Last Saturday afternoon, my parents and I had an Afternoon Tea in the stylish Oscar Bar & Restaurant, in Charlotte Street Hotel. For nearly two hours, we tried, in vain, to eat all the sandwiches, scones, cakes, macaroons, cupcakes, biscuits, and the other mini piles of sugar that laid before us. Oh, and we drank some tea.
We left so full we didn’t eat anything else until the following day, and the number of food we left on the cake stand was still enough for another three people to have quite a sumptuous repast.
The service was impeccable, as I expected from this place, and even though it wasn’t cheap, the setting and the quality (and amount) of the food could have justified an even higher price. I also fell in love with their Wedgwood tea set.
