we were given an afternoon tea virgin experience voucher and booked here after reading reviews.. This was a lovely relaxed environment. staff were friendly, helpful but not intrusive. The choice of teas was excellent, and other drinks, including wine available. The food was lovely and freshly prepared. A buffet that was constantly replenished. Old favourite sandwich fillings, e.g. egg, chesses... More

Food quality cannot be praised highly enough .. everything is cooked to perfection. A lamb shank - the meat falls off the bone. Salmon - tastes that fresh it must have been caught that very morning. And the staff - very attentive, pleasant and professional.

Two visits recently with different groups of friends both gave us the same experience. Lovely, peaceful place, great food, an unhurried approach to the meal and everyone satisfied. What more can you ask for? The comments made by others about being stuck in some sort of time wharp fail to see that this is an old country house hotel. It... More

Lovely welcome, choice of seating and more than surprised by the variety and quality of the food. Excellent choice of teas and offered replenishments. Only difficulty was not being too greedy. First class service. Considering it was a wet Wednesday afternoon in February, it was noticeable how many people were there enjoying tea and creating a friendly atmosphere. Very easy... More
