Enjoyed a wonderful afternoon in the grounds and on a tour of the house. I visited the stables, gift shop and outbuildings. I was not expecting a filthy tea room. Nine tables piled high with uneaten food debris, plates stacked up and tables which were filthy. Food is limited, no soft drinks i.e cola but plenty of odd flavoured drinks, sandwiches were limited and serving worktops filthy. I watched a customer poke her finger into the cake on display take a chunk and eat before selecting another cake instead. Hygiene and cleaning are not priority here although there are ample staff milling around. Take a packed lunch and avoid this hell hole.
