It's such a well-kept secret, tucked away in the basement of Wellington Street. Once you've found it, you'll be rewarded with a wide selection of teas, cake, scones and other British classics such as fry-ups for breakfast, backed potatoes and also quiche.I went with my parents. Together we shared one traditional afternoon tea set (for one person) which offers a selection of sandwiches, petit fours and a pot of breakfast blend tea (but you can upgrade to other teas too).

I went with my parents. Together we shared one traditional afternoon tea set (for one person) which offers a selection of sandwiches, petit fours and a pot of breakfast blend tea (but you can upgrade to other teas too). The set includes Shortbread’s homemade scones, which are very tasty – but you can also order them on their own or they come as a part of the set lunch. We also shared a tasty tomato and bacon quiche – which is very yummy. It comes with a side salad so you don’t feel too guilty eating all the butter and eggs… All the ingredients were tasty and very yummy! On other occasions I tried the carrot cake as well as the chocolate and beetroot cake. Both are very moist (as they should be) and tasty. The portion sizes are generous, not just for the cakes but also for the sandwiches. So keep this in mind when ordering... If you don’t fancy any sandwiches or cakes, they also do a full fry-up (including black pudding) or some baked potatoes – basically anything quintessentially British that will taste nice with some tea on the side. And yes, of course, homemade shortbread is also on sale. I just feel very guilty that I’ve never tried it. Clearly I have to go back soon.
