With a name like Harry Ten Shilling, I was expecting a British afternoon tea with traditional scones, clotted cream and jam. The "scones" were large pieces of cake served with a few fresh blueberries and strawberries on the plate. When asked what these were, we were informed that they were scone cake. I have been to England several times and have never encountered this particular sweet!
The waiter/proprietor? was extremely surly and really made our party feel like he wished we hadn't walked in the door. This was in direct contrast to the experience the two other family members in our party had had with the same gentleman the summer before. When we requested more jam and whipped cream (as the tiny dish would have been appropriate for one not three) our request was granted with a great deal of disdain.
There are lots of places to eat in Stratford. For approximately $42.00 (including tax) for scones and tea for three people, I will definitely take my business to someone who appreciates it, and makes me feel like a welcome customer, rather than a nuisance.
