    I was just interested in what people pay because in my opinion the ones that @peggy showed pictures of didn’t look particularly appetising.

    I felt the same as you that takeaway afternoon tea didn’t look as appetising as I anticipated and I’m not keen on the adding of the grazing parts into it such as crisps/scotch egg etc. I prefer just sandwiches and cake.
    Yours looked exactly how I like an afternoon tea and certainly made me hungry!

    Funnily enough I do have a Food Hygiene Certificate from the days when they didn't expire. Acquire on a course run for CAMRA but largely used at The Cambridge Museum of Technology. One day someone from Environmental Health turned up in the little shop where drinks & snacks were served, looked at the certificates and demanded to see the people on site. So three of us volunteers were dragged out from where we were working, assortedly covered in dust & grime from sorting the basement store, coal dust & ash from stoking the boiler and grease from stripping down an engine. She looked at us and said that's fine, you are able to supervise but for god's sake don't come in the shop or anywhere near food.

    They did say that they could provide a vegetarian Gentleman's Afternoon Tea if requested.

    I was talking to my eldest boy and said I though I might order another afternoon tea, perhaps try somewhere else. he asked what will be in this one? (A little disappointed with the first one) Oh I don’t know son, hopefully sandwiches and cakes. He replied ‘can’t you just go to Tesco and buy me sausage rolls and minstrels?’
    Anyway I thought I might try here as they look good and have been recommended. A better price of £9.99 a head too!

    Ooh the chocolate crunch with mint custard looks delicious and brought back memories! Although that’s on a different Facebook group page but is still Georgina by the looks of it.

    I used to convince kids at school that mint custard was actually left-over custard from last week, with the mould stirred in and a squirt of toothpaste to cover the taste up.

    Ooooh mint custard. I’d almost forgotten about that
    I don’t think I’ve ever had it since school.

    Nah, it wasn’t that bad at our school. Always managed to pour out of the bashed about Ali jug. Lovely stuff.

    It’s my next door neighbours 94th birthday today and with his daughter in Australia and his son in Wales he’s not going to see anyone today apart from his cleaner/carer.

    I thought I’d make him a mini afternoon tea. No cakes, just sandwiches and scones.
    Then because it’s just as easy to make a huge pile of sandwiches as a few I also did some for an older couple round the corner and another for a lady of 90 who lives alone in the village.
    I’ve just been out to deliver them and they were very well received. (I did cover them in clingfilm before delivering).

    I will send you my location.

    That would constitute an 'essential journey' here, I'm sure.

    And, I wouldn't even complain about the two sets of sandwiches being in a different order.

    Ah well there’s a reason for that.

    I made up six different types of filling...ham, beef, cheese, chicken, salmon, egg mayonnaise.
    I’d got both white bread and brown bread.
    It was my intention to put six sandwiches on each plate (one of each type) with a mixture of white and brown.
    But I realised it looked better with 8 sandwiches on so some had to be duplicated.

    Then it was...”but which would they like two of?”

    In the end I decided I was overthinking it so chucked them on in any old random order!
