Afternoon Tea at Brown Thomas by Johnnie Cooke
Our table was booked weeks in advance but on arrival the table wasn't ready and we had to wait and hour to be seated. We were starving but thankfully the staff gave us a trail mix and glass of prosecco while we waited. The food was lovely though would have liked more savoury on the afternoon tea. The service was slow but you could see staff were under pressure and looked like a general overall bad day. I'd try again though in the restaurant and hope it was running more smoothly on the day.
Despite booking more than 24 hrs in advance the restaurant did not have my reservation. I booked afternoon tea and it turned that it wasn’t served at the time that I had booked despite being able to book it on open table. However, the restaurant was very accommodating and I got seated very quickly and served afternoon tea 2 hrs early. Food was delicious. Tea was good but a bit weak, comes pre brewed. Prosecco with meal was excellent.
Lovely staff, comfortable setting and great value. Booked Veuve Clicquot afternoon tea for 3. The servers were extremely attentive and professional. The afternoon tea was very filling with a good selection of savoury and sweet. They carter for various dietary requirements while still offerring a lovely selection of treats. We went for the champagne but unfortunately they had run out however they gave us the more expensive bottle for the same price. They couldn't have been more accommodating. Wonderful afternoon.
firstly, the staff had no knowledge of our booking, but i must say they rectified this promptly. Thankfully i had the confirmation on my phone. i found the selection of food presented to be very poor. The one finger sandwiche the bread was stale, the rest of selection was poor. very disappointing. would not recommend. The coffee was very bitter. would have liked more time to select tea. I had to remind the waitress that our companion was hard of hearing and to slow down when speaking.
Had a fabulous afternoon. The service was lovely, staff were kind and very attentive. The food was delicious. Had cocktails which were amazing
We had a lovely afternoon tea
