Beagle bar The Manor house hotel - cotswolds

Saturday 12th October

My husband and I went away for the weekend to the Cotswolds. 
My daughter  brought us for last Christmas a whiskey and gin distillery tour in the Cotswold's plus voucher towards hotel stay. We stayed at the Manor House in  Moreton on Marsh which is a very nice little village.
I could not miss the chance of having an afternoon tea before heading to the distillery to sample some gin. Yes I drink gin since it has become fashionable and my husband has always been a fan of whiskey.
We opted for the champagne afternoon tea priced at £23 each.
When the afternoon tea stand arrived I was a bit disappointed as did not look like there was much on it!!

There was 3 different types of sandwiches,salmon, ham and egg. I liked the egg one in brown bread best, I think it had cheese in it as well. Next we tucked into the scones, i had the raisin one  and hubby had the plain one. There was a big pot of jam and thick cream. There was cream and jam left  so  I asked if we could have just one more scone as well as another cup of coffee. Hubby thought it was a bit cheeky, but if you don't ask you will not get!! So they say anyway. We shared the extra scone .
The top tier contained 3 little cakes each which looked and tasted nice. A strawberry custard tart, lemon sponge cake and mouse filled chocolate cone. Overall it was an OK afternoon tea but i have had better .

Nearest Station  : Not sure as we drove to hotel.
Best bits : Egg sandwich and freshly baked scones  
Worst bits : Not enough food needed more sandwiches
Value for money : Not really   
Would I go back?  : No
