It was my birthday at the start of the month and my boyfriends Mum treated us to afternoon tea at Betty’s. How I got to 32 years old and never having afternoon tea before is beyond me. But I’ve done it now, I guess!
Betty’s is lovely. It’s such a stunning room where they hold the tea and I felt a bit posher than I actually am!
The service is on point, with them explaining everything you are having and asking if the food is okay.
We had two starters, then a plate of sandwiches, scones and cakes. At first, I didn’t think it looked like much, but the cakes are so sweet it’s plenty for two. We cut each in half so we both had a piece!
They ask if you are there as a celebration, my boyfriend said it was my birthday. During our time there, the live piano player started playing Happy Birthday and they brought out little cakes to the 5 or so of us celebrating our birthday. I’m not going to lie, I did cry at this point because I’m an idiot and need to get a grip!
The only downfall was there is no aircon, so avoid going when it’s a hot day. I was so hot and couldn’t wait to go to somewhere with aircon to cool down! Oh, that and the fact I cried ha.
Have you been to Betty’s before?
