Afternoon Tea

A lovely place with a unique atmosphere. Staff were extremely accommodating and friendly; happy to make conversation with us. The afternoon tea itself was very nice, the silver service is a welcomed added touch, although I do feel the food could be of better value for money. There wasn't a lot of... read more

We were shown down to the bar area but were advised that we could have our table earlier if we wanted (we declined ) .when we decided to go upstairs to our table we couldn't fault the service or the food ...

I and my family have now visited the Chapel on several Sundays to enjoy a really good Lunch.You are greeted by the Head Waiter as long lost friends-and guides you too one of the comfortable tables where drinks are swiftly served to put you in a relaxed mood.

Forgot to write this review for a visit several months ago. Lovely feel to the place, very different atmosphere than expected. Food was very very nice and very moorish, well prepared and well cooked. Full of flavour and plenty of choice. Portion sizes do look small but very filling so that works out well. Would definately return again soon.

Restuarant upstairs..bar and music downstairs. Bearing in mind 19 different tastes in our partie there were only positive comments regarding starters like... More

This restaurant is on the Gourmet Society list of restaurants but the owner explained that it should have been removed 2 years ago and she no longer gives... More
