Christmas High Tea @ The Hotel Windsor @ Friday, January 03, 2020

Thursday 2nd January 2020

A late high tea lunch at The Hotel Windsor. A lovely table for two by the window. Air con, nice music. The other year we had the pleasure of staying in a suite here and loved it, the breakfast buffet so calming with the classical music (quite rare) the exclusiveness of it all (till people arrive in backwards baseball caps and singlets *shudder*. It's a bit of that old world magic that we see glimpses of sometimes.

Starting with the top tier, tiny canapes, they're nice but I have no idea what they are.

Sandwiches were nice, quite good I love cheese and tomato chutney. 
Missing a chicken one though. 

Cakes were nice, eclair a hint dense. 
That chocolate tart was really good! 
The passionfruit coconut one too.

Onto scones, a fruity one and a plain. So light and fluffy!! Jas loved the strawberry jam, 
I found the cream a little more firm to spread than preferred.

A lovely afternoon, a try once thing for me (jas has been wanting to dine here for ages, naturally he was an hour late and had not a care in the world), other places are cheaper/and there's more food. Funny thing - quite a few places places we love have closed. But a place we recommend is Hatter and hare $70 similar price yes, but there's so much more food.

Great service from the guy at the door.

Tip - Wait for red balloon gift vouchers are on sale

Damage - We got 15% off and actually paid like $64 (normally $75).
