The afternoon tea was fabulous. The finger sandwiches were made with different flavour breads which complemented the fillings. The scones were lovely and warm. It was nice that we had our own selection of desserts as opposed to having to share. The service was first rate. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive.

Lovely afternoon tea. We got the free flowing champagne option, which was good value. Cakes and sandwiches were delicious. Service was excellent.

It was great, but it's not £45 per person, it's £52 per person.

The venue was fantastic, The Hansom is situated in the old building with high ceilings and original features. The staff could not have been nicer, they were informative, attentive and knowledgeable. It was great value for money, and an added touch of finding out if we were celebrating anything, which we were, a special birthday, they delivered a special plate with candle. A lovely touch.

The location is incredible and the service was really nice. We had a lovely time. Only side note is that we would have preferred more savery dishes (or maybe option to refill)

High tea was superb! The service was impeccable. Everything was explained in detail. It was our first high tea and now it won't be the last.
