Went to the dorchester for tea with 5 friends yesterday for a catch up.
Overall was a great afternoon but was not overwhelmed by the experience, tea, sandwiches, scones and pastries were average and would not say that they were of great quality to rush back for more!
My friends were offered a choice of tea most had english or earl grey. One comment was it was quite weak others said was ok but not amazing. If we were topping up our cups of tea the tea servers would come to the rescue to pour for us you are not expected to pour your own tea which us commoners dont mind doing!! Was constantly interrupting are gossip catch up therefore! As i am not a tea drinker orange juice was offered instead which was 100% fresh!
With our tea selection of sandwiches was offered cucumber, egg, chicken, salmon and other vegetarian option. We then had a miniature dark chocolate coffee cup with coffee mousse which was nice, then a selection of small pastries and scones were offered and a miniature ice cream which was also nice.
Then out of nowhere the bill arrived and seemed it was time for us to move on!
The server offered for us to take left over pastries home with us.
For £40 each i would recommend it not too bad for an afternoon but i would not be in a rush to go back next week.
