As a regular at Sands Hairdresser next door, have thought for ages that I must give it a go. Decided to treat a friend to afternoon tea the Day after Mothering Sunday, booked for hight tea for two, I was asked if we had any special dietary requirements,
High tea is booked at 1 and half hour intervals 1.30pm, 3pm or 4.30. When we arrived we're greeted and shown to our table, asked if we'd been before, explained the system, you'll get finger sandwiches, scones with strawberry jam and cream, chocolate truffles then you chose two varieties of cake from the display. My friend chose cappuccino as a beverage and I chose Ceylon black tea from the vast selection, the owner asked if I'd tried Ceylon tea before when he brought my tea ( with a timer for the perfect infusion ). Such smiling friendly service! Sandwiches very tasty and all cake moist, scones still warm! Lovely atmosphere but can feel a bit over full and somewhat claustrophobic, a problem of success! My only slight grizzle is that the chairs were solid wood and we're becoming a bit uncomfortable by the end of our visit, there are more comfy easy chairs but of course they're taken quickly. Good value for money,would go again.
