We're super excited to announce that they have re-opened in an all new avatar as The Queen's Deck. The restaurant and tea cafe serves teas from their very own tea gardens in Darjeeling from the Goodricke Estate - including a selection of fine first flushes. The menu is continental all the way through and they've also got finger foods, sandwiches and snacks to pair with your cuppa.
