I was given a voucher for Afternoon tea for two as a birthday present.That was back in May last year and I thought I'd best use it before it expired.
February probably isn't the best time to appreciate the grounds of Coombe Abbey,but it was still a very impressive building.
I had booked my table in January but there was no sign of my reservation on the list.However a table was found for myself and my friend.
I was concerned that the Garden conservatory would be a little chilly this time of year,but it was lovely and cosy.
Quite a few obvious cobwebs everywhere,nothing a flick round with a feather duster couldn't remedy.
We had 3 small sandwiches each,about the width of two fingers,a large scone,jam & cream(would have liked a bit of butter and more cream for two people).A little lemon meringue pie slighty larger than a 50p piece,a bun cut in half,a chocolate sponge cake about 1inch sq.
A nice large pot of tea to wash it all down.
It wasn't quite what I expected but I was full afterwards.I think I hoped for a dainty,more colourful selection of cakes.
Felt a little bit like we were being urged to finish and vacate as once we'd finished our last cake we were given a piece of paper with the code for the exit barrier in the car park.I would have expected this to be given after you'd paid your bill?
As a gift it was much appreciated and enjoyed.I would consider visiting again,but would visit during the spring/summer time.
Staff were pleasant and helpful.
The interior is full of character and history,a pleasant experience overall.
