    Very nice experience and ambiance. Staff was very nice but the sandwiches were the worst I’ve had at a high tea experience. Unfortunately there was no filling and the bread was very bland and dry. The “birthday cake” (which was not cheap) was basically just a large sweet piece of bread.

    We had a delightful high tea! They were very accommodating and did everything they could to ensure we had the best experience possible. The space is very cozy and feels like a fancy British living room. It also had really good acoustics and wasn't too loud despite how busy it was. I highly recommend!

    It is a beautiful setting and service is wonderful. Food is good but not outstanding and not worth the price. The pastries for the sweet treat were disappointing. Skip the chocolate strawberry and serve a nice tartlets or a small delicious bite of cake instead. Also sandwiches weren’t quite up to par. I expected a little more for spending that much. However the setting and service are superb so it was still a nice experience.

    8 of 10! I booked this place for my daughter’s birthday. We ended up in the “garden room area”. The decor and ambiance was beautiful but the space was cold. The tea helped to keep us warm as did the overhead warming lamp, however, our feet were freezing. The warmth from the lamp only kept one of us warm, the tea kept the other two warm-ish but we were not 100% comfortable. We almost kept our coats on but felt we should stick it out coat-less. If there were warmers on the floor, it would be much more comfortable and I would’ve rated the experience higher. The teas were delicious and so were most of the sandwiches. We had our favorites and some we wouldn’t try again. The scones were yummy and the chocolate mousse was a great finish to a good nosh! Lastly, the service was good when someone was in the area( two areas, front and garden) but there were times we felt that we had to wait quite a while for a refill of the tea or for the cream. Overall, my girls really enjoyed the experience and I would recommend it to others. Just make sure to book inside during the colder months ( I imagine it would be beautiful during the warmer months)
