The Savory part of the afternoon tea wS disappointing not enough and what we did get was stale and under filled, the cakes were ok but compared to the Renfield st Cup it was rubbish.

Got 3 almost tasteless scones the 4th looked more like a pancake, The menu said it would be served with clotted cream, we actually got whipped cream. Am I'm pretty sure there was nothing black Forrest like about the cup cake. The afternoon tea menu reads better than it tastes. The only thing we were happy with was the tea, amazing selection. Next time maybe just a sandwich and a cuppa

The afternoon tea was delicious, the only criticism we have is that perhaps a few more wee savoury items would be welcomed. The cakes were lovely, but we were both disappointed in the scones, they were very small and crumbled to bits when trying to cut into them. I was very much looking forward to one of the large scones that were on display on the shelf, as they looked soft and fresh. The previous afternoon tea I had with the renfield Street lounge had those lovely big scones and they heated them up while you ate the savoury selection.

We have been to CUP on Byres Road several times for Morning Tea ( which is fabulous) and we were looking forward to this. We were very disappointed as we had two tiny sandwiches each and lots of cakes. We would have preferred something more substantial to eat rather than a whole lot of cakes. Very expensive for what it was.

Hi, I feel like the £10 supplement was excessive and meant that it is on saving was not as good. Very disappointed.

When we arrived at cup there was only a few table in, and we had to wait for half an hour before someone served us! If it hadn't been a gift for my mother in laws birthday we would have left the restaurant, 2 table who came in after us were served before us! Food was fine drink was fine but the service was very disappointing
