My children decided to take my wife for her Birthday Treat.... an afternoon tea at Summer Lodge.
It certainly turned out to be a wonderful present.
You arrive and are shown into a beautiful lounge with reserved tables. The menu is presented with a large selection of various tea's to choose from, they are then served in the traditional way with a tea strainer and extra hot water.
Shortly after this a three tier cake stand arrives with fresh scones, clotted cream and strawberry "marmalade" on the top layer. Various home made cakes on the second layer and sandwiches on the the bottom layer. Our party made the mistake of asking for some more sandwiches which shortly arrived... a big mistake as they then could not manage their cakes.... a problem which was easily resolved by the arrival of a take away box.
Initially you might think that Summer Lodge is rather expensive..... but perfect unobtrusive service and beautiful home made food are excellent value
