This location has been many things since the start of 2016, the last I heard it was a lobster restaurant which I wanted to try but it didn’t last. Now its Cup/Gin71 and this seems to be doing a lot better than any previous attempts here.

I like the occasional afternoon tea, so when I see that there is a deal on I will more than likely purchase it. This deal was for a special Afternoon Tea Experience, and was on 5pm. The deal was £22.50 for 1 or for two just add another £1 so I did.

Cup/Gin71 have done up the location very nice, this little lane is a very nice location. I have only ever tried one Cup branch and it was very nice, so I was looking forward to seeing how this location compared to the other one.

This was very nice, it was presented in a small cup about the size of an espresso sized cup. It was very nice to taste, and due to the size of the Afternoon Tea I am glad it was this small size.

Overall :

This was a very nice afternoon tea, and I loved the little soup at the start. Everything was presented very nice, and everything was very tasty and it was very filling.

If the other afternoon tea’s are up to the same standard as this, then this will now be in my top 3 places for Afternoon Tea.

Not in any order!!
