Continuing mine and my mum's tradition of monthly 'Afternoon Tea' dates we recently decided to visit Oakley Court in Windsor. I love traditional afternoon tea - we've tried so many different quirky twists on afternoon tea but nothing beats warm fruit scones with lashing of fruit jam and clotted cream so the classic tea here was a joy. Together with your classic scones, you are treated to a glass of champagne, a pot of tea and freshly made finger sandwiches including cucumber, egg, ham and smoked salmon plus lots of little cakes and fancies.
The hotel itself is simply beautiful. An old English Country House Hotel right on the banks of the River Thames. After our tea, we had a walk down beside the river which topped off a wonderful Saturday afternoon.
