Visited the Oakley Court with a couple of girlfriends for Afternoon Tea last Saturday. We hadn't booked but were able to sit in the beautiful Edwardian Drawing Room with two roaring log fires and views over the lawns to the Thames. The setting was a perfect start to the festive season - could just imagine Father Christmas emerging from one of the chimneys although he might have burned his toes! As the light faded outside the lights festooning the riverbank trees came on and made for a magical, sparkly vista.
The tea itself was magnificent, a generous three tiers each with a good selection of finger sandwiches, fresh fluffy scones and a variety of cakes and fancies. So generous in fact that even though we had skipped lunch and had a good walk in anticipation we still left with doggy boxes for later.
We went for the champagne option and having ordered several extra glasses through the afternoon were surprised at how reasonable to charge was - only £7.50 per extra glass which was cheaper than some second rate pubs!
The service was absolutely charming from the doormen and concierge through to the waiting staff. No one of them could have been more polite or helpful.
All in all a lovely way to while away a weekend afternoon.
