Went for afternoon tea last weekend, very disappointed as the afternoon tea at Woodlands Park had been recommended to us. When we sat down the table was set, including two champagne glasses. One of the glasses was filthy, surely any half decent place would check small details like this when setting the table.
We ordered afternoon tea for two, again the teapot and cups were not exactly clean, obviously been through a dishwasher but then not checked or wiped when they came out, more small details that I would expect to not be overlooked at a 4 star hotel.
The sandwiches were poorly filled and the bread was dry, my guess was they had been made earlier in the day and then just left on the side to dry out. The scones were the only positive, they were actually really nice, the rest of the cakes were average.
While at £16 per head is at the cheaper end of the price range for hotel afternoon tea I would at least expect clean glasses and crockery and fresh sandwiches so will not be going back.
