I organised a hen do/birthday event for my best friend last weekend and had arranged to have a cream tea lunch at the Fourteas. Their communication beforehand had been excellent and they had provided us with the Spitfire Room upstairs to give us some privacy and space. This was all decked out in union jack bunting and paper chains and looked ever so festive. Our waitress Michelle was absolutely lovely and saw to our every whim (she must have been run ragged but remained cheery, smiley and breezy the entire time).
We all had the Ivor Novello cream tea and the sandwiches and cakes were absolutely gorgeous and presented beautifully. Washed down with a delicious glass of prosecco and gallons of tea. It was a really nice touch that the whole Fourteas team came upstairs to sing happy birthday to my friend and present her with a little cake and a candle!
We also really enjoyed dressing up in the wartime hats and costumes, and posing by the anderson shelter in the back garden. It's the attention to detail that makes this place such a find - even when we had some leftovers, they were boxed up in a little gas mask box with string to wear over your shoulder!
If I come back to Stratford - and I'm sure I will - this will be one of the first places I stop off at on arrival.
Well done on an excellent business, and thank you all to your wonderful staff.
