    The most AMAZING tea I have ever had. The pastry chef is gifted. The presentation, creativity, quantity and taste was incredible. The staff couldn’t have been kinder and there was lots of room.

    Wonderful selection of savouries and pastries- our party of 4 included 2 vegetarians and 1 vegan. A special mention for the service, which was excellent.
