    My husband and I travelled down on the train and had afternoon tea at The Ritz at 11.30am which was perfect for us as we were then going on to a show. The staff were excellent and attentive. The food was delicious. If I am perfectly honest I would have preferred a few more sandwiches and less cakes but I am a savoury person. I loved everything about the whole experience. The ambience of the Ritz is second to none. I have been to the Restaurant for lunch a few times - the afternoon tea was a completely different experience.

    Absolutely loved it as once before. Wonderful decor, excellent food and extremely helpful staff. If I had to make one small complaint, the waiter serving sandwiches 'gabbled' the sandwich contents and with his foreign accent we were none the wiser.
