Great to be back in the Ballroom but they should be ashamed of their afternoon tea which was cheap and nasty Don"t bother

Visited for a special night last week and loved every second of dancing in that amazing building. However the ambience of the evening was dampened by the horrendous drink offering. Warm bottled beer and one cheap selection of white wine. They would have made a lot more money if the drinks had been nice, next time I'll sneak my own... More
