We stopped in The Dial house for Champagne afternoon Tea during mid week as it was a good half way point on our journey south. The hotel has such a cozy feel and as we walked in the fire was roaring and we were greeted to a very warm welcome. The house champagne by the glass is very good and started the afternoon off nicely. We sat in the restaurant to enjoy Tea which was served promptly. When our stand of "goodies" arrived I knew then there was no way we were going to manage to eat it all! The stand it's self was really smart and modern and matched the style of the restaurant and hotel well. We had a good selection of sandwich's with different fillings and lovely fresh bread. (The amount of times Iv had dry Afternoon Tea sandwiches with hard edges is ridiculous, a little thing but so important.) Next the scones. They were huge and served warm just how they should be, we had a classic and fruit scone each with proper clotted cream and jam. Lastly was the fantastic choose of cakes on the top tier. It was so nice to see some thing different than the classic Afternoon tea pastries, along with a couple of macaroons which is always a winner. We had a fantastic experience and it was finished of nicely with a glass of wine and a game of cards in the bar before heading on our way. A massive thank you to Ali and his team who looked after us so well and now we have found this gem we plan on stopping for the night in the near future.
