We were a party of 11 adults and 3 children. We booked for 11:30 am with a view to an early lunch. The lounge is open, light, airy, sumptuous and beautifully furnished. The gardens are also beautiful.
The food was well made and presented. The high tea was a bit expensive at $55 for a round of sandwiches and selection of sweets but the sansiches were good and the sweets were plentiful and exquisite. The other lunch options were good quality, substantial and good value.
The problem was the long wait. While this meant that we had more time to chat and enjoy the surroundings, it was not part of our pan. Those of us who had ordered champagne as well as tea with our high tea received neither for some time. Some thought could be given to timing and order of course delivery.
