Chai afternoon tea was amazing. Food and service was impeccable. The hotel is a old school building beautifully restored and original. Dining is in the old school hall. The food was a real treat, flavourful, great variety and tasty. I highly recommend. We had a Groupon voucher and so even better value. Will go again for an evening meal and a walk along the Thames.

Positive: The location cannot be improved upon. Additionally, the history of the building is very interesting. Negative: The staff complained to us more than once. I now know that the housekeeping staff has more than 70 rooms to take care of and I don't know that I needed to know that.
