We recieved a voucher to have afternoon Tea at the balmoral as a wedding gift. This is such a nice gift as it was a whole afternoon experience and was a great thing to do as a couple to spend some time together while being spoiled !
The suroundings of Palm court were lovely and the tables very private.
The afternoon tea itself was very nice & very traditional. First we were brought a stand with finger sandwhiches. These were very nice but not as much thought put into the fillings as there could have been. And if i had one slight issue it is that there is more emphasis put on the sweet treats and less on the savory ( although i dont mind this , there could have been a better balance)
Next we had warm scones (2 each both plain & fruit) with jam and clotted cream. These were absolutly lovely. There was also a plate of small cakes, ie: cheescake and some shortbread. After this the sweet trolly was brought round. This had lots of little Peti four treats, eg turkish delight, edinburgh rock etc and also slices of cake.
Accompanying this we had a choice of a huge range of teas which were made at out table in silver tea pots. We also had these re-filled as many times as we wanted.
All in all highly recommended.
