This TripAdvisor reviewer loved their recent afternoon tea experience at Peacock Alley:
‘Fabulous staff and a luxurious experience! Thanks Gintare and Molly. A fabulous afternoon tea in beautiful surroundings. A wonderful selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones, with prosecco. The whole experience was fantastic, especially getting to choose the tea from the little tubes in a case. The service was just wonderful — Gintare, Molly and colleagues were so friendly and professional. Definitely recommended, and worth every penny.’ 5/5
