A high tea experience is made of a few different elements. The selection of food available, the quality of the food available, the set up, the service and the ambience of a place can make or break the high tea experience.
I wasn't sure what to expect from Wooden Spoon Bar and Restaurant. It looks like a bar and restaurant and it didn't look like your typical high tea experience with the fine china and period styling. The seats are what you would in a café and they attempted to make it seem like an outdoor oasis with the umbrellas and greenery. There is a gym upstairs which is hard to hide though.

The food was actually really good, except for the coconut and lemongrass creme caramel which was too soft, and there not been enough orange chocolate dipping sauce or jam and cream the rest was a different take on high tea. The food tasted fresh and looked good.
The service was average and it was hard to understand some of what the server was trying to tell us but they were keen on feedback.
