I didn’t have any expectations of The Allis. So far every where I’ve ever gone for afternoon tea the champagne, tea and sandwiches have never disappointed me. I’ve filed afternoon tea as one of those places you can’t mess up such as brushing your teeth (I was going to say making toast but I’ve burnt that on several occasions so that would not be the best example).
Is it best to experience something with no expectations that way you’re more likely to be pleasantly surprised or am I a complete pessimist? (I like to think the former of myself). I found myself pleasantly surprised at how much I loved The Allis. From the big windows that helped draw in so much natural light to the unique sets of furniture and the floral tableware, this place was the perfect blend of traditional and modern in an industrial space.
We happily spent hours enjoying ourselves here as the snow continued to fall outside.
