While the setting is pleasant and the table was nicely set with the vintage china, we did not think it was a great spread as other reviewers did. The sandwiches were fresh and nicely presented with a variety of fillings. There was far too much mustard on the ham filling and a random ( though possibly vintage,cheese and pineapple choice). The scones were nice but after that the baking looked very much shop bought rather than home baked. Fruit brack was something I'd never been served at afternoon tea before and neither of us tried it / like it. Pink French fancies and cut up Mr Kipling slices or similar were a disappointing offering. One other bun I tried that looked home baked was extremely sweet. We left most of the sweet stuff, and although we had seen others leaving with bags ( a nice idea) we didn't want to bring any home. One of the staff kindly followed us out to offer this but we declined. Obviously others have enjoyed it but we would return to other excellent afternoon teas that we have enjoyed elsewhere.
