    Lovely Sunday afternoon tea!

    Had an afternoon tea with some friends. The view is lovely and a spot in town that I wasn't aware of. Food was lovely and unlimited tea and coffee meant we Sat for almost 3.5hrs. It was quite quiet so I expect On other days you wouldn't be able to stay as long.
