No plates, used saucers as had a table tucked away in the far corner away from everything, asked for 2nd cup of tea and got lightly coloured water, mini cakes were try. Savoury layer was excellent as were the scones and macaroons.

It is okay, but the atmosphere is actually rather noisy and canteen like and the egg sandwiches and some of the desserts were really stale.
