We went here as an alternative to your normal Afternoon Tea. The picnic benches are fantastic. Good variety of food.

They even give you a box to take away any leftovers which was a nice touch as I am always too embarrassed to ask to doggy bag anything! It meant I didn't have to stuff myself and yet, none went to waste either and was able to enjoy a piece of cheesecake with a coffee later that afternoon.

The place itself is nice, perhaps a bit quiet and lacking in atmosphere though.

We work really hard to ensure that our food is plentiful and of an excellent standard using fresh, local ingredients.
Sorry you came on one of our quieter days so there wasn't much going on, naturally we would have wanted a busier day for you.

Ok so I've experienced the so called afternoon Tea on many occasions and this one was on a different level..
Gone where the delicate sarnies cut into four, but replaced and remixed with a gorgeous beefburger with cheese and chicken goujons and hand cooked chips... BOOM..

This folks was a taste sensation, locally sourced produce that was major league tasty.

Along with the above mentioned was a mix of Cheesecake, Eton Mess, Chocolate brownie, scones and a delicious milkshake..

Not only was the food a cut above but the staff were dynamite, nothing was too much and all with a smile...

Good to see how afternoon Tea has evolved for the better..

Too marks.. Straight to the top of the blooming class... Excellent... Many thanks and see you again.....

Took our dear friends to FSK on Saturday night and none of us left disappointed. From the starters (all had different and there were several others) to the steak mains, everything was perfect. Cooked expertly, served with humour and good banter, the whole feel of the place was special. Fantastic food and ambiance with great company. Anything else you need?!

Considering the size of the restaurant, a large group of us were well catered for and looked after. We all had afternoon tea brought out on picnic benches. Never had one like this before and it was great not to just have sandwiches and scones. Well worth it but couldn’t eat it all so they provided boxes to take the rest home. Go there!

Had steak/chips/pepper sauce
Waitress was extremely engaging but not overly so - especially as I was dining solo! The food was delicious - fresh really well cooked and topped off with a delicious alcohol free Seedlip gin! A rare find outside of London!

Will definitely revisit next time I’m in Worcester.
