We had booked a Champagne Afternoon tea that comes with three small glass of Champagne. It wasn’t explained which of the champagnes were which, one was decidedly warm and the food, while delicious seemed poorly served. Note the presentation of the chocolate éclairs for example. Was expecting something a little more refined for the £40 each. In unison we all proclaimed that just one more glass of bubbles was needed (the servings were scant) but before we ordered a complementary Champagne Cocktail was served – because it was my birthday. Which finished off the meal beautifully.
