A few weeks ago my sister and I took our Mum out for afternoon tea at Moddershall Oaks Hotel & Spa in Stone. It is the first time we had visited the spa and also the day before we were due to fly out to Las Vegas so we we’re all quite excited to say the least! It was quite a last minute booking and I did originally enquire to book us all in for Afternoon Tea plus a manicure/pedicure but as it was a bank holiday they were unfortunately fully booked. However the customer services team did a great job in getting back to me as soon as possible and apologised for the inconvenience which was really great of them.
On first impressions the spa itself is gorgeous, set in a beautiful location you can easily lose yourself in the scenery and feel relaxed almost immediately when you come up the drive. After a quick nose through the rest of the spa we went down to the bar and each had a glass of prosecco before we were taken into the main restaurant for our Afternoon Tea to begin. In no time our treats were served and I had to sneakily get a picture before we could all dig in (easier said than done). Each sandwich, cake, scone and macaroon was beautifully presented in a range of flavours which you can check before you go and make additions as you please – You can include a bottle of fizz for a few extra pounds to make it even more of a celebration. (It is suitable for vegetarians too as my sister is a veggie and found plenty to eat if you do a quick swap with some of the sandwiches between you).
After a good few hours chatting and eating, I didn’t realise how filling small finger food was but we all left feeling very full, and even had enough left to box up and take home to Dad! Overall we had a great time and would definitely go again, maybe next time with a few cheeky spa treatments thrown in too!
