My daughter and I enjoyed an afternoon tea at the restaurant. It is best to park in Waitrose as on-street parking is scarce and limited to short-stay. If you like old-fashioned and quaint this is the place to go but decor is slightly tired. The...More

Service was acceptable but staff seemed to be in an unholy rush firstly to take our order and then to present the bill. We went for shared cream tea. Scones were stale as were the crusts of the bread. For the price you should expect...More
