I booked afternoon tea to celebrate my birthday, as there was a large group of 12 and it being so close to christmas I wanted to pre-book somewhere and had to pay it all upfront.
Seemed to be some confusions with the booking and emails going back and forth.
We arrived and were in our own separate room away from the main eating area. Atmosphere lacking. 2round tables set up at either side of the room, they obviously hadn't thought we'd come out as a group for a reason! We pushed the tables together.
Given our champagne but 2 glasses missing so had to call them back (which wasn't easy as we were in a separate room).
Asked them if they could play some music through due to lack of atmos which didn't happen.
Requested highchairs for 2 children when booking and day before and it stated on booking form but we had to ask them and 15 mins later they arrived.
Afternoon tea I could have done better myself in 5 minutes flat. The 'sweet treats' was just carrot cake. The 'selection on finger sandwiches' were very basic and lacked any desire. Scones were nice.
Tea and coffee came in big canisters, no little tea pots and no service whatsoever. All the food and drink was just left on a table in the corner.
£180 I expected a little more-just a few changes and the experience would have been a lot better. Its not rocket science.
I don't recommend going here for afternoon tea and if that reflects on anything else in the hotel I wouldn't bother.
