|A beautiful building - outside and inside. Shame about the weather.|
|"One sure is craving a scone".|
|Our table is set.|
|The restaurant feels like being outside - minus the bitter cold.|
|Tea and bubbles. The sandwiches were the traditional finger kind - I loved the smoked salmon and cream cheese the most and please tell me that afternoon tea is the only time when anyone actually eats a cucumber sandwich?|
|Lemon meringue tarts, chocolate cherry mousse cake and white chocolate "something". Our waiter didn't explain what anything was and the menu just promises "cakes" - they were all nice so no complaints!|
|Scone and jam = insulation against the bitter winter, right?|
If you're looking for a traditional but affordable tea somewhere central than this is a great choice - I'm filing it under "places to take visitors to London" as the location is perfect. The gallery shut at 5pm so we didn't see all of the rooms so that's an excuse to go back, as is the carrot cake I saw being eaten on the next table!
