Wonderful ambiance nice opportunity to dress sharp good service. Lovely live harp performance throughout the afternoon. Royal Tea ($28 pp) is strawberriesncream accompanied by champagne, then your choice of tea plus sandwiches, pastries and scones - one plain, one currant, served with Devonshire cream and preserves.
Sandwiches are charred vegetables on wheat bread with pesto spread; curried chicken on sweet raisin bread; their own exceptional smoked salmon on dark bread with boursin spread; and cucumber, watercress, pimento and dill. Pastries were a tiny profiterole with butterscotch custard, a cube of tiramisu and a little tartlet.
The teas they have are excellent. I opted for the Earl Grey and drank three cups, even though I am really a coffee drinker. But some of the exotic ones on offer are Caramel Pear also Tahitian Vanilla, as well as Oolong and top-drawer Green Teas.
Delicious, filling and highly recommended.
Pros: classy, tasty, relaxing
