Went here with my two daughters & two grandaughters as a treat for me for mothers day, The setting was lovely, however, as we went through the door we all noticed 2 pairs of scruffy slippers just inside slung in a corner. The man on reception greeted us warmly, as did the waitress that took us to our table.Cups, ect were something you would expect in any cafe, not nice china ones you mostly get with afternoon teas [and weve done quite a few]. The sandwiches were ok, no more than that. Then the scones arrived, well, they were burnt and hard, not at all fresh.The cream, well, not to sure what that was.
The parts of the place that we saw needs a total refurb, very run down. Would not go again.
