What a wonderful pre-Mother's Day High Tea. My girls and I (two daughters and two daughter-in-laws) indulged ourselves with a "girls" afternoon tea celebrating our motherhood without the children (apart from one baby granddaughter who could not be left behind).
The Conservatory sits at the top of the opulent staircase at the front of the Casino and is a lovely elegant setting for high tea, the view of the river lovely, the chairs so comfortable and the "all you can eat" delicious savouries and tempting sweet treats were never ending. A glass of champagne made the occasion complete.

And when the savouries were done we started on the sweets and copious cups of tea and coffee and the odd glass of champagne.

|No calorie counting here!|
Chocolate Fountain just crying out for marshmallow and fruit dipping

|Tangy Lemon Tart with mini Meringue|
|Creamy filled chocolate base topped with strawberries|
|Tarty Rhubarb with raspberry|
|Selection of ice cream and toppings|
|All that sugar makes us tired!|
Definitely not a place to go if you are counting calories but lovely once in a while
