Spent a lovely afternoon with friends having Afternoon Tea as the result of winning this at a localBusiness event.
We arrived and parked in the top car park enabling us to walk through the well manicured Gardens into the Hotel, it was a little windy and overcast otherwise we would have had Tea outside.
Very comfortably seated by what would be In kthe winter a magnificent log fire, the table was set for the four of us and the seats extremely comfortable although sometimes a bit difficult to reach the table from their comfort!
Service was impeccable, we were given theMenu and had to choose which loose Tea we would like, it was then explained that the Sandwiches and cakes would come first ,the scones which freshly cooked to be kept warm would be served later with some more fresh Tea. We were then given a little 'taster' of Panacotta with peach preserve which was in a shot glass and tasted lovely and refreshing a nice touch we thought.
Sandwiches arrived were deliciously fresh, Ham and Mustard, Egg and Cress, Smoked Salmon and Cucumber, served on both white and brown finger sliced bread. cakes were a Marshmallow white chocolate cake, a chocolate eclair and the most delicious lemon tart I have ever tasted!
As promised more Fresh Tea also arrived with the fruit and plain scones, black currant preserve and clotted cream. Service again was top notch, we asked for extra clotted cream which was not not a problem. Overall can thoroughly recommend this Hotel. It was a popular place too with guests arriving and more people coming for tea all seemed to be enjoying the treats!
