Arrived early and were given a window table in The Library at 2pm. We had booked or 2.30 so quite nice to be offered a table earlier.
Beautiful building full of beautiful woods. It must have been very grand in its heyday. Thought it was close to Waterloo Station so had to ask a passer-by where it was.
The staff in The Library were very attentive and polite. Nothing was too much trouble. More sandwiches offered and a change of teapot with hot tea.. The sandwiches were very nice but not too keen on cream cheese and chive spread for a scone. The other scone was orange crust but it didn't taste any different that a plain scone. Cakes 'bite' size and very pretty. We were meant to have champagne but think it was CAVA, but quite drinkable.
Now the 'downside' - we requested a window table, which we got, but was not aware that construction work was taking place. There was scaffolding around the window, scaffold boards in place and green netting spoiling our view. This was very disappointing as that was why we choose County Hall. We also had the occasional builder walk pass. If you are going for a nice river view you need to check out the building works. We would not have gone at this time had we known. I rang and re-confirmed our booking a couple of days before and think I should have been told about the works.
