I took my mum as a treat as she has been quite unwell, to the Mansion Bar & Parlour it is very near to Earls Court Station which was handy.
We were greeted by a lovely waitress who took us to our table and gave us our menu, she did ask if the table was ok - as she could see I was looking around for another. It was a table on its own no cloth like all the others tables that were laid out in crystal like glasses and looked lovely, ours was plain black with black cloth serviette and a gold knife cups and saucers clear thick glass, the table was positioned on it's own, away from the others in a sort of walk through arch..this would of been ok if a stage was not directly behind me being set up and an events company parading through nosily chatting and erecting speakers and such like.
Overall the food was adequate the scones delicious, the tiny circle shape sandwiches not so the bread was quite dry like they had been made an hour before we got there and left, the display/cake stand was very nicely layed out with fresh berries and did look nice - but overall was disappointing the cake pieces were a small piece of carrot cake I would say not homemade and the small bakewell piece also tasted shop brought there was though I must say enough for two people.
The tea was very nice and our cocktail also delicious, although the milk came in a hideous small bottle with a swing top that was not very nice at all.
There were no other diners and we felt shoved out of the way, whilst preparations were under way for the event that was happening that afternoon.
When the waitress came over to see if everything was ok I did say that I was not happy with noise of the surroundings, she very kindly offered us a glass of champagne immediately, we had already had our cocktail each and being the afternoon declined the offer, the waitress call the manager over, who also immediately offered champagne (must be the standard offer).
I did explain we had travelled for over an hour half to get there and she offered her apologies. I feel we should of been offered a full refund.
I left feeling very disappointed.
