In most cases, his inspectors report, the old rule of "one per person and for the pot" is forgotten and one tea bag is dropped in the pot, regardless of size. It also speaks of absurd prices charged for "traditional" English teas.  More

Scones, sandwiches and a couple of cakes cost as much as £8 at the Ritz and Dorchester and £7.50 at the Grosvenor House. "They might as well charge an entrance fee and have done with it" said the guide. In contrast, it praised "the continuing revival" of Britain's oft-criticised motorway restaurants. More
