The watermelon gazpacho shot...light refreshing drink, a nice addition to the tea tier.
Roast sirloin, horseradish sandwich...a nice lean tender sirloin, with a good spread of horseradish one finger sandwich was not enough...lol
Smoked salmon, creme fraiche and chives sandwich... a gentle smoke melt in your mouth salmon...mmm delicious!
Scones... beautifully light and fluffy.
The peach jelly and pistachio sponge... a scrumptious addition to this mouthwatering selection!
All beautifully presented in a three-tier stand. One for the savouries and sandwiches and another for the cakes and scones.
A nice touch... the scones come to the table hot and ready to eat.
Definitely an exceptional afternoon tea with impeccable service.
