Nice novelty, bright. Food nice but I’ve had better afternoon teas for half the price. Not worth the Groupon price and defo not their website price.

Had a brilliant time, staff very friendly and good banter. We were at top deck at front which was great. Going to book the Glasgow one for another treat.

Booked with a Groupon voucher, great value. Just phoned to reserve our space on the bus. 3pm 12th December. After hearing reports from friends we can't wait to go. (One thing I will say when booking is you actually get to speak to a person, nothing worse than booking everything online, makes the experience far more personal.) Will update my comment after our trip. 😁🥳
