Had a lovely afternoon here with a friend and my two teenagers daughters. They are extremely fussy and will only eat certain things, but I contacted the hotel before hand and they went to a lot of trouble to provide alternatives that the girls would enjoy. I was emailed and contacted by the extremely helpful staff, particularly James Collard, who... More

The service is just a little slower than I would like, but the place was fairly busy. Everything very fresh. Will visit again certainly.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere, staff were super friendly and very attentive, the food was delicious and very filling. I took my mother there for her birthday and although the weather wasn't great and therefore we couldn't visit the gardens the house and staff more than made up for it. We will definitely be going back

The treat begins from the moment you turn off the road to drive through parkland. The house itself is sumptuous and afternoon tea was served in comfort. Staff were helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Surprisingly, the sandwiches were rather a highlight with flavoured speciality breads adding both colour and piquancy to the flavour. Scones and cakes too came with... More

Afternoon tea was excellent with plenty of fresh sandwiches, cakes & scones. We even had refill of sandwiches for children, plus plenty of tea and coffee refills. The staff were very helpful and very good service, very professional. Would love to go again.
