The food in the lounge is excellent and very big portions. Very good value for money and you feel pampered.

8 girls enjoying the afternoon tea having taken advantage of the fantastic offer of £25 for two. Sandwiches and cakes were absolutely spot on as was the glass of rose champagne and bottomless cups of tea and coffee. Thoroughly enjoyed and a very relaxing afternoon with very attentive staff. Well done.

Well filled, fresh sandwiches in four varieties, lovely fresh sultana scone with jam and cream followed by a variety of yummy cakes washed down with a glass of pink Champagne and a good pot of tea from the assortment of teas offered. Service was very pleasant and... More

Afternoon tea on 4th August was very disappointing. Poor white sliced bread and cheap 'butter'. One scone each ! The cake stands, tea pots were of poor quality and tatty. We have had several afternoon teas - Oakly Manor not too far from you is superb. However, your staff very good.

I booked Afternoon Tea as a treat for my elderly parents. The lounge area is comfortable, relaxed with seating both inside and out, overlooking the River Thames. Upon arrival we were shown to our table, seated on a comfortable sofa and chairs, which was by an open door leading to the garden overlooking the river. Being an extremely hot day,... More
