    My wife and I enjoyed an intimate afternoon tea at the Capital. A very relaxing atmosphere, it is difficult to pick a favorite - all of it tasted so well.

    It was very nice setting and the food quality was good, the white tea is spectacular.

    Was overall disappointed. Invited friends for tea based on a recommendation. The service was incredibly slow, tea was brought out first and we waited quite a while before the sandwiches and pastries was served. Then there was another long wait before the scones came out. Then another 5 minute wait before the clotted cream and jam was served. It wasn't busy so was surprised the disjointed serving of plates and length of time we waited

    Having afternoon tea at The Capital was a lovely experience, the staff were very attentive nothing was to much when we requested for things. the area where had our afternoon tea was just perfect for my friend and I, it was small and cosy that enabled us to relax and talk all afternoon also my friend I really liked the deco and the seating. The sweet selection and cakes were lovely, the only thing my friend and I thoought we wishthere was more of an sandwich selection. That is the only down side, other than that it was a great afternoon and I would recommend the The Capital for afternoon tea.

    Lovely afternoon tea. Beautiful hotel and location. Delish food . Only criticism was the service was particularly slow . Pleasant but not attentive enough and it was extremely quiet so they weren't rushed off their feet.

    The food was amazing! Every little bite was fantastic. I normally don't like salmon, but even that was so nice. The room and the piano music gave a relaxed atmosphere. Also the food was the perfect size and quantity. It really was the best afternoon tea I have ever experienced. Thank you for that.
