    Afternoon tea for a friend's birthday. It just didn't feel special. Difficult to attract the attention of staff on arrival. Nice orangery where it was served, but the table was tatty and it felt cold. Food was attractively served, but let down by the rest of it. The waitress looked blankly when I asked what teas were available, and my friend was told to help herself to coffee from the urn. Really disappointed.
