First impression - the room was crowded and the tables put together for our party were not of the same height.
A good variety of teas was offered (but made with tea bags). The sandwiches were made from too thick sliced bread for tea-time fare and the white bread wasn't very good. The fillings were sparse and uninspired, there were 4 varieties. The scones were over-baked and most had collapsed instead of risen evenly. I didn't find a strawberry in my jam! My expectations of "afternoon tea" were not met.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This magnificent town-house hotel, set in five acres of beautiful English country gardens with lake, is remarkably close to the city centre. The Newling Ward family converted the 500 year-old building in 1965 and continue to own and run the hotel. The 30 bedrooms are individually styled, with many overlooking the lake and gardens, and the award-winning orangery style restaurant shares the same views. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, bar snacks, cream teas and dinner served in a choice of dining areas. ... more less
