The Hotel Coachman came up with the idea of organising High Tea on the 3rd Sunday of each month, over winter. They are extremely popular. On 2 occasions there were very large groups who had chosen to celebrate Significant Birthdays by booking in for the High Tea. This swelled numbers significantly. However the challenge was not at all daunting to the staff who managed to keep tea pots full and plates laden with treats. Most guests being offered small boxes to take home any ‘left overs.’
The Grand Piano being played in the foyer by Sarah from Palmerston North Girls High, provided a pleasing ambiance. Full marks must go to Russell Chappell who creates the delicacies served on the tiered cake stands. The cakes he creates for ‘special occasions’ are truly spectacular. If you are wanting a cake that will be remembered just contact Russell through the Hotel Coachman – you won’t be disappointed.
