The coffee's well brewed. The lounge has regular fare with the old English country club feel. Interiors could be better coordinated to better reflect and be authentic to the history of the place. Still a worthwhile visit.

Met several couples holding birthday parties there and all I can say is that the environment is cool and staff friendly. My wife enjoyed the treat and hospitality from the staff. I would visit anytime.

Beautiful and peaceful restaurant with amazing food. I had the high tea, the scones and cakes were to die for. I ended up staying till dinner which was lovely. The staff were fantastic, and I still think about the butternut soup.

Yes I definitely think you would need to make an appointment to be a supplier as I am sure that there would be a procurement team in place and you would need to get the right person when you meet them. Good luck .
