We don’t do afternoon tea very often and this experience probably demonstrates why. We had a fabulous lunch at The Greenway a couple of years ago and our expectations were high, perhaps too high.
The pot of tea was good. The sandwiches were OK. The chocolate éclairs, the date scones and the mulled wine jelly went down well. But the carrot cake, Victoria sponge, plain scones and chocolate torte were pretty ordinary. We needed less quantity, more quality. Or maybe, afternoon tea is just not for us!
