We had afternoon tea booked following a tour as an anniversary treat. We arrived on time and were told that someone would be with us immediately to take our order. We waited over 25 minutes before anyone approached us. After this we were served. It was a set tea but we were not offered any extra sandwiches. The sandwiches were very small but tasty. There was a scone each but no choice of plain or fruit. I don’t like fruit scones so had to pick the fruit out. The cakes were good and the millionaire shots were very nice.
The crockery and tea service was stylish and the view was nice but service poor. We were overcharged for our champagne and wine but this was because the menu we were given was a year out of date so the prices had changed. They were not very friendly about it and there was no apology and they just expected to pay the new prices. We didn’t pay the new price because of their attitude and this did not go down well and he expressed his opinion quite loudly which was embarrassing.
It was fine as a way of finishing off the tour but there are better places to have afternoon tea if that is what you are looking after
