    An amazing experience & another item ticked off the bucket list!!

    My sister-in-law & I took my Aunty & an old family friend to celebrate their 95th & 85th birthdays & we had a lovely time.

    The ambiance was wonderful, service exceptional & all members of staff were delightful with us.

    We particularly liked the fact that more sandwiches were brought over & when we asked for more cheese & chutney sandwiches, these were brought over without delay. We weren't over-faced by the scones & cakes - there was just enough. We were pleasantly surprised, though, when a sweet trolley was reeled over with another 2 gateaux to choose from!

    We didn't have the champagne with our afternoon tea as @ £17 per glass, we thought it too steep a price - even for The Ritz. However, we enjoyed our 2 selections each of specialty teas.

    All in all, a wonderful experience from start to finish. Highly recommended.

    Best ham and mustard sandwich and Darjeeling flush tea amazing I had 1& 1/2 pots

    The servers were a little slow to start servicing our table - other tables seated after us were serviced first. Food was good and we enjoyed the sandwiches & desserts. Cloakroom experience was not good as only had one attendant on duty and he was rushed up his feet due to rainy weather and all diners having coats and umbrellas to leave in the clockroom.
