    I booked the Science/Sci-Fi Afternoon Tea for my nephew's 5th Birthday. It was absolutely brilliant, would definitely recommend. The service was really good, we were shown straight to our seats, no waiting around. The waiter was nice. The food was lovely couldn't fault any of it. The kids food was fun and interesting, my nephew enjoyed it all. It was interesting for kids with the experiment, the digging for fossils and the rocket taking off.

    Loved the theatre of this! Sandwiches very tasty, so much so we each got a second lot of sandwiches (included in price). Nice little science extras which made it a fun afternoon. Lots of people there with their children who seemed to be enjoying it too. Catered very well for all of our dietary requirements (vegan menu for the dairy/soya free people).

    Love the scientific touch and setting but the sandwiches could've been better. I did envy the kids tea a slight bit more though lol.

    Really fun for kids, nice environment and great service. For me everything was a bit too sweet, and even my 4yo tapped out on the sugar towards the end. A couple more savory options instead would have been better for us.

    Had a lovely science afternoon tea at the drawing room at the Ampersand Hotel. Food was tasty, and original and very relaxed. The service by Chantel was exceptional, she’s a credit to the hotel would definitely recommend

    We enjoyed the ambiance, the setup of the restaurant, the staff and the high tea - the theater of it. We had little children and a traditional high tea would have bored them. The restaurant was cosy and quite, we loved it.

    On entering the room, the atmosphere was very welcoming and the staff were immediately very attentive. The science themed tea menu was explained wonderfully and the children (aged, 4, 8 and 12) were super excited. First the spaceman hot chocolate arrived and was a huge hit - we all had a go at stirring in our own chocolate marshmallows - the little touches made a huge difference and the presentation was very intricate. It felt like you were in one of Willy Wonka's factory workshops. The children (and me) loved using the pipettes to create the lemonade concoction - they loved it so much they asked to take more home which the staff were more than happy to arrange. Next arrived a mixture of sandwiches and sweet treats which were great for all three age groups. The dry ice looked totally magical. We ate until we could eat no more. There was plenty of food so it was kindly packed up for us to take home. The adult's tea was equally delicious and intricate with a number of awesome flavour combinations. All in all, the Ampersand Science Afternoon Tea was a fantastic experience - the children loved it, the staff were very helpful and the little science touches kept the children and me interested whilst the menu still gave then the flavour of an English afternoon tea.
