My husband and I popped in on the spur of the moment for afternoon tea. It was 2 people for £16, well worth it. A lovely display of sandwiches, jam & cream scones and cakes. Would definitely recommend. Only reason didn't score a 5 was because unfortunately the waitress never raised 1 smile, very grumpy!

Was very dubious as was very disappointed the last time I went. How wrong could I be. We were all more than pleased with our choice of... More

We thought we would give this place a try as its one of the few places in town we havent been to before. We were not very impressed at all. We won't be going back again.

I had been given a voucher as a birthday present in September and was in no rush to use it as our last visit for Sunday lunch was less than impressive. Seeing our voucher was almost at the six month cut off date, me and my husband decided to use it on this cold Monday evening. Bar was warm and... More

Our entire groundfloor is tiled. We only use brushes and mops for our daily cleaning which is at 8am. We have a large bar and reception area, and have never excluded anyone from those areas. If any cleaning is required, we would assist with relocating them to an adjacent table. There is no TV in the bar area. There is... More
