Vintage Afternoon Tea
We opted for the full Vintage Tea at £7.50 per person, this included sandwiches, scones with butter, cream and jam and cakes, and as much tea as you could drink!
The sandwiches looked the part as they were small, crustless triangles with fillings of smoked salmon, cheese or ham. They were fresh and tasty, although I did feel that the fillings were a little uninspired and plain.
There were plenty of scones, enough for one plain and one fruit each person, they were warm, which was good, but a little bit heavy in the centre. That didn’t stop me slathering on the cream and homemade jam. We had two types of cake, some very rich and sticky chocolate brownies and a lemon drizzle cake, again plenty for everyone.
It was a very good afternoon tea, good value for money (even though I wasn’t paying!) and I really enjoyed it. However, from a review point of view, I think I would be prepared to pay a little more to have a few more interesting sandwich fillings, some light fluffly scones and perhaps a few perfectly decorated cupcakes or fondant fancies.
This is, of course, not part of The Food Bloggers Diet and I’ll have to work hard over the week to make up for this indugence.
