Just returned from a high tea at The George. Having had high teas overseas, the food and experience we had today exceeded these past experiences. Finding 5 star professional wait service here in this country and locally is difficult. But I’m pleased to say we have found it. The food was delicious, fresh and very tasty. The service up to 5 star standard. Will go back again as it was so good. Noteworthy details, Due to an email mix up, which was sorted by a phone call this morning, the Chef agreed to prepare the tea at short notice. Thank you.
