We had afternoon tea at the Royal Crescent last month and, although enjoyable, it really could have been a lot better. It was a glorious day so we were happy to be shown to a table in the garden, but I then had to take chair cushions from a neighbouring table as several missing from ours. There were also a number of uncleared tables in the garden which was not attractive. The tea, at £25.00, was adequate but no more - unimaginative sandwiches and very over sweet cakes - scones and Bath buns however were top notch. Had to ask twice for refills of tea and for a jug of iced water. The whole thing felt very perfunctory and I would not recommend or re-visit.

Afternoon tea with two of my friends. What a joy! The whole setting of the hotel is beautiful and so refined. We were taken through the enclosed garden to a lovely room in another building. Ordered our afternoon tea and when it arrived we were not disappointed. The presentation was stunning, and the food was delicious. We were offered more sandwiches, tea and coffee was constantly topped up, but the waiting staff were not constantly pestering us, we sat for the best part of two hours as we worked our way through the delights. All the cakes were so delicate and, oh the taste!! £25 well spent, add a glass of bubbles for £35, and you will have a perfect combination.
