What a lovely afternoon tea. 6 colleagues and myself enjoyed a simple selection of sandwiches and cakes. Catering for fussy eaters also with a constant supply of tea. Would recommend ringing ahead for changes to your selection. Fabulous service in a comfortable environment

Ate here recently with friends and the food was surprisingly good and very reasonably priced too. My friends had burgers which looked delicious. Would return again
