We've been having high tea here for years - lovely ambiance, wonderful selection of teas - but were disappointed this year by the sandwiches - all 3 types of filling were bland not to mention exceptionally thin. One could hardly tell what the fillings were. However the scones were lovely, the tiny... read more

8 ya-ya redhatters celebrated our birthday with high tea. We had reservations arrived on time and were seated. Our seating was doable, but we were placed by a door with people going in and out so it was not ideal (may I add we made reservations a month ahead of time, and stated it was a special occasion). Our server... More

We fancied quick drink and snack and stopped here. The bar area is like a library/drawing room, dark panels, comfy chairs. We ordered coffee and ice wine and a snack of fries. The service was quick and the wine yummy. If you go the bathroom check out the wall art on the way, very nice pictures.

So this is one of those once in a while things, it isn't cheap (40 with cheese), but it keeps the wife happy! Scones an clotted cream were wonderful, salmon sandwiches however were awful! At this price I expected smoked salmon, not tinned. Can't beat the ambiance, and wait staff is attentive.

Most of us had a hamburger which they only make medium well as "that's the law". Mine was actually a cheeseburger with bacon and it was pretty good. Comfortable room but as we were 6 and had to assemble a table out of 2 round tables it was a little odd.

We enjoyed tea at the Prince of Wales. A beautiful setting with a lovely and tasty tea time offering. The lady serving us was delightful and attentive. Unfortunately, the restaurant has a fly problem which really was annoying.

I took my mom to the Prince of Wales hotel for afternoon tea for her birthday. The setting is beautiful, an old-fashioned room, decorated beautifully, with peaceful music, which I thought would be a lovely way to spend a girls afternoon. When we arrived just in time for our reservation, there was only 1 server, Victoria, present who was dealing... More

careful generally attentive service, fixe pris menu offered beautifully presented, interesting menu. A bit too "French" and upscale menu for my taste though.

Food was spectacular (shortbread cookies melted in your mouth), the tea (Heavenly Cream) was so smooth, flavourful and aromatic and the service (Jody) was five stars ... helpful, courteous and a genuine/friendly smile.
