Reasons for trip

Fishmore Hall is a boutique hotel and spa set in the beautiful Shropshire countryside near Ludlow. We had a gift voucher for afternoon tea.

The historic building was altered in 1820 and was a private house up until WWII when it was turned into a school. Later it became derelict and was restored to a high standard in 2007. There are superb views over the fields to Clee Hill.

We were escorted to a table in the sunny conservatory area. The afternoon tea comprised finger sandwiches, homemade scones, red berry compote with clotted cream, a selection of chef’s cakes and a pot of tea. The scones, cakes and desert were delicious. I thought that the sandwiches were a little dry at the edges. The tea tasted a bit stewed to be honest. The worst part was the teapot itself; it was one of those that, however you poured it, seemed to drip all over the white tablecloth. It was slightly embarrassing!

The price for full afternoon tea is £22, which although the surroundings were lovely is more than we would normally pay. However, you don’t look a gift voucher in the mouth!
