The staff spilled the coffee. The cakes were not fresh. The food was not tasty. The forks were dirty. The serving was not good.

I visited here with friends, we booked a few weeks in advance and had a lovely table by the window. The place is very well presented and the staff are attentive. However, we chose the christmas afternoon tea £28 for two people, this does not include drinks just one pot of tea, you are allowed one sandwich each, one cake... More

Not enough tea to sustain us during the lengthy wait for the meal. Toast served with unwanted matter on one corner which had to be sent back. Card reader failed and we were expected to leave the cafe and return with cash - the suggestion was that we undertook this immediately. Furthermore, we were asked for our vehicle registration!

I visited with a friend on Sunday having had no other food that day. My friends pannini had hairs all over the bottom so sent it back. I had the ploughman's lunch and within an 15 minutes of eating I felt nauseous. Within two hours I was vomiting and had extremely severe diarrhea. Two days later I'm off work and... More

Hi Helen have read your review on trip advisor and i must say your comments are exaggerated and unfounded. The one hair found on your pannini turned out to be hair from mushrooms which were cooked on the same grill and were bought in fresh that day from a local farmers market, they were not human hair as you are...

What a lovely experience - really enjoyed myself. The service was excellent as was the food. The staff were friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough to make our visit a pleasant one. Endless tea top-ups which were very welcome and enjoyable. Will definitely visit again soon. Thank you very much.

Came with friends for a spot of lunch. I ordered a large Americano with a toasted tea cake, friends ordered jacket potatoes which came out microwaved 😕...coffee was awful and no way worth £2.70. Plus it came out well before food so it was drunk before we'd eaten. It's a shame as it could be lovely

Overpriced, poor service - don't bother going. Don't waste your time or money. Scones are not homemade - are bought in from Costco. We waited 30 mins to be brought a cup of tea and coffee - service was shockingly poor with 5 staff stood in the 'kitchen' area texting. Your 'cook doesn't bake so your 'home-made' signage is inaccurate.... More
