The Empress Room is a beautiful, comfortable place to have afternoon tea. The tea service (tea, food, and staff) is wonderful. I really enjoyed the scone (but I would prefer it with clotted cream, not the empress cream they include) and the savory and sweet items were great - including things like a raspberry macaron, a really lovely shortbread cookie, a mini lemon-meringue, a curried chicken sandwich, a smoked salmon sandwich, and so on. I drank the Empress tea, and the waiter gave me a complimentary box of it to take home (this was a nice surprise!). The afternoon tea is definitely pricey, but it's worth it as a treat.
