We had a lovely afternoon at Coombe Abbey Hotel in Coventry today.
20 years ago the Abbey was a ruin but is now a thriving hotel, and quite a good place for afternoon tea - which we were treated to by youngest DD. It's moated, ever so slightly spooky, and the rooms are quite dramatic - a touch of theatre!
It's kept quite dark on purpose so the photos aren't clear but I thought you might enjoy a flavour.
The waiter asked if we had any special dietry requests. I said yes please, I'd like a lot of cream. Seemed to work.
