Opinion

The savouries, pastries and scones scored 10/10

My favourites from the festive savouries:

Smoked salmon roulade... the combination of the smoked salmon with the dark bread was delicious

Turkey & cranberry on brioche... a nice thick slice of tender turkey with a delicious cranberry stuffing sandwich together in a colourful brioche. yummy!

Pumpkin tart... a light pastry case filled with delicious pumpkin mousse filling, definitely a winner.

Festive Pastries

Santa Belt... a wonderful mousse filling with a spicy apple and pear centre, a delicious combination.

Christmas tree... dark chocolate shaped tree with a delicious hazelnut filling

Rudolf...dark chocolate shaped Rudolf with a wonderful nougat filling.

A mouth-watering experience from start to finish. Ultimate luxury and impeccable service.

One of the best afternoon teas.
