Manor House Bistro at Fairlawns Boutique Hotel
We love the sound of this Classic High Tea at the Manor House Bistro at the Fairlawns Boutique Hotel. Not only do you get to enjoy a lovely high tea and savour English-style ham and cheese sandwiches, a slice (or two) of Fairlawns red velvet opera cake, and an assortment of delights served with your choice of tea or coffee, but you can also indulge in champagne or sparkling wine served by the glass. It makes us feel so classy! And best of all, you can pick either the morning or the afternoon tea depending on your busy schedule. Click here to take a look at their Classic High Tea menu.
