We welcome our new high tea inspector!
Our high tea at Bistro Guillaume was a most generous Christmas gift from our newest inspector, "Ira" who at one year old proved to have the winning combination of the perfect hostess and an excellent venue choice.
On arriving last Saturday we were shown to our table in a lovely quiet area and offered the tea menu (quite extensive and impressive) and asked if there were any dietary requirements. All which were executed perfectly. We had requested mainly savoury and no seafood for one. The room is very glamourous with a delightful French flair - even our high chair matched the decor.
Four different tea choices arrived being the dragon pearls, stockholm blend, casablanca and silver tips along with the oblong three tiered stands with all the yummy treats. The variety was excellent and included: chicken waldorf champagne baguette, spanner crab sandwich, smoked salmon with dill creme, veal sausage roll, pistachio macaroon, lemon tartlet, vanilla creme mille-feuille, scone with raspberry coulis and creme chantilly.
Highlights for our group were - caramel macaroon, mini quiche and rare roast beef with horseradish.
The staff were friendly and keen to see that everyone had a wonderful high tea. On behalf of our new member and the rest of the inspectors we say well done. High Tea at Bistro Guillaume is highly recommended.
