Today I had a fresh salmon sandwich on brown bread. I would like to know what make of bread is used as it was not only thick but dry and tasteless. There are such lovely breads available - granary, seeded etc.

Just left after waiting 50 mins. Apparently a technical issue meant that a ticket wasn't generated for our order. So why did our waitress not see that we were waiting? Asked one of the other waitresses to see where our Platinum tea was and she didn't come back!! Must admit this was a freebie because we have just spent thousands... More

We did the magnificent Father Christmas breakfast celebration and today we had an excellent lunch. Although the food is always high quality our experience is enhanced by the high quality service and friendliness of all the staff. Nothing is too much trouble and in particular Rita and Anne are particularly welcoming, remembering our names and always asking about our granddaughter... More

Called in to Housing Units to try their 70th Birthday Celebration afternoon tea. Wow! It was beautiful. The food is always perfect. I love this place. The staff are wonderful. Rita couldn't do enough for us. She remembered us from the last time we had lunch there - even down to the table we sat at. Now that's wonderful customer... More

I've been here a couple of times before. It's fine for a quick tea or coffee but they are way overpriced for their standard of food. It's okay but average at best. The food looks amazing as do the cakes however they don't taste amazing. I had an omelette and my mother had the soup. We also had a cake... More
