    I had afternoon tea at Occasions Tea Room for my birthday. The whole experience was lovely, from the friendly staff to the vintage-style teacups. And the food was simply delicious! Our particular favourite was the homemade Banoffee cake.
    I would recommend Occasions to others looking to book a relaxed afternoon tea and l shall most definitely be returning.
