We are sorry to read your disappointing review. Just for clarity, when a bridal party are considering to book with us they are offered a complementary tasting meal, to ensure they are happy with the style, presentation and content of the meal. This party were happy with the meal and their choices, so it was disappointing that as a guest, on the day, you were not. The party did arrange for floral arrangements, in addition to the floral pots and hanging baskets already on display; we consider our Spring garden display to be delightful and in-keeping with the property. Nonetheless, we are sorry you personally didn't enjoy the experience.

A visiting American relative chose this hotel for a very British afternoon tea last year and it was perfect. She loved it. So this year I took my daughter and three of her friends for a posh girly tea party. Pinkies in the air like Charity from the Greatest Showman. They had a
