We have a review on here of someone (daze1721) back in June 2016 waxing lyrical about a gluten free afternoon tea. They said it mirrored the ordinary tea except for one dessert, which was replaced with chocolate brownies. They had chocolate bombs and mini fruit...More

We were given a lovely voucher for tea - we wouldn’t normally pay that for afternoon tea but we are local and always enjoy the hotel. We had struggled to get a booking on a weekend of our choice as the hotel doesn’t take non-residents...More

We generally will have an afternoon tea 1 or 2 times during our 4 or 5 day visit. This tea is very good. It is (in our experience and opinion) very well priced. The tea is at times "bagged" not loose which certainly is strange...More
