Lovely afternoon tea with my mam and in laws. Nice room, good service, nice variety of food and happy to bring more hot water for the tea. Cheese and tomato sandwiches a bit boring but the chicken korma wrap and salmon and cucumber sandwiches were lovely. Cheese and fruit scones slightly warm and so delicious. Happy to bring me raspberry jam as I don’t like strawberries. Little cakes lovely and we all brought the little chocolate one home as had had enough. Worth going and you can always have a wander along the beach afterwards to work it off.
Good service and nice sandwiches. Scones a little dry - but plenty more butter and cream provided when requested. I didn’t eat the cakes so can’t comment but my companions seemed to enjoy them and the remainder were boxed up for us to take. Lovely view too. Only downside is the quite loud “Muzak” which doesn’t reflect an afternoon tea atmosphere at all.
The room was cold! I expected it to be a cosy tea room with confirtabke chairs. I expected the crockery and tea pot to be china. Although the food was fine it was not the experience I was hoping for. I would return but maybe for beakfast or a coffe and cake.
