We were fortunate to be invited here for a friend's wedding, and had a wonderful time during the celebrations. I asked if gluten free food could be provided - it was to be afternoon tea, followed by pizza in the evening. They did me proud, with my own selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes, and later a roll-based pizza pair to go with delicious salads. Appreciated the vintage, mismatched china, and the service was excellent. Our only grumble would be that the gravel path back to the event car park was largely unlit, so it felt like a bit of an adventure. It was a delightful wedding and a lovely day.

We had an afternoon tea yesterday for my Mum's birthday and it was absolutely brilliant. There were about 30 of us and the food was brilliant and the staff were absolutely excellent. It is set in beautiful grounds and would be the ideal place to have a wedding. Could not fault it

Celebration of friends life on 6th July. Although overflow parking not well signed - not a real issue - venue lovely.

Cups very badly tea stained - was surprised at how such a well run venue could put out cups that are so badly stained - not just one or two either.

Can I suggest that even with fine china (which some of the cups were), they need either a proper wash on inside, or can go in dishwasher each time - mine do and are absolutely OK .

Please be assured however that this didn't spoil our afternoon - and thank you for lovely venue.
