all fresh... More

Not quite what we expected more like a low tea than a High. Every thing was acceptable but no sparkle

First class although a tad expensive. Finger sandwiches scones and cakes plus a decent pot of tea. How decadent but nice!

We were the only people in the place. It's a big barn of a place painted in weird colours. Baronial castle type of decor. Afternoon tea would have been better in the bar area. The windows in the restaurant are huge but very high. There is an amazing view but you can't see it from the seating area. The cakes... More
