We enjoyed an afternoon tea yesterday to celebrate my husbands 50th Birthday. Whilst the atmosphere of the Old Parsonage was fabulous and the food was really lovely, we were slightly disappointed at being allocated a table right by the front door. I booked this treat 6+ weeks prior to the date so would have preferred a better location. Not only was the table by the door, which was constantly being opened and closed, but it was also by the reception, so as we were enjoying our afternoon tea we constantly had people standing beside and around us wanting to check in/check out etc. I did ask if we could be moved and was told there was no alternative table, unfortunately. Overall the afternoon tea was superb and had we had a better table location the experience would have been more enjoyable. This has not put us off going again, but perhaps is worthy of note for future visitors.
