Well ... let me tell you : the "English tea" was stupendous!
First of all - the space is just lovely. Like most older homes, it is made up of multiple smaller spaces rather than one large area. Each one has been restored beautifully ... the main "space" has a magnificent chandelier and tray ceiling ... and holds about 60-75 (seated). Adjacent rooms can be used for the same event or not ... as required.
The menu was just lovely- service was careful and attentive without being over the top. China, place settings, etc were all just lovely ... "old money good taste" ( even though they are, clearly new) in every way as compared to anything more "showy"
We started with a little composed salad topped with sliced chicken. That was served at each place . A really breathtaking bread basket ( deserves the descriptor : scones, palmiers, small muffins, etc ... not just bread!)
Then, the staff arranged a center table with a gorgeous display of very ornate and tiny tea sandwiches, several cold salads and some sliced melon. Veddy veddy English!
Dessert was placed at each table ... a small three tiered server with teeny little pastries!
It was all just so CIVILIZED!!!!!
