So on the way home we decided to stop for afternoon tea at somewhere I'd often wanted to visit, The Audleys Wood Hotel just outside Basingstoke http://www.handpickedhotels.co.uk/hotels/audleys-wood-hotel-basingstoke/
After driving up a long tree lined drive we found a beautiful, large, historic country house hotel.
The sandwiches were nice, but nothing truly exciting, so much so that we forgot to take a picture.
Of course, well for me anyway, the highlight of afternoon tea is the plate stand with cakes and scones. These were lovely, although in all honesty, the cakes weren't as good as the scones and especially the tarts (that chef sure knows how to make pastry), I'm afraid by the time we took the picture we'd eaten the 2 chocolate tarts which were superb.
