Tripadvisor Review August 2014
“Afternoon delight -Booked an afternoon tea. Was warmly greeted and shown into one of the lovely rooms. Very attentive staff took our order, all three wanted a different tea, but the waitress didn’t blink an eye. The drinks arrived and whenever we needed either hot water or more tea – no problem. The three tired stand arrived with a variety of sandwiches, cakes and scones all elegantly presented and tasted fantastic. After a very leisurely meal we wandered the grounds and thought of when we would be returning.”
