Afternoon Tea ~ The setup was gorgeous, the crockery was fab, all the food was presented beautifully. Everyone raving about the chicken sandwich especially. The lemon drizzle was to die for, everyone wanted it and it was the first one demolished The best part was no interruptions...we had a relaxed afternoon, no time limit on a table or staff hinting to leave. Fredrika was almost invisible when she came to tidy up.

I couldn’t recommend Fredrika more as an event organiser. The day went so smoothly and the attention to detail was impeccable! From the vintage afternoon tea to the fun and games of croquet, we had the best day and didn’t have to worry about anything!

By Ballinger bespoke afternoon tea was sheer perfection, the attention to detail was exquisite. Beautiful fresh flowers on napkins and gorgeous antique crockery! We were able to have it outside and bask in the beautiful weather in a setting that we wanted. I would honestly say the quality of food was far superior to many hotels I’ve been too – were still raving the red velvet cake in particular! It wasn’t just afternoon tea it was a whole experience!
