'We did it.'
'Yes, I don't know how, but we did it.'
Well almost. On the menu it said afternoon tea was served with loose leaf tea, but we got a teapot with a teabag instead. Not that we minded. Mum prefers standard breakfast tea anyway, and the teapot we got was huge. Since I don't drink tea, she got four cups all to herself.
As well as the mistake with the tea, we were not provided with any plates apart from the wobbly cakes stands. This was easily rectified as we were able to fetch some from the self service counter.
Once settled, we took a proper look at what we had been given, and I was astounded at the value for money we got. Three finger sandwiches, a scone with jam and clotted cream, a cake, tart, and biscuit. All of these were quite large portions. I expect if we had bought everything individually, it would have cost about £13.
