My Husband and I had a marvelous afternoon tea at the Howard last Friday. When I booked I was most impressed to find that they remembered that we had visited previously. The butler service is a real treat and nothing is too much trouble. When I enquired if they still had the lemon curd for the clotted cream scones the butler insisted that he fetch me some although we already had a selection of 3 home made jams which would have been perfectly adequate.
Excellent selection of leaf teas to choose from which included 'first flush' varieties which really complemented the experience.
Imaginative sandwich fillings and light and fluffy scones to die for. After doing the circuit of 'afternoon teas' on offer at similar 5 star establishments The Howard is in a class of its own.
We will be back!More
