Went to the Balmoral for afternoon tea.  I opted for the Darjeeling, and a (small) glass of Bollinger, and here is a picture of the cakes we got.  At first I didn’t think it looked much, but we managed to brng home a box of cakes we couldn’t eat.  I wasn’t too sure about the cinnamon scone – just a plain scone would have been preferable.  There was someone playing the harp (I’ve never heard “Happy birthday to you” on the harp before) and when he clocked off, someone came in to play the grand piano.  I looked around for Miss Marple, but she must have been away solving a murder somewhere else. 

Quick guide to the selection: sandwiches, scones, shortbread, Dundee cake, tiffin, cream slices and fruit tarts.
