    Count me in as one who enjoys the Afternoon Tea at the GF. Donna and I had hoped to partake of one in London last summer but alas it just did not happen.

    I just had a look at the afternoon tea menu for the Ritz in London as I did that years ago with my mum one mothers day. It's 37 for the tea and 48 for the tea with champagne! Think I may go to the Grand Floridian tea now as that seems like a complete bargain compared to those prices! :D

    I've gone for tea twice now at the GF both we're for special events which I was invited to attend vs. attending simply because I booked. While I enjoyed it, I don't think I would book it independently as I just didn't think it was anything extraordinarily special...in my case, it was the company that I enjoyed, not really the tea and cakes. Having said that, when Jon and I were on our cruise in February, the ship offered tea at noon each day, and I found that I enjoyed that IMMENSELY. The food was scrumptious and their tea selection (with cream, sorry Keith) was phenomenal! It was always such a relaxing part of our day!

    I went way back in about 2000 when I was working in the city. Yes, it is very expensive but it is such a fantastic thing to do even if it's only once in your lifetime. The little harp playing but not intrusively, the bathrooms are unbelievable, food absolutely fantastic. Yes it was brill

    Oh gosh, I bet it will be so pretty at Christmas! It's the loveliest little place Wendy. There is a lake and the village proper is set up for walking. Little shops, and some are even interesting! There are many other places to eat, other than Windsor Rose. We just like to go there because it's different from usual American places.

    There is the nicest linen shop! Oh, and some really neat "unique" sort of places that have great things. Kind of defies description.

    If you get there a bit early in the day, you'll find handy parking along the street and it's FREE! How's that for unheard of!

    If you want to be adventuresome you can to to the Yalaha Bakery in Yalaha FL on the way. We can give you directions to there too. They are wonderful and people come from all over just to go to that bakery. And! It's OUT in the boonies! You'll be amazed when you see.
