Went to Priory Bay for afternoon tea and wish we had not bothered. The pot of tea (no hot water supplied to top up) was brought 20 minutes before the food. By then the tea had gone and I had to go and request some hot water.
The food was dumped unceremoniously on the table with no explanation on what anything was and we did not see any member of staff again. No one bothered to come and see if everything was okay or even if we wanted anything.
The cucumber sandwich (don't know where the juniper mentioned on the menu was) was awful - no flavour at all. Salmon sandwich was okay.
Scones were alright but did not really have a great deal of flavour.
There was a slice of some sort of cake with some spread on it but I could not identify what it was as again it lacked any sort of flavour. There was a glass with chocolate mouse in the top with something at the bottom but I could not detect what it was. The individual victoria sandwiches were okay but the shortbread again lacked flavour. There were cubes of some jelly but I could not tell you the flavour.
All in all, I was very shocked at how bad the tea was and how bad the service was.
Will not be going again. It's a shame as I have tasted a wide range of afternoon teas in places such as the Ritz in London and this is probably the 2nd worse one I have ever had!
