Some friends were staying at the hotel to visit friends in Bristol and to celebrate a birthday.
We met for "afternoon tea". It was a shambles to be honest. From ordering to receiving the food was a good 45 minutes or more. The tea arrived within 10 minutes but not the food. We would of had to order more tea and therefore more cost. £17.50 for what you receive is a tad on the steep side. Do not go by the photo that is on the right of thier web page either. Not sanwiches but soggy miniscule open top slop and a thing supposed to be a scone but more like a tea cake to be honest - at least in appearance.
Tea in pots but no additional hot water ???????????????????
I wont even mention the evening meal ! £13.50 for a vegetarian "sausage " roll. Said on the menu strudle - sorry but that was not strudle. It looked like a Greggs sausage roll
Harvey Nicks - £15.50 and much nicer
