There is no need to travel to London to enjoy afternoon tea in their swanky hotels, we in Dorset have our own delightful hotel – Summer Lodge, who do a wonderful afternoon tea. Martinstown Ladies needed a special place to celebrate a birthday and Summer Lodge for afternoon tea was booked.
Even on a gloomy afternoon Summer Lodge always looks inviting and so was the welcome as we made our way into the drawing room to find our table waiting for us. The room was full of diners enjoying a touch of indulgence.
As you would expect the service was exemplary and so were the sandwiches with a good choice of fillings. The sweets and pastries were delicious but we agreed that the scones were a little on the dry side. This however did not spoil the experience, we were treated like ladies, waited on (there is something special about having ones tea/coffee poured for you) and had a very pleasant afternoon chatting about shoes, life, families and lots of gossip…
