Why we love it?

Afternoon tea by the seaside once involved trying not to sully the fancy hotel linen in front of the judgmental bellhops. No more. Mini sandwiches, quiches, scones and a glass of fizz? Check. Nifty prohibition touches (gin cocktails served in a brushed chrome teapot)? Check. The chance to slip on some Jazz-age vintage garms as you sup? Check. And they go so much further; consider the ‘Gentleman’s afternoon tea’ with real ale or a choice drop of whiskey. It’s not just about booze; some 25 varieties of their own tea are on offer, served in to-die-for retro crockery. The root-toot soundtrack and artfully mis-matched furniture elegantly complement the speakeasy vibe. Dogs are even welcome, as are (presumably) hip cats.
