An enjoyable day out. We started with the high tea, and most of the items (didn't like pate or salmon) were delicious - especially the sweet treats with a tea theme. The tea was also good and there were many to choose from, including a new tea range - be prepared that they are served without milk. The waiter for our table was supurb (although some of the other staff did not seem as friendly) and he was very accommodating for our one year old and even had a high chair for him and brought him a plate and cutlery as well which was nice as we had not ordered food for him. we also did the tour which was really interesting and ended with a tasting of all the many teas.
I was really looking forward to high tea this weekend and while the company was wonderful and the views were lovely, I was pretty disappointed. The service was absolutely shocking, no one came to check on us, it took half an hour to get water and a glass of wine that were ordered, and we ended up asking 2 people to refill the hot water for the tea. The high tea was nice, but incredibly small servings for $29 each. I wasn't particularly full afterwards. I guess it's somewhere worth trying, and I may go back to try something from the lunch menu, but I wouldn't recommend it when there are other high tea's on offer in Hamilton.
