    It was our second visit which was as excellent as the first. We brought a friend for a birthday treat who very much enjoyed the experience!

    I first enjoyed tea at the Ritz in May this year and the overall experience was so amazing it inspired me to book and treat my sister on 11 September. One of the points I thought was memorable was that half way through the lunch we had a fresh pot of tea served without having to ask - my sister had to ask for a fresh pot of tea as her tea was cold - this visit as a whole was not the same standard as my previous visit and proved a little disappointing after a 2hour train journey too. We were celebrating our 60th birthdays and this was a special treat for my twin sister.

    Apart from the nice waiter and the nice tea expert manager, the experience was not that great and I would say it wasn't a good value for money at all. The food was below average and the overall atmosphere was not that great. I wouldn't recommend it but I must say that the waiter and the manager were really nice and knowledgable.
