Champagne Afternoon Tea at Les Deux Salons

This was quite a while ago now so I'm not writing much as I can't remember it all well enough. The afternoon tea itself was lovely - we couldn't fault much with regards to the food or service. It's just a shame that we were the only two there for afternoon tea - when we arrived there were still a few late-lunchers dining, but by the time we left the place was deserted. It was a bit of an odd feeling, especially as it's quite a large cavernous restaurant. I think we'd both return to Les Deux Salons, but probably for their bargain lunch deal, or an A la Carte dinner instead.

 The stand arrived with 4 types of finger sandwiches (cucumber, smoked salmon, egg and cress another one we can't remember), 6 different types of cake, and warm scones with a pot each of jam and clotted cream.

A lovely big pot of tea and there was a good selection to choose from - I had chamomile, Sam had oolong.

Lemon Drizzle Slice

 Fruit Tart

Tarte au Citron

 Gateaux Opera

Pate a Choux (we think the cream was hazelnut, all we remember is that it was very, very good)

Chocolate Brownie - this was the only one we thought was a bit of a let down, it was a bit too sweet, with not enough of an intense chocolate flavour.  We both agreed the ones I make at home are better.

Mmm....ooops, these got munched on before I remembered to take a picture....
