My friend and I meet for a 'catch up' and afternoon tea at Beechfield House. The approach, gardens and entrance to the hotel are very impressive. We were shown to a preset table in the morning room and very quickly served with our tea. We had pre ordered 1 x full afternoon tea and 1 x cream tea. The two teas has been combined and very elegantly presented on a 3 tiered cake stand which was lovely as we were sharing. The selection of finger sandwiches were excellent and the warm scones were sublime-very fresh and light. The full tea came with a selection of 4 bite size cakes,they were excellent but very tiny- it would have been nicer to have one larger slice of cake and maybe just 1 or 2 of the 'taster' cakes.
At some similar establishments a full afternoon tea is to much for one person hence us sharing. However the Beechfield House full afternoon tea with its very light scone and bite size cakes is easy for one lady to eat.
The restaurant menu is displayed at the entrance - it looks excellent and reasonably priced. I live locally so will definitely be back.
Well done Beechfield.
