Visited here for afternoon tea and was thoroughly blown away with the choice offered. Varying textures, flavours were on offer. An amuse bouche of gazpacho started off proceedings. This was followed by a collection of savoury items which were lovely and very tasty. After this was the sweet collection and it must be said the pastry chef worked wonders with some absolutely amazing flavour combinations. This was followed by the sweet trolley and once again a collection of tempting offerings were available. We tried the petit fours which were divine. The experience was finished by a small strawberry ice cream cornet. Throughout the afternoon the service was first class and could not be faulted. There was copious amounts of tea and coffee on offer throughout. The price for the afternoon tea is £27 per head and this can be upgraded to a champagne afternoon tea for £42 per head. We would recommend you visit here at least once.
