Cakes, tea and pretty palm trees..
Be prepared to enter the most wonderful winter garden/palm court. When I say beautiful, I mean beautiful with towering palm trees, an elaborate glass roof and a pianist and harpist playing. Not only is the food and service fantastic, I feel like it is on a whole an amazing experience.
We opted for the ‘Chocolate afternoon tea’ which consisted of sandwiches; coronation chicken, cucumber, salmon and egg. The waiters and waitresses will top you up with more sandwiches if you wish. Chocolate scones with jams of your choice and a selection of chocolate cakes. The sandwiches and cakes are all very tasty, particularly the egg sandwiches. I personally couldn’t manage to eat it all but tried a bit of everything, I was in sweet tooth heaven and left feeling very full. You can also choose which tea you would like which also gets regularly topped up, refilled/replaced. When we were first sat down the staff asked if it was a special occasion, they took note and brought over a cupcake and decorated plate which was very sweet and attentive.
The chocolate afternoon tea is £48pp and then we had a few glasses of champagne too, so although it is highly priced it is the perfect location for a special occasion!
