Unfortunately I cannot write a review Although we booked well in advance for Saturday at 10.00 am, and received an email confirming our booking, when we arrived we were told that there was no record of us having booked and no tables available as the place was full due to a wedding party.
I've been asked to write a review for the breakfast, however, when we arrived at the School House there was a notice to say that meals were to be served in The Apple Inn instead without further explanation so unfortunately I can't give a review. We were booked in for afternoon tea too as part of our spa package and had to make our own enquiries about where that would be taken which again was in the Apple Inn. Slightly disappointed with that as there were no scones and wasn't served on traditional afternoon tea platters, a small detail I know but that's what makes it feel special
Lunch time catch up with friends, lovely decor, staff really friendly. I had cheese and tuna melt, one of the best I have tasted. Good portion and no rush to vacate the table.
The School House is a lovely cosy spot for breakfast with super friendly staff - we loved the play corner for kids.
This is our second time visiting (the first being 2 years ago). However, we were left a bit disappointed this time round at the food. The pancakes served to my daughter and I were extremely dry (crispy on the outside too? Maybe reheated by frying?). I was also amazed to see my portion (2 small pancakes) was the same size as my daughters kids version despite being double the price. There was a tiny amount of fruit and honey on top. For £9 this was really terrible value. I would have asked for more honey to help with how dry they were but the only staff member serving was run off her feet and we’d already had to get her attention to ask where my husbands hash browns and beans were (left off a £15 breakfast!!). Comparing it to the generous portion my daughter got of fresh cooked pancakes filled with fruit and ice cream 2 years previous we were super disappointed. My daughter had to cover hers in butter to make them edible.
I should say my husbands cooked breakfast despite being expensive was well cooked and tasty. Maybe it’s just the pancakes (and slow service) that needs improving. Sadly it’s put us off coming back - we don’t mind paying those prices if the food is great but it just wasn’t.
Staff amazing, food fantastic but marred by lack of staff, we had to wait 45 mins till food was served
Brilliant breakfast. The staff were so welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend.
