At other times of the day, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a coffee or an ice cream and savour the view. The time honoured tradition of high tea is another exclusive highlight for their guests – be tempted by cream tea, sweet petit fours, finger sandwiches, and an inordinate selection of fine loose leaf teas.
