We were treated to an excellent afternoon tea on Mothering Sunday. Spotless table cloths, linen napkins, tables beautifully laid with fresh flowers too. Delicious sandwiches of many varieties, all freshly made, delightful dainty pastries, scones with jam and clotted cream, endless tea in china pots. You couldn't ask for more. The service was excellent too on a very busy afternoon.... More

All of the dishes we tried were beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious. Better than any Indian restaurant we have visited! There was a most welcoming atmosphere in the restaurant.The young staff were very professional,... More

Have visited this restaurant several times for lunch and never been disappointed. Visited yesterday to take my mother for lunch on Mothering Sunday. Once again, this restaurant surpassed all expectations. The restaurant was full, very busy. However, the staff were delightful, helpful and at no time did we feel rushed to eat up and get out! The tables were beautifully... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We went as a birthday treat courtesy of a Groupon voucher. The restaurant was moderately busy but this did not influence the attentiveness of the young staff. Apart from being asked if every thing was OK on numerous occasions we were aware that the staff were checking from a distance that things... More

I had lunch here with my wife, we both had the triple decker sandwich that comes with chips and coleslaw. Very reasonably priced and lovely views of the Harbour. Service very good. Will definitely return
