Do not expect to see the lovely presentation of a High Tea as shown in the in the internet sight picture of the tearoom! Went with my friend as a birthday gift from her. We both enjoy going to teahouses and have always found the teas offered and the High Tea sandwiches and deserts to be delightful. Not so here,unfortunity. Only 4-5 teas offered, I will say that the scone, a pumpkin with raisons, was excellent served with jam and cream freiche. On computer site you see 2 biscuit size scones, we recieved a triangular one which equaled about the same or a bit smaller than 2 biscuit size ones. The sandwiches and deserts shown on site, served on a 2-tier serving dish, includings rolled sandwiches, finger sandwiches, and a couple of other types of bottem and the top layer of deserts including chocolate-dipped strawberries mini-pastries and what looks like home-made fancy cookies, and mini-cake slices. ...NOT what we got. We were served three types, tuna salad, cream cheese and cuke, and a ham salad. Tuna, 3/4 of sandwich cut into fourths. Ham salad cut in strips, and cheese/cuke in strips, some of the bread did not taste fresh, the salad fillings were ok not great. The desers consisted of a slice of lemon pound cake and a slice of blueberry cake both from mini-loafs. Finishing up deserts was 3 small sugar cookies and one larger leaf cookie with red sprinkles on it. Very disapointing for $24.95 plus tax and tip. Not to mention, no tea room atmosphere. Have heard that breakfast and lunch there is pretty good. Might go back for that, but NOT tea.
