We went to the above hotel for High Tea on arrival we asked the reception staff who were very polite,attentive and directed us to the appropriate restaurant which had a very colonial and posh feel.
We did ask before ordering if we were late at 4.30pm but we were assured that all food would be fresh.
The waiter advised us the food aspect is standard the only choice we had was a selection of tea's which we selected from a comprehensive list and ordered.
The High Tea arrived almost immediately with all the tea making paraphernalia the food presentation was good,however the sandwiches provide were dried and begging to curl the cakes were dry and over bleached.
So NOT FRESHLY prepared certainly not worth the money most annoying we did ask before ordering if the food would be freshly made to which the answer was a YES Sir.
