Highly Commended Best Afternoon Tea 6 Comments
Setting: Al Fayrooz lounge is popular on a Friday afternoon – we had a rowdy wedding party to our right, a 20-strong baby shower to our left and every table filled all afternoon.
Presentation: Snacks are stacked on the cake stand, and guests can also choose one of the beautiful pastries from the dessert trolley.
Food: The crustless sandwiches are simple but tasty. The traditional British cakes (fruit cake, banana loaf and mini Victoria sponge), toasted tea cakes and scones are also good.
Tea: There are fruit and herbal variations, as well as coffee for non-tea drinkers.
Service: Staff are very attentive – they even customised the tea for our vegetarian friend.
