My friend and I booked afternoon tea this weekend in St Andrews. I have to say it was a total rip off. The price was £18.95 which sounds reasonable, but not for what we received. Very manufactured food. The worst aspect was the 'DIY' tea!!! You get a tea bag and hot water! Not nice. Also we asked for two glasses of champagne to accompany our tea - at a whopping cost of £20 per 175ml glass!!! The hotel itself is very American-mall style. Over spacious with no character and the pub part where afternoon tea is offered is very very claustrophobic. So we ate in the hall area near the staircase which was better but obviously had a flow of people coming in and out. Afterwards we went to the spa which is hideously overpriced. Totally not worth it.
