Afternoon tea enthusiasts have not been slow to review the Samovar Lounge on TripAdvisor:
‘Best fresh sandwiches, scones and cakes we have ever had for afternoon tea. Much better than a five star we tried in Glasgow and Edinburgh. The presentation, freshness and price were excellent. Staff very friendly…’
‘A great relaxing day. Took my sister here for a leisure day and afternoon tea. From start to finish we were given great and friendly service… afternoon tea was lovely, would definitely recommend it.’
