    We had a wonderful afternoon tea here . Was so nice that the waitress asked us if we would like more sandwiches at no extra cost . Asking us also if we would like another cocktail.

    Great value and service exceptional. Free flowing cocktails were definitely free flowing although not strong which is probably ideal for afternoon

    The finger sandwiches tasted very fresh and the Victoria sponge was particularly delicious as were the scones. It was not lavish or plentiful, but did seem fresh and made to order. I do not think you would leave feeling full up and like you could skip supper as is the case in some hotels - this was afternoon tea, no more - and in my opinion expensive for what it was.

    A special mother/daughter day out in town topped off to perfection with Afternoon Tea at The Capital! We arrived a bit early but they were very happy to accommodate us. The overall service couldn't have been better, our waitress was very attentive and friendly. We had 2 rounds of sandwiches to start with (not so keen on the matcha tea bread but the beetroot bread with smoked salmon &cream cheese was lovely!), the little cheese scones had a gentle chilli heat. The Assam tea was lovely but the cocktails were better! We started with the bellini and followed with (more than one...!) cosmopolitan! Truly free-flowing! The sweets were fab too - little scones, just the right size (fruit and plain), amazing macaroons, coffee cake and a fruit jelly....we're looking forward to visiting again!

    The afternoon tea was very pleasant and wonderful. I took my sister for her 18th with my mum and sister and the service and cleanliness was excellent. Food was lovely, had a splendid afternoon!

    I wound never go there again. I have had tea at Sketch, Claridges and other hotels- the food was dull and tasteless and not enough of it, the free flowing Bellini had no champagne in it and the service extremely slow
