    The best thing about our afternoon tea at the Sofitel was the service. Gulshan was attentive, knowledgeable and very helpful however the food unfortunately did not live up to the standard he gave us. First of all the setting is not very "afternoon tea". It is more of a business environment. My wife was vegetarian and so she opted for the vegetarian sandwich choice. I do not eat beef or raw fish so I just had some vegetarian sandwich options and the chicken. The chicken coronation was really nice however the nutty bread it was on spoiled it slightly. The vegetarian sandwiches/wraps were quite poor. One bite was enough of each however the cream cheese & chive on the scone bruschetta style was not a bad idea. The scones were nice and warm. You can choose two pastries each from a selection and the chocolate orange one was very nice however the Tiramisu had too much alcohol and it overpowered the flavour. The pastries in general were of a good standard and they were generous enough for you to take some away. The teas were subtle and pleasant enough to drink but nothing special, nothing to write home about. The portions are generous and the price is good at £19.50 each however expect to pay £5 an hour for parking which is extortionate so it goes to around £25pp including service charge. All in all a bit of a disappointing experience especially for a Sofitel. You cannot call it a Tea Salon when it has nothing but a glass cabinet with Tea pots to make it that. And I feel the quality of the sandwiches were quite poor and there should have been more tasty teas. If it has not been for Gulshan's service it would have really fallen down. After paying over £50 including parking I feel it was money wasted. Disappointing.

    The staff were very helpful. Nilanga had a good knowledge of the tea and was able to advice on an appropriate flavor. The choice of cakes was excellent and the setting was perfect for our business meeting.

    The service was brilliant. The overall afternoon tea experience was THE best I've ever had (& I've had 5 different experiences at different locations). The patisseries were fresh & delicious. The scones were very tasty & the sandwiches/wraps were fresh & flavourful.

    Many thanks to Laura & the supervisor for your help.

    We will definitely be visiting soon with a bigger group as we were so pleased.

    The selection was great ESP the deserts. Good portions we couldn't finish it all, hotel and staff are friendly. Only downfall you have to pay for parking as your dining with them and spending lots of moeny it should be free!

    I came for afternoon tea with a friend. We sat on the lovely alice in wonderland chairs, which made the experience more exciting and gave it a VIP edge. The service was lovely and we would definitely recommend to others. The price for the afternoon tea was also reasonable. Would definitely go again!!
