I have been here several times for their evening dining and the meals have been excellent. We called in today for afternoon tea and they were advertising a strawberry cream tea which, according to a card on the tables, consisted of fresh strawberries, scone, clotted cream, "lovely" strawberry jam and tea or coffee. This was all for the excellent price of £4.50 each.
We were each served a dish of strawberries, a scone and a small portion of clotted cream along with our tea. I queried with the waitress regarding the lack of jam, but she said that they used to provide a pot of jam, but now the jam was in the dish with the strawberries. The dish of strawberries actually had a decorative smearing of jam around the edge which was impossible to remove to spread on the scone.
I was sure that this was not how it was meant to be served and on the way out spotted the owner who was loading a van. I told him we were disappointed and explained what had happened and he agreed that that was not how it was meant to be served and said he would sort it. However, he appeared not to say anything about it to the waitress who was now helping with the loading and I left feeling that neither had taken much notice of my complaint.
