Bad points: We booked a deal through Afternoon tea.co.uk, which said £17.50 per head, but we were charged £18.50. I had requested a vegetarian, but one of my sandwiches was smoked salmon- most certainly NOT vegetarian. Also one of the desserts was panna cotta which contains gelatin, so again not vegetarian. Service was very relaxed with the servers hardly ever checking on us. Also one friend had mould in her pot of cream, and it took a while for us to find someone to replace it. We were only offered one refill of tea, and the teapots were quite small.
Good points: Comfy seats, relaxed atmosphere. Never did we feel hurried. Scones were tasty, the carrot cake was lovely and the macaroon was good.
We were given a glass of champagne each to make up for the mouldy cream, but as I don't drink it did not make any difference to me.
Overall OK. Don't think I would go again. Seriously would expect a chain like this to understand what "vegetarian" means.
