My sister two friends and I went to The Ritz on Saturday for afternoon tea to celebrate my friends birthday. We arrived to the gorgeous lounge area and were looked after so well by the lovely receptionist/waitress. We started our celebration with cocktails which were amazing.
We then were seated for our Afternoon tea. The decor and tea area was spectacular, and served champagne, delicious. We were served an array of teas in the solid silver tea pots. Finger sandwiches of six different kinds, replenished regularly. The most amazing petite cakes and scones that were to die for served with preserves and clotted cream. Then we had a choice of further cakes. During our tea a pianist and orchestra played gently the whole time. We had ordered a celebration cake for our friend who's 60th birthday it was. This was presented with candle etc while the pianist played Happy birthday. A day thatwe will all remember. If you want to spoil someone this is it.
