What customers are saying about our Afternoon Tea

“Came along for the afternoon tea today as a birthday treat for my friend. Absolutely loved it. Served on a little picnic table with lots of delicious sandwiches, scones, cakes and lovely jam and cream. Have had quite a few afternoon teas in Inverness and this was by far the best. Excellent value at £18 for two and served with tea or coffee and excellent service with a smile. Will definitely be back thoroughly enjoyed it!”

“Visited this afternoon for an after Christmas outing. Decided to have the afternoon tea for four and it was a good choice. Personal service began by being shown to a seating area by a very helpful and pleasant waitress who then brought the tea to our table so no queuing as there usually is. Offered refills for the tea and coffee pots which we didn’t need. Lovely cakes and nice variety.”

“Wow,the afternoon tea is sooooo lush, and the waitress was so attentive. Excellent service.”

“Had a fabulous afternoon tea today for my grannies 75th birthday. Fabulous sandwiches and cakes and very friendly service. Thank you.”
