The Grand Hotel has a feel of colonial times, whether you just go for tea, dinner, or spend time in the lovely garden. We would definitely stay overnight next time we go, to start and finish our day here.

High Tea here should be a real experience but it was quite dull, service was a wee bit lax, the cakes were quite poor, only the tea itself was really nice, not really worth the money, have a cup of tea in the grounds instead

Tea on the terrace is must. Great desserts, quick service. The hotel itself is interesting, a piece of England in the middle of nowhere. Visit billiard hall. Stay for a night or two to reset. Magnolia restaurant is great as well.
