    Cranachan

    Went to the restaurant for afternoon tea with my friend to celebrate her recent wedding in Vegas we booked through 5pm for the afternoon tea and added the pink fizz for the extra £1, really good value for money. We loved the cakes and scones and loved that we could pick what sandwich we would like as we both hate fish and normally you always get a fish selection with afternoon tea. Will defo be back.

    Lovely afternoon tea

    Very accommodating as a person was added to a large party last minute. Also dealt with a person who was vegetarian and lactose intolerant quickly and double checked everything. Everything was delicious and plenty of food for everyone. Great deal that we would use again.
