Four members of my family decided to take a ride out to Whitehall on a sunny, but cold mid November afternoon. After spending some time walking around the large garden cenre, we opted to dine in the cafe-cum-restaurant on site. Being a Sunday, we expected it to be busy and it was, with a queue forming well outside of the entrance.

At a guess, there was around 20 people in front of us, some no doubt in groups like ours, but we inched forward at a very slow pace and it took us almost 15 minutes to reach the counter. By the time we reached it, and started to order, we were told that the deadline for cooked meals had gone and that included basic dishes such as jacket potatoes with the varieties of fillings.

Not deterred, we ordered a selection of cold snacks, mine was a flat bread slice filled with smoked salmon and some salad garnish. The other members of the party chose a cream tea, a chicken sandwich and one other sandwich which I don't remember. To wash these down we ordered a cappucino, two small bottles of cola and a tea, again, inching around the service area in a very long, slow queue.

Time to pay and it was just over £27 which I thought to be expensive. The food was undeniably pleasant and we ate the lot but left feeling that we had paid rather over the odds for what was essentially a cafe snack times four.
