I have been to the Merchant for afternoon tea last year, and had a quite good experience.
Yesterday we had booked the festive tea - waste of money, and not at all festive. Live music for about 15 mins, then just canned music. Service was dreadful, first of all they forgot the milk, then they gave us a pot of water, instead of tea, and we had to ask for another pot. There were no festive decorations, which you would expect in an expensive hotel, just a tree in the corner. We had a few finger sandwiches, when they asked did we want any more, we got another four very small sandwiches, but had to pay extra for them. The service was terrible, no festive cheer, and I would not advise anyone to waste their money going there. It was dull and cheerless. The Chinese restaurant was more festive. Will never be going back.
