I was given an Groupon afternoon high tea for my birthday and I took my friend along. There was no china in sight and the silver coloured teapot had seen better days. After a half hour wait, the barman brought out 4 scones with cream/jam and told us to enjoy!!
I had to chase after him to ask him where the sandwiches, cakes and champagne were?? - not good.
He then brought out the scimpiest plates of sandwiches and cakes I have seen in an afternoon tea. We were at a loss as to how 9 triangles shared equally between two people. The fillings were disappointing; cheap cheese, cheap ham and a weird tuna and spring onion mixture?? The bread was also cheap.
The cakes amounted to no more than a 'Mr Kiplings' carrot cake slice and a chocolate slice cut in half (half each) and we had to share a cheap cherry bakewell!!
The 'champagne' was flat, sweet and probably Lambrini or some such like cheap alcohol.
The only saving grace with this was that it was at least clotted cream.
I took a colleague along as a treat and have to say I was embarrassed. I wouldn't go there again. We were also going to suss the place out as a conference venue as our business holds regular seminars, but given the cheap rubbish we received, I wouldn't touch it or recommend it.
