I recently purchased a living social voucher for afternoon tea for 2 at Blakes priced at £9. I chose Blakes because of the reputation for restaurants and such on Grey Street and I wasn't disappointed. Although the price was cheap in comparison to many other afternoon tea deals on such websites, the quality was fantastic and much better than I would have expected for the money I paid! The selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes was excellent and the portion sizes very generous but I might have liked a larger tea pot after a long day of shopping. The service was friendly and fast, I couldn't fault it. The environment was warm and welcoming with a kind of character that starbucks and costa coffee lack.
All in all I can honestly say I would pay full price for the afternoon tea deal! And I wouldn't hesitate to return to Blakes, in fact it will be far higher in my pecking order than the aforementioned popular coffee houses!
