    Lovely food but place was empty. Which was odd on a bank holiday Monday. Staff was great and couldn't fault anything but would of been nice to have other customers there.

    Alder Café Bar was very good. My issue is with OpenTable. When I clicked on Afternoon Tea to book, I was directed to the calendar and made my booking in the usual way. However upon arriving at Alder Café I was told that the table was for a table only, not Afternoon Tea. Imaging my disappointment for me and my friend. So for anybody booking I would advise to phone the Café and not use OpenTable.

    I ordered gluten-free vegetarian, Express menu option, a week before the booking date, on the Open table booking app. I got the saddest looking toasted dry white-bread with a lump of cheap cheddar cheese semi-melted into it. The soup was full of pepper and made us cough. Special diet requirements people should go elsewhere to eat.

    The decor is nice and the staff were friendly. We dined here on two consecutive nights and found the wait for food to be quite slow and when it did arrive it wasn’t hot.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Food fab and nice gap between courses. Lovely Spanish red wine so nice had to go for a second bottle. It was my birthday and I was given a lovely slice of cheesecake with a happy birthday message on the plate- lovely touch. Definitely visit again.

    The afternoon tea was not of a good standard. The sandwich’s were appalling they were hard on outside and very badly made with not what it said on the menu on them eg salmon etc not as described, all the sandwiches only had slaps of butter on the bread sloppy application ! Which had half crusts on, an attempt was made to cut the crusts off but this was not done properly, stale bulky bread awful display and unappetising. Very disappointing for 117 euro !!! This is on the menu Lemon - Herbs Chicken Finger Sandwich on White Bread (1c,4,7) Roasted Ham, Dubliner Cheese, Wholegrain Mustard Aioli on White Bread 1c,4,12; Smoked Salmon, Lemon Dill Cream Cheese, Pickled Cucumber on Guinness B

    Food was so good staff very friendly and welcoming. Waiting staff couldn't do enough for you very polite and helpful. Only thing I would say is not much of an atmosphere in there like there use to be in the old place.
