"Met with friends for drinks, followed by an afternoon tea, as a special birthday treat. Relaxed on the terrace in peaceful surroundings. All the staff were cheerful and very helpful. Made a lovely fuss of our little dog. We thoroughly enjoyed a choice of sandwiches, delicious scones, jam and clotted cream and a fabulous selection of mini cakes. Thankyou so much to all the team."
