Four of us armed with our TravelZoo vouchers, £8.75 each for four booked together, visited Mellington for afternoon tea. The exterior of the hotel was impressive. Inside it was rather gloomy, and we were offered our choice of places to sit, so while the men sought out the loo, we did a quick recce to select a seating area. The hotel had a number of rooms, and we chose a smallish lounge which we shared with another group. (There were obviously a number of voucher holders enjoying their teas) The ladies' loo is upstairs and while looking for it I glanced in a number of bedrooms which looked very inviting with beautiful views. When I returned the tea had been served. We toasted each other and tucked into the very generous tea. There were four different sandwiches for each of us, roast beef, salmon and cream cheese, egg and ham all made from very fresh bread, a huge fruit scone with cream and strawberry jam, a chocolate choux bun each filled with cream, a slice of victoria sponge and a meringue topped with cream and a strawberry. We spent about an hour and a half there, enjoying the food and chatting. We did not see another waitress after our arrival and eventually left having nothing to pay as our vouchers covered it all. We would have liked a chance to enquire about the provenance of the champagne as it lost its bubbles within seconds of being served. The hotel looked a little tired but we had no complaints about our tea. It was an opportunity to discover a hotel in the locality which had been completely unknown to us.
