The restaurant was light & airy, lovely fresh afternoon tea, our server was attentive, showed us the choice of hot drinks available, I had earl grey & my friend opted for coffee and checked we were happy with the afternoon tea that was on the menu. Very pleasant afternoon nice and relaxed, would definitely recommend.

The tea was well presented on a three tier cake stand and there was plenty to eat for the two of us. We were offered a choice of tea and also given a glass of proscesco. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. We had enough time to eat and chat and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Sandwiches and cakes tasted quite hard and stale as though they had probably been on the stand for a while and prepared much earlier in the day . Had your pay extra fir more tea which I was unhappy with as tea pot and cups were small. Disappointed that it wasn't quite up to the standard I expected as it was birthday treat for my friend.

Food is okay. Don't expect too much for a restaurant in the museum.

The only reason I would not recommended this place is how hot it was. It was uncomfortably humid and it did impact on our enjoyment of the experience.
