The Hydro Majestic high teas are served to your table on a three-tiered silver stand and consist of petite pastries and a selection of finger sandwiches. Freshly baked scones are served with homemade jam and fresh clotted cream. Freshly brewed specialty teas and coffees are also brought to your table throughout this 1.5 hour sitting.
