    Oh, thank you for posting this!! I really want to go on our next trip! Did you order everything a la carte? Is that the blue cheese pictured? On allears.net, it says it comes with nuts and berries, but wondering if it comes with bread/crackers, too.

    This is what I ordered:

    Prince Edward's Tea - A delicious array of assorted pates, and English Blue Stilton, the "King" of English cheeses, served with marinated fresh berries, and Cumberland sauce. We then offer our delicious fresh-baked scones served with rich Devonshire cream. Your choice of our tea with a glass of our Fonseca Bin 27 Character Port. $21.00 per guest

    We have stayed at the GF have seen the Tea area, but never have gone to Tea.

    I went there for my sister in laws hen night and we had I think the Buckingham Palace Tea it was lovely and that swan pastry was melt in the mouth delicious.

    The only thing I would say is I am from the UK where we drink tea every day (nothing like what they have over here) but they serve it with cream which is just very very wrong lol.

    I know this has been asked before so forgive me please. Can you use the DDP on the tea?

    Your pictures are fantastic and you have me once again trying to plan a trip for just me and my mom!

    especially the "favorite" and the teacup! Brings back such warm memories for me. Next time I want to purchase a teacup and saucer so I can relive the experience at home when I have my daily tea.
    GF afternoon tea is terrific :love:

    It's a very small room. I would advise making reservations.
