This is one of my go-to places for afternoon tea. The surroundings are lovely, the food and tea delicious, and the location superb. I try many other afternoon teas and this remains one of my favorites.

We visited for my husband's birthday on 12th October and a Gentleman's Tea seemed a novel idea. The menu craftily says it is to be shared by the whole table. ...in our case two of us at £32 each. The tea is designed by Galvins...More

vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
