Third time to Mansion for afternoon tea and it was amazing as usual. Love the fact it has been slightly different every time I have been. Excellent value for the celebration afternoon tea that includes 2 glasses of prosecco.

Second visit to the Mansion for afternoon tea. Not quite as good as the last time. Sandwiches were good although the smoked salmon sandwiches were a bit stale. Lots of cakes although again a bit disappointing with very dry carrot cake and mini Eton mess had very little meringue and just cream but overall reasonable value and very full at... More

Went here on a sunny day and wanted to sit outside but it was way too crowded. So make a reservation in advance! The food was amazing. Had the ciabatta bread vegetarian sandwich with chips and ice cream for dessert. Everything was top notch. Only the service was a little slow,not sure if it was on just that particular day.... More

Sunny day, so most were sat at tables outside, leaving plenty of space inside. Food was great, service very good. Only thing preventing 5 stars is price.

Came here on a Saturday with girlfriend, the weather was lush. We had a reservation with open table but the restaurant said they didn't receive any reservation, nonetheless it wasn't busy so we were able to sit down pretty quickly. Services was wonderful, food was average nothing special or out standing. Perfect spot for a weekend drink, brunch or high... More

Beautiful setting at the head of the park. Decided to stop for a few drinks in the sun this afternoon. Service really polite but not enough of them and has to go inside to pay in the end. Only ordered drinks one of which was a £3.50 smoothie. Obviously just from a carton and not fresh. Tasted awful. Rip off

Went for family lunch and were delighted with the ambience, menu and service. The staff couldn't do enough to help. Our waitress was very enthusiastic in telling us about the various dishes on offer as the staff are given the opportunity to try out new dishes when the menu changes. What a good idea as she really helped with my... More

Rarely leave reviews but the coffee here happens to be the worst I've ever had. Literally dish water. Such a shame there is no effort by this company to raise standards beyond the corporate work they do. Ive been here many times before and it's always been the same lack lustre affair. I should of listened to myself many time... More

Booked a table for 8 at 1pm and unfortunately some of the party were late and we didn't order till 1.30. The already limited menu was further restricted by several items being unavailable, and it was almost an hour before we saw any food. The occasion was saved by the fact that all the food, when it arrived, was enjoyable.... More
