My friend and I chose the Cup Tea Lounge as the location for a relaxed catch-up -- and we made a good decision.
The welcome was warm and the venue is nicely furnished. There's a great selection of cocktails and teas to accompany the signature Afternoon Tea -- The Coconut Cream brew is recommended!
We opted for the afternoon tea with a glass of Prosecco. The food arrives quickly and the scones -- baked to order -- arrive a little later but that's fine because it means you pace yourself. The sandwich selection is good -- a smoked salmon & cream cheese bagel, roast chicken brioche and cucumber on white bread. The bagel could be ever-so-slightly warmer and softer but I am really in the realms on nit-picking here!
The scones were lovely and the cream and jam were good too; it's a nice touch to have them served by the baker, complete with hairnet! She, and the other staff, were very attentive and friendly.
A good selection of cakes tops things off and we opted to prolong our stay by getting stuck into the cocktail menu -- the apple and ginger mojito and the cuptorian mojito were both really good and reasonably priced.
We were having such a nice time we didn't realise we stayed beyond closing time, but the staff were very gentle and discreet and weren't in a hurry to throw us out.
Bag one of the comfy sofas in the corner if you can to add to the relaxed vibe.
