Elegant afternoon tea in historical building. Unfortunately not all of the (large) assortment of bread/finger sandwiches/sweets were up to this standard. The scones were really good, though. A pianist in the corner lifted the mood!

It is sad with this otherwise magnificent restaurant on the third floor. The food was average and the service unfortunately below average. Not nearly enough staff to cater for a group of 80 people. Nor was it well coordinated.
