We had a birthday lunch for 8 people on a Saturday around 13h00. The waitress at first refused to join a few tables together saying that it was not allowed. She however later accommodated us. She took our orders without writing it down, which looks impressive but she forgot the birthday girls order which came an hour and a half... More

Really nice location with great decor and interesting menu. Food was great, service was average. We had a group too big for 4 seater round table and asked if we could put two tables together. The reply was - sure sit anywhere! So we happily chose a spot and then were told -no not there. So we sat where we... More

Positioned as a dessert place, the cake was dry. Most of the selection of chocolate is not available. The macarons have been there for a while.

Having visited Myatt many times in the past for tea and cake which has lets been a favorite, we decided to go for a birthday lunch. What a disaster. The waitress didn't confirm the order so as a result one lady hd to wait an extra 15 mins before getting her meal-we were almost through our food. My chicken salad... More

It looked promising, but we were slightly disappointed. Some of the menu items we wished to order "weren't available yet" as they were only available at certain times of the day. Since we were 20 mins too early, this was really odd, the kitchen refused to budge and the waitress was rather embarrassed. We are talking about a milkshake here!... More

Had went to Myatts before and gotten good service and food. On Monday, we had went for lunch (2people), and had waited an hour for a sandwich & burger. The burger order had come out wrong after an hour & got sent back. The chef had taken it back & when it came out was dry & inedible. Just left... More

We have visited this restaurant once for a sit-down breakfast and approximately 3 times for take-out. The service is appalling and the goods are way over-priced.

The Macoroons are super tiny and super expensive. The tea flavours are amazing however they dont allow you to share teas so you end up with three pots of tea and a full bladder. The bill was expensive! i would only suggest Myatt's if you like to be "seen" taking selfie's in a pretty setting otherwise its a rip off.

Still a bit of a secret ,thank goodness. Who enjoys queuing ? Menu. Simple and superb. Nice touches are : International newspapers free to read. Plus large selection of magazines. Help yourself to water. Seating is spacious. Ambiance quite . Far from the Madding Crowd.
