It was IMMENSE.
Firstly I was bowled over the beautiful floristy in the entrance, with flowers lining the staircase and vases in abundance.
Secondly, when I left my coat in the cloakroom I was given a leather fob (the thing you hand in to get your coat back) thatwas inside a Claridges envelope.
No raffle tickets used here.
Thirdly, they refill the teapots a lot and you will need to visit the bathroom, which is not a bad thing as they are very nice – lots of wooden panelling and soft lighting.
And finally, you will eat too much. Those little delicate cakes must be made of expanding foam or something as you’ll stand up to leave and feel like a weeble.
Go there, it’s lovely.
