One of the Best High Teas Near Hobart:

"We had a group of ten for a high tea birthday. Lovely décor and the food was sensational. Best scones I have ever eaten, sandwiches were freshly prepared. Other delicacies were just as delightful. It was a very generous serving for each guest. I don't think anyone would have been able to eat dinner that evening we were all so full. Best high tea in Hobart in my opinion. Also better than one we had a couple of months ago at the highly renowned Fortnum and Mason in the UK. Well done Riversdale Estate" - A.Cameron

Check out places like Deco Lounge and Hadley's Orient Hotel, New Norfolk, also in Hobart.
