good afternoon tea
((((* 1 April 2017 by Tracey from Edinburgh
The concierge showed us to the door of a beautiful room set for afternoon tea. Unfortunately we were left standing un noticed for 15 mins by which time we were fed up being ignored by the staff and had to say something! I had also left a note on their website when booking the reservation that it was a special birthday occasion! The rest of our hour and a half there was perfect. Beautiful food, including sandwiches ( very fresh filings with beautiful light bread) pastries and scones with plenty of tea to drink. The service was very good too. We concluded that we could have sacrificed two choices of sweet options for more savoury options.

Champagne Afternoon Tea booked online as Birthday treat. Found the Service was very disjointed.........not sure if serving staff were from abroad ..........it was as if everything they said was learned 'by rote' and spoken very quietly .........so much so it was difficult to make out what they were actually saying!!!! We were asked if we wanted champagne with our tea or separately.......we asked for them to arrive together. Expected the food to arrive at the same time but waited .......10 minutes, No food??????? So I complained that our tea was getting cold ....when were the sandwiches coming.???? They duly arrived but were a disappointment..........very little filling and bread not fresh.........we complained and were brought a fresh plate. They were very fresh
All in all not the experience we expected from "THE CALEY"!!!!!!!!! Certainly would NOT recommend to anyone.

Lovely environment, excellent staff, wide choice of teas. Couldn't eat it all and no one batted an eyelid when I skied for a doggy bag.
