I booked afternoon tea at the Red Lion using a Groupon voucher. The experience was pleasant enough but it was such a shame that some of the finer details were lacking. The food itself was good - glass of champagne to start and scones, sandwiches and cakes on the obligatory cake stand. It was just such a shame that we were given saucers rather than plates on which to eat our food and there didn't seem to be any teaspoons available, only desert spoons with which to stir the tea. Minor details perhaps but it is such a shame that given the hotel's location in such a beautiful setting on such a beautiful summer afternoon in a wonderful Oxfordshire town, a little bit more trouble could not be taken to make this a first class experience.
