Any High Tea that I've had has always been a selection of dainty sandwiches, hot finger food, petit fours and other assorted small cakes, usually served in elegant surroundings. It was with this in mind that my wife and I booked in for a High Tea. How wrong were we. High Team consisted of a full main course meal (which we both agreed was lovely), followed by a 3 tiered platter of what was really stale left cake - some slices of cherry cake, 2 lurid pink lamingtons and some other stale cake slices. It was like instead of having main course followed by a desert, this was a main course followed by cakes ! ! ! Instead of elegant surroundings we were seated in the bar area with the large screen TV showing the then current World Cup football match. Unless its changed very much in the last month, I would strongly recommend against having their High Tea - unless of course you enjoy having stale cakes after your main course.
A truly terrible and disappointing meal and overall experience
