This place wins hands-down for being worthy of hosting your most treasured of occasions whilst offering superb value for money if you’re coming in for afternoon tea. Expect a simple, elegant and quintessentially British affair, from home-cured ham and mustard finger sandwiches and fruit scones with lashings of clotted cream and jam, to some good old Battenberg cake to accompany a strong pot of tea.
