We came for afternoon tea on Saturday. Very delicious sandwiches and cakes with fantastic service. Very relaxing, could have stayed all afternoon!

High tea was very good. Great selections of teas with the usual sandwiches, scones and cakes. Nice peaceful break from shopping with the wife and two girls.

Lovely afternoon tea in a quiet cosy setting. Nice service, and no hurrying us out when we'd finished

An amazing afternoon tea at the Samovar Lounge, which is part of the Roxburghe Hotel on Charlotte Square. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The little jars of homemade lemonade were a welcome treat. Would definitely visit here again.

We had a nice afternoon tea here. Glass of prosecco, followed by sandwiches, scones, different kinds of patisserie and fresh leaf tea. Friendly staff

It is always a leisure time to take when having a champagne tea or without the champaign. The service was excellent an unobtrusive. The selections of sandwiches, scones and treats was of the highest quality and presentation. Treat your self and try it.

until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
