I had the cheese but the girls had a selection of deserts and as I tried some... More

We arrived for our afternoon tea with high expectations after hearing extremely good reviews from others. The setting is amazing and the gardens are very pretty and you are welcome to stroll around them plus there are plenty of seats both in the sun and shade.

My children decided to give my wife afternoon tea at Summer Lodge as a birthday present, she was not disappointed. Tea begins in a drawing room with reserved coffee tables. You are then given a menu with a choice of teas. These are then served by a highly efficient " French ?" waiter. No attention to detail is too small.... More
