We (a group of 6 women) came to celebrate our friends significant birthday. We had booked well in advance and arrived to discover that we were not expected. We had to wait whilst the girl re-laid a table for us and told her why we were there and then waited again.... for ages! Eventually she took our order for drinks and teas and coffees duly arrived but then we waited another half an hour at least for the rest until we had to go and find someone to explain that when we said we were there for afternoon tea we did not literally mean "a cup of tea". Eventually the food arrived. It was honestly a joke. It looked as if they had gone out to the local supermarket and then cut in half a selection of 3 poor quality cakes we even had half a meringue! It was very embarrassing for us all. When we complained the person we spoke to said he would speak to the manager but at no time did we actually see the manager in person. We ended up paying half - £7.50 per head - but it really wasn't even worth that. When we said we would not be returning the person we spoke to could not have cared less - his attitude was dreadful. Very disappointing in deed. Do not come here for afternoon tea. There are plenty of far better places in Stratford. Please read my other reviews to know that I am generally not the moaning type!
