Afternoon tea was very nice. Lovely selection of finger sandwiches, scones and dessert tray. All served with quality Twinings tea. The area where tea is served is very nice and relaxing.
Three delicious courses. We had a goats cheese starter and crab mayo starter. Goats cheese was nice. The crab was nice too, however the mixed crab tasted better without the additional sauce that was served with it.
For mains we had lamb and chicken. The lamb was served pink which I've never had before as I'm a bit cautious about making sure my meat is cooked. However, when the lamb was served it was delicious. Sliced easily and went down beautifully. Served with beans and potato and gravy, all the flavours combined beautifully. The chicken dish was also cooked to perfection. The chicken was extremely succulent and again went well with the mushrooms, spinach, potato and gravy it was served with. The combination of flavours was very good.
For dessert we chose the strawberry sundae and chocolate fondant. One of the best sundaes I've ever had. Can't put my finger on it but however they constructed the sundae it worked. The chocolate fondant was excellent. Lightly crispy on the outside and warm and gooey when you broke it open. Served with delicious ice cream.
As the meal was for a birthday, the staff also made a nice truffle tray with happy birthday written in chocolate.
All in all a fantastic romantic experience. The ambiance of the restaurant is lovely and the staff attentive and friendly. Would definitely visit again for both afternoon tea and evening meal.
