After a rain soaked walk from the museum of Natural History we dropped in on this tea shop ( based on Trip Advisor recommendations). Obviously very popular because we hadn't booked and faced a 25 minute wait, albeit in a seated area with reading material. Worth the wait though:
- polite and enthusiatic staff proving quick, efficient and attentive service
- nice ambience with plenty of space
- had the afternoon tea for two. Some of the best sandwiches and scones I have eaten. Scones were massive. With 2 really well filled sandwiches, 3 scones, 6 cookies and a chocolate mousse, all to be washed down with two pots of tea (each tea pot delivering 5 cups), we were defeated with 2 scones and most of the cookies left!
- These were happily boxed for us to take away and the waitress even provided an additional scone
Our opinion was it beat Claridges in London
