Booked afternoon tea for our anniversary. It was really nice and all the crew were friendly and helpful. We were lucky the sun was shining but it wouldn’t have been spoilt if it had rained. Food excellent. Bar prices reasonable. We met a lovely couple from Hull and enjoyed the experience together with chat and laughter . Perfect day.
