thirteen of us went for afternoon tea here using a travelzoo voucher. this was two teas for £25. As they usually charge £25 per head, we thought this was a very good deal.
The first impression that the restaurant gives is a good one, but on closer inspection you see that it is just that, an impression.
the cups and saucers are melamine, not china, and you are offered tea or coffee, no choice of tea, strange considering they have a whole display or different tea on show!!
Now on to the tea itself. where do i begin?
Whte bread was stale, sandwiches had been madw well in advance and obviously refridgerated and were still hard and icy cold. The cakes were all stale and obviously bought in, but the bigest insult was the piece of stilton cheese for two. Not only was it the smallet triangle ever, it was old and dry. We were supposed to have chocolate coins and truffles. None!!! Also mulled wine figs, this was a sliver of a fig and a piece of cinnamon stick.
This has to be the worst Afternoon Tea I have experienced. Do yourself a favour, pay another £4 and go to Harrods. By far the best tea in London.More
