This was a 50th birthday treat for my London pal, a previous work colleague. It was a miserable, rainy day but the weather was forgotten on coming into the hotel.
A slight disappointment with the crockery (I was expecting fine china but got functional white crockery) Sandwiches were lovely- some veggie (for my pal) and our young waitress was lovely. When my friend asked if the pretty cakes were gelatine free the waitress came back with some suitable ones to eat with the others.
I would have been happier with being given a choice of tea but I didn't ask.
We sat in the lobby on leather chesterfields and felt the atmosphere was very unstuffy. Loos were lovely & clean but we had to raise our voices when a member of staff decided to hoover up in an adjacent area- my pal was about to complain!
I had made a booking via internet on days-out website but no record was found. However our unflappable waitress sorted it out for us and did not charge for my 12yr old son though we did say he would share our food from the outset.
I would have an afternoon tea here again.
