I loved a formal English Tea and the Gryphon Tea Room offers if not a formal atmosphere certainly a warm and welcoming one.
You can choose to order from their very English Tea menu which will come on a traditional three tiered tray or ala carte. We chose the tea tray. We began with amaretto scones, not traditional but oh so delicious, followed by tea sandwiches ham and butter and cucumber. Then finally the sweets which vary but were delightful each and every one, you get 4 which they pick for you.
It is a truly lovely place to make an after pit stop to revive yourself after a long day of shopping or sightseeing.
