Fantastic place for afternoon tea and a glass of fizz. Lovely attentive staff, explain the afternoon tea menu in full to you. Lovely warm and welcoming atmosphere laid back but in a nice way. Staff went out of their way to make you feel welcome. Absolutely will return again.

Four of us stayed here to celebrate my friends birthday. Initially there was a mix up with our rooms as we had booked two twins but were given a double and a twin.

We booked the private dining room for a party. It was a set menu but the food was all delicious and the service was excellent. The waitress was really attentive with drinks and helping us.

What did I like? Everything!! We stayed in the luxury loft (St Marys Loft) and it was unreal! The room was a great size, beautiful decorated, very clean with everything we needed.
