I booked this as a surprise for my sisters 50th birthday. I will start by saying that the food was lovely, and the sandwiches were freshly made. Unfortunately, we had to wait over half an hour for the food to be brought to us (you only get the table for 90 mins). The waitress was a bit abrupt when we asked about it, it would have been nice to be told when we arrived that there would be a delay. There were 11 of us and we got a plate of finger sandwiches which equated to 2 or 3 each, not enough for one of each filling per person. A big part of afternoon tea is scone, jam and cream but we only got 10 scones for 11 of us. We got 2 very small pots of cream and jam between 11 of us. When we asked for more we got some large pots of jam and cream. We very nicely explained to the waitress our disappointment at the portions and were given another plate of scones and cakes, the cakes were delicious. There was plenty tea and this was very nice. We were by no means trying to be greedy but felt that a bit of thought should have been put into the portions for a large number of people. Although we were disappointed, especially as it was a special occasion, I would still recommend the afternoon tea here.
