Following a superb morning in London, watching the Trooping of the Colour, we made our way to The Milton Restaurant, Cantley Hotel, Wokingham (only 3/4hour drive). We wanted to finish the day in style.... afternoon tea and a glass of fizz - a suitably English tradition.....
We arrived and were greeted in a friendly manner and were given a choice of table or easy lounge type area. A sufficient time was given for us to peruse the menu - either a set afternoon tea or we could have composed our own to suit any type of dietary requirements.
The fizz arrived and we made our loyal toast - 'long may she reign over us'
Three sandwiches were presented on a slate platter (initially I thought - only three sandwiches...) However, they were not small... smoked salmon, beef and cheese and tomato - delicious.
Next came the cake stand - the lightest fruit scone I have ever tasted, accompanied by clotted cream and jam (in a jar - home made would have been better). On the top tier - a tiny light lemon drizzle cake, a huge profiterole and the most 'short' shortbread. All seemed to be home made rather than mass produced items that you may get in other establishments..
We were given the choice of many teas and coffees - again refills were offered as required.
Service was attentive but not intrusive.
The restaurant was busy but not noisy or distracting as we studied our photographs - including a group of ladies celebrating a forth- coming wedding and a family with a small child.
A suitable afternoon for all ages and occasions.
