We stopped for afternoon cream tea while visiting the Tate to see the Turned collection. The cafe is self-service, involving standing in line with a tray and dessert or scones to pay and to order beverages. Then there's a second line to collect your drinks....More

A good choice of snacks, the coffee was good and another cafe that serves soya milk for those who don't drink milk. Thank you for that.
