We went for a living social special offer for afternoon tea. The views were very good and the restaurant is reasonably furnished.
The cost was. £11 with the deal full price it was £22 per person.
You expect afternoon tea to have a selection of cakes on a cake stand and a few rounds of sandwiches of a selection of white or brown bread.
Not here. We got one white bread finger. Approx 1/3 round of ham and tomatoe. One finger of egg mayo. One finger of smoked salmon and cream cheese. The menu said turkey but they didn't have any. There were no cakes. Just two of the smallest mince pies I have ever seen, not a lot bigger than a penny in diameter. Also three strawberries and cream made to look like Santas. This was all served together on one plate. A pot of tea or coffee was also included and an alcoholic drink as well. We then asked if we could have some more sandwiches. As the three mouthfuls given were not enough. They said the chef isn't here so they can't make any. A chef to make a sandwich? After some discussion, we got three more fingers. :-0. . The staff said they understand about the value and tried to be helpful to us.
The place could be great but the management is obviously rubbish. They have a good place with views but aren't going to make any money the way things are run.
The ladies toilets have also seen better days. The carpet is shabby and worn anthem doors and fittings are in poor condition.
Was a very disappointing experience for the four of us.
