This has to be my favourite afternoon tea experience to date! Wedgwood have got this spot on - absolute luxury but at an accessible price. Mike was a darling too! Thank you so much for this wonderful experience.

Wedgwood to me is the greatest pot, plate and statue maker. I've waited four years to come here since I read about it. We took the tour of the factory and then went to the cafe for a refreshment and rest. Then looked round the...More

They serve what has to be one of the best afternoon tea’s anywhere around. Can highly recommend. Take a glass of Prosecco or champagne at a very reasonable price to add that little extra touch
