I have just returned from the most lovely Afternoon Tea at The Cumberland in celebration of my dear old mum's 85th birthday.
We had booked a table for the five of us right at the front of the hotel overlooking the sea and within minutes of being seated we were asked for our choice of either tea or coffee. This was soon on the table which had already been set out with a lovely "Poppy" tea service. We did not have to wait long before the most wonderful range of fresh sandwiches, cakes and scones was delivered. Everything was so tasty and so moist. These were then followed by lovely sweet strawberries and a glass of bubbly.
The waiting staff were extremely attentive throughout the whole of the meal and were more than willing to bring us a second pot of lovely fresh tea and coffee.
I cannot recommend this experience highly enough. Well done The Cumberland!
Will certainly be returning soon.
