Booked deluxe afternoon tea for my mum and myself( we are trying to eat afternoon tea in as many places in Staffordshire as possible)
Sandwiches made with fantastic fresh bread and our choice of 3 fillings ( not sure why garnished with baby spinach but this did not in anyway spoil the sandwiches )
We chose chicken egg and ham with mixture of white and brown bread, all of which were delicious ( I personally would cut off crusts for afternoon tea but I was capable of doing this myself ) the cake selection was yummy. The cakes were garnished beautifully ,the Cheesecake was scrumptious scones nice and fresh had to take other cakes home with us as so full of lovely food
We paid for deluxe one which included crisps and vol au vents but due to a big party coming in later they had run out of crisps and not got the coronation chicken ready so sent out two pastry vol au vents filled with chopped mushroom and 2 pastry vol au vents filled with cream cheese (which were very bland and cloying ) when questioned they did say they were just making the coronation chicken and if we didn't mind waiting they would make us fresh ones and would try to find us some crisps however in fairness due to the fact the rest was so nice we declined
The coffee and tea was good and the staff were very good and attentive.
My advice is fantastic afternoon tea well worth having and we will be going again, but don't have the deluxe one as it's not worth the extra money for 4 small vol au vents ( that's the only reason of 4stars not 5)
