My chosen life partner and i,with the rents in tow decided to try The Roslin. Its billed as the best afternoon tea in Southend...from our local knowledge there is not much competition! We have tried all the top hotels in London,so we thought something closer to home would be a nice change.
The Roslin ticks most of the boxes for a traditional afternoon tea,but fails on the attentive service,and most importantly the offer of extra rounds of sandwiches and cakes. I cannot believe that any hotel who charges from £15 upwards ea for afternoon tea,would lose profit by offering another round...probably most patrons would decline anyway,so even more annoying for not doing so. It seems only the hotels in London do this, about time the burbs followed suit.
The surroundings are pleasant enough, and the food adequate but not the most challenging we have encountered.
