Six of us had a lovely time celebrating a friends 50th birthday one Saturday recently. The Palm Court is a stunning setting with a really Colonial feel. The service was excellent. Harpist on the balcony just superb. Sandwiches, scones, cakes then chocolates all washed down with as much tea as we could drink. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because I prefer a better sweet / savoury balance, a little too much sweet for me. Pity also we were refused into the bar for drinks afterwards because although they had tables they were reserved.
