Order taken and first course arrived ok then our waitress removed to the cake counter. Had to ask for our main course after at least half an hour - it came immediately but was barely warm enough. It had obviously been waiting for service for some time and no one had noticed. Another long wait until someone came for our... More

Our large group organised a late opening for 41 people for a special 3 course dinner. Ransoms is a ten minute walk ( in the dark!) from the JAAC where we were all staying. Easy to find an welcoming, the tearooms had given us a choice of items to be pre-ordered to make up each meal - and the options... More

Went today for a quick bite to eat on my own before looking around garden centre. Waited for someone to show me where to sit for a little too long but was shown a table. I had a good look at the menu and then waited for someone to take my order, and waited and waited for at least 15... More

Waitress cleared our table and said she she would be straight back. 10 minutes later we were still waiting for her to return! Eventually got served and ordered a Ransoms breakfast and a... More

My wife and I called here one lunchtime for a 'light' lunch and ended up eating far too much. The servings were very generous and came quickly. The alter was very attentive , we were sitting outside in the sun and kept offering to place a sunshade over us, but being unaccustomed to sun we declined and 'cooked'. Having been... More

We called here on our last afternoon as it was raining. We ordered a toasted teacake for my husband and lemon drizzle cake for me as well as pots of tea. When the cake came there were two huge slices so my husband had to help me out. It was delicious. Despite it being very busy the service was excellent... More

My husband and I could have happily sat here all day working our way through the excellent menu. We arrived mid morning - after walking up the hill out of Gorey so we were ready for coffee and cake.

We went there with our family, six in total. The waitress seemed incapable of bringing the correct amount of drinks, leaving us a tea short to begin with, then when prompted to bring that brought it without a cup to drink it from. When that was finally produced we were still a milk and a glass of water short, When... More
