Dropped in for a welcoming greeting and a delicious afternoon tea on Sunday. Bread was very fresh for the sandwiches and the cakes were delicious. Only criticism is that service can be a little erratic. The hostess is most attentive when around.

This place has been trying to get a Michelin star for a few years. The food is still not quite up to scratch. Oh, it's good, but not great. However, the dining 'experience' is exceptional. From the meeters and greeters, through to the sommelier who explains the virtues of each wine for each course. Pleasant staff, extremely professional, give a... More
