We decided to visit the Courtyard as a last minute outing to have afternoon tea yesterday (Saturday) afternoon. The website advised that booking is essential so I phoned them at 2pm and at 3pm we were sat at our table looking out at the splendid gardens.
The house champagne was served in generously large flutes. We had never heard of the brand but it tasted as good as a premium non-vintage champagne. When the food arrived it looked splendid. And it was.
The sandwiches were tasty, the scones superb and the cakes excellent. It seemed obvious that they were all home made. One thing that was slightly unusual was that the scones had already been cut and the jam and cream applied prior to serving. This was fine but if you would prefer to put your own preserves and cream on this is not ideal.
Having said that the jam was very good and the cream extremely fresh and tasty!
Overall a very nice experience in a pleasant location and good value for money.
The staff were extremely pleasant and efficient.
We plan to return to try dinner at some point.
