We are on a mission to personally eat our way through every afternoon tea in every hotel in the country!
So far the Black Swan is in our opinion second only to The Dorchester, but considering the huge price difference, it may just sneak first place for overall marks.
We reserved a table and were given a lovely window table. The staff were friendly, courteous and very efficient and couldn't do enough for us. The sandwiches were quintessentially English, egg, salmon, cheese etc. then there were two scones each with cream and jam, followed by their grand finale, five glorious, individual, luscious, beautiful, tasty, to die for cakes!
There was a wonderful collection of teas and coffees and all this for £17.95 each, bargain!
