21086938984_20cd465387_cEverything comes out at the same time except for scones (because you always want those warm). Sandwiches include:

  • Slow-roasted organic chicken and buttered corn
  • Smoked salmon tartar with crème fraîche and dill
  • Cotswold egg and mustard cress
  • Cucumber and cream cheese
  • Portland crab and crayfish with asparagus on nori bread
  • Wiltshire cured ham and heritage tomatoes

21086830304_4a0ec15414_cWith the exception of the crab and crayfish, all sandwiches were presented as a single slice of bread rolled and pressed/pinched at the ends. I kind of love it.

    Lovely comfortable room, nice atmosphere, didn’t feel rushed. Delicious sandwiches & cakes. Excellent service, nice touches like plumping up your seat cushions if you got up & very attentive in refilling glasses & plates.
