This is the second time we had been for Afternoon Tea - the first time was a lovely experience, we sat in the foyer area and the food was excellent. So we decided to do it again,but what a disappointment. We were shown into a "dedicated area", a very bland room - no frills whatsoever. No decoration anywhere - not even a picture on the wall. Two other tables were occupied but it was so quiet in the room everyone was whispering - a bit of background music would have given it a bit more atmosphere. The food arrived - the sandwiches were very basic, sliced bread cut into strips with bland fillings, a tiny bowl of crisps and the same size bowl with salad. The scone and cakes were really nice but were spoilt by the "mushy" strawberries. No nice coffee pot this time - replaced with a "conference room" stainless pot. Couldn't wait to get out really it was so disappointing. The point was made earlier about what to expect for £13 - the cost should have been £25 and that is what this afternoon should have been based on and not what we were given. This was a pre Christmas treat for my husband which sadly went wrong. On a happier note - the staff were still very friendly and polite.
