I recently ordered afternoon tea from The Metropole Hotel as a gift for my aunt. She was honestly blown away, from the delivery to her door, the packaging and the food offering which was amazing. So looking forward to ordering it again. The follow up call from the hotel to see how she enjoyed it was just so special... thank you so much.
