“Awful afternoon tea...”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

My mum treated 9 of us to an afternoon tea, we had a lovely table. We were greeted by a friendly waitress, who brought over our tea. The sandwiches were made with really thick bread with a tiny spread of filling, do little in fact we could decide what flavour they were. There was a very small selection of cakes, bought in cakes, not home made. There was also a scone each, also bought in. We enquired what teas were on offer, and asked for Breakfast and Earl Grey,we were then presented with tea bags on strings and pots of hot water to make our own! I asked four lemon with my tea and was given a few slices in a glass. All in all not what you would expect from such a hotel. We choose this hotel as my Mum had had a meal there before and enjoyed it. We complained in a letter which was replied to promptly with a part refund and a letter that just made excuses but did confirm that done of the cakes were bought in!
Won't be visiting again... very disappointing
