Went for afternoon tea with a groupon voucher on the 30th September, normal value apparently £65, we spent £26. We arrived and were shown to a small area passed empty unlaid tables, it looked like the restaurant area was actually closed when we arrived. My friend had already had a glass of champagne in the bar area while waiting for me and had complained about glasses not being washed correctly, he watched them just rinse a glass under the tap and had to complain, not a good start.
The tea choice was good and on the face of it looking at the menu the tea advertised sounded good but how disappointing when it arrived.
3 strips of poor sandwiches, 1 ham, 1 egg and not sure what the other was. 1 scone each with cream and jam, not sure it was clotted. The cake selection was poor, the type of cakes you would buy from a cheap bakery, certainly none of them looked homemade or very appealing. If I had wanted any extra food a note on the menu said I would have to pay for it!
On a plus side the staff were very friendly and attentive but had I paid full price I would have been making a complaint there and then to the Manager.
There are a lot better teas on offer, even Fortnums only charge £35 per head and serve a fantastic range of homemade cakes and you can have more should you wish at no extra cost.
Based on that, would I go back to the Corys? No!
