The rating would have been excellent but for the fact that although we had booked for 4 people at 2pm, we had to wait quite a while for our meal. The 'afternoon tea' was delicious when it did finally arrive and we were served copious amounts of tea whilst we were waiting. Our thanks especially to Corrie who was most pleasant and I apologise for my 'niggle' about the wait as I am sure it was beyond his control. No complaints at all about the food. Delicious.

My wife and I visited The Dining Room at the Victoria for afternoon Tea. I have to say that the food was plentiful and delicious and we ended up bring a couple of the cakes home with us. The only disappointment was that we were served with our 'tea' quite a while before our 'Afternoon Tea ' arrived. This meant that our drinks were cold when we were eating. Other establishments offer unlimited 'tea' and on this occasion we were not offered further drinks. It was also strange to receive the 'bill' before our food arrived!

When my husband suggested here for a last min meal out I must admit I turned my nose up. Before we were married & i moved here (im originally a southerner) I used to stay in what was the bower at weekends when I came upto visit my husband & his family. I stayed here out of pure ease as it was close to where I needed to be. As the bower nothing struck me as outstanding. But what a transformation! Now under new ownership and called the Victoria I can't believe the difference! Its bright, welcoming and exactly the opposite of what I remember. We had cocktails and a meal with friends and it was so nice! The staff did everything they possibly could to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. From Julie taking our food order in the bar and letting us know when it was ready to be served (she could obviously tell we were comfy) to AJ making our visit to the resturant a lovely experience. The food portions are massive in my eyes and everything is cooked fresh. No microwave food in sight! They honestly couldn't of done more for us. We will definitely be becoming regulars here thats for sure...

We decided to visit as we liked the sound of the afternoon tea and glad we did it was delicious!
It was a lovely treat, the restaurant is very nice and had a good atmosphere. There were a variety of teas - I would recommend strawberries and cream! We had a choice of sandwiches a quite a number of cakes of cakes which I don't think anyone could finish off in one sitting - who can complain at that! The waitress was lovely and didn't mind wrapping up the rest of our cakes to enjoy at home. Wonderful experience and will be going back with friends I'm sure.

Having booked afternoon tea on 14th Aug for 3 people we were looking forward to the experience! We arrived and explained there were 3 of us and we were going to share afternoon tea for 2. This was met with a puzzled look and we were told I ll check with manager but we're not allowed to share them. She disappeared came back and said no it was per head! If there was 3 of us we would be charged per person even if we only ordered afternoon tea for 2! She said we would be charged for 3 as there were 3 of us!!! We explained that the reason for sharing was because due to medication one person only wanted small portion! Even this explanation made no difference and we were told they would parcel up the left overs! We were about to leave at this point until a lunch menu was offered to us. We didn't want lunch really at 2.30pm but we ordered lunch.
Later a young boy came past with 2 afternoon teas and stated you want to try these one day look how much you get!!
We looked at each other in dismay!
The experienced staff member who came on shift later understood our complaint and was very professional!

I emailed the hotel directly and to date have had no response! Is this the way to create new business and gain customers through Very strange draconian ideas!
