First the bad news - the afternoon tea is smaller: there is only one scone not two; and the open sandwiches have turned into traditional finger sandwiches of egg, smoked salmon, and cucumber. Plus, it's now £7.25. But the good news is, that it's all still delicious. Today I was served a lovely mini cake with fresh raspberries and a mini chocolate eclair filled with chocolate cream. Yum. For a fuller review please look at my previous post.
I'd actually gone to look at the recent William Blake acquisitions but was really taken by Fiona Banner's Harrier & Jaguar jet planes. Something about seeing these surprisingly small machines in the context of the neo-classical galleries was pretty amazing. I really couldn't decide if I thought they were beautiful or terrifying.
Definitely pop in if you're nearby. And goodness me if you do it'd be simply crazy not to have an afternoon tea too. It may have gone up slightly but there aren't many places in London you can get a decent homemade afternoon tea on lovely china with proper linen for well under a tenner.
