"We will definitely be back"

What a great way to spend a Saturday. Afternoon tea was really good, Prosecco was nice however the gin cocktails were brilliant. Really recommend this for a different way to spend Saturday. We will definitely be back. Thanks to all on board for their attentive service.

"The food was lovely"

We booked the Gin Afternoon Tea as a birthday gift for my mum when we visited Edinburgh. She absolutely loved it. The food was lovely, all fresh and tasty. The Gin cocktails were lovely, a little bit different and a great selection of flavours. It was really memorable and we would definitely recommend.
