I'm planning on going to high tea with a few girlfriends in the next month and am hoping some of you might have recent reviews. I've only been to the one at the Ritz and thought it was great. Pricey, but worth the splurge for the occasion and quality of food. This will be a special occasion. Unfortunately, high tea is not available there until the end of Feb, which will not work for us. Our second choice was The Palace, but we are going on a Sunday and tea is only available on Saturdays.
So, I'm thinking of maybe the Rotunda. I've heard mixed reviews. What do people think? I like the grand setting (from what I can tell, similar to the Ritz and Palace). How is the tea and food?
Other options are Lovejoy's, Crown & Crumpet or Samovar. These places look more affordable but not as grand either. After all, it's just tea and sandwiches so if we're going to pay for that, we'd rather it be high quality and special.
