High Tea for Two.

Last weekend we celebrated our Wedding Anniversary at the Sanctum Soho Hotel (see link HERE & menu HERE). The reason we chose this place was the fact they did a "Gents Afternoon Tea" for the blokes & a "High Tea For High Heels" for the ladies.
Normally I like to think myself more laddy than lady but it was ture - I preferred the look of the girly one, mainly because there was a scone with jam & cream on mine & not on Adams! It also meant we could chop & change the savoury dishes to give me all the fishy thing (including an amazing Bloody Mary Oyster) while Adam had the meaty bits. The only thing that was a bit of a disappointment was tea & coffee wasn't unlimited so we ended up paying just under £4 each for a second tea & coffee. Hmm.
After the food we were given a glass of champers (for me) & a tankard of Gentleman Jack & a cigar (for Adam). While we enjoyed the drinks at the hotel we took the cigar home & tried it in the back garden - I think my face says it all in the bottom left photo!

All in all it was a lovely afternoon & it was fun to have 2 different meals, but not quite as special as Sketch last year (see HERE). We booked our table through the Afternoon Tea website (link HERE), we got a great discount & Kate helped us book it via email seeing as we wanted the 2 different meals.
