Beautiful place!!! Love the ambience

There’re 2 venues for afternoon tea within The Fullerton Bay Hotel. One can choose between The Landing Point or The Clifford Pier. But obviously, I did not realise that till I called. I mean, one would normally assume there’s only one venue within a hotel. No? When I called to make my reservation for high tea, I was informed by the lady on the other end that they were fully booked for high tea. She went on to suggest afternoon tea at The Clifford Pier. That of course got me a little confused since I was still not aware they had 2 venues for afternoon tea, but I just went ahead with the reservation. Ha.

And luck was on my side cause personally, I preferred The Clifford Pier over The Landing Point for its ambience. The Clifford Pier was elegantly designed, all while preserving the original architecture of the 1930s jetty. My friend and I could imagine where the ticket counters and waiting area used to be.

And besides the ambience, the other difference between the 2 venues would be the food. Taking from their official website, The Clifford Pier’s afternoon tea menu offers Singapore dishes with distinctively local flavours, and are specially curated by acclaimed Singaporean cookbook author Shermay Lee. A selection of 8 savoury and 8 sweet items to reflect Singapore’s culinary past and present. As such, there’s only 1 menu (pages 12) at The Clifford Pier. As my friend and I came on a long weekend, the menu was priced at $59 (adult). If not, it’s usually priced at $38 (adult). And with that, we started our afternoon tea:-

1) 3-tiers tea set comprising of:-

(A) 1st tier (sweets) – Pineapple-vanilla thumbprint cookie, roselle jam linzer cookie, hainanese kaya bun, pandan swiss roll, sugee financier, bandung macaroon. Our favourite were pandan swiss roll and pineapple-vanilla thumbprint cookie

(B) 2nd tier (savouries) – Kueh pie tee, mini popiah wrapped in handmade nonya egg skin, nonya chicken curry in roti jala wrap, bak kwa jam sandwich, hae bee hiam french toast, otak sandwich. Chilli sauce for the 2nd tier was provided separately.

(C) Top tier (sweets) – Plain scone, tropical fruit scone. Spreads like butter, clotted cream, berries jam, kaya, and pineapple-vanilla jam were also provided.

Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here: PART2

So yes, I will definitely recommend The Clifford Pier. It’s a refreshing change to have a Singapore Heritage Afternoon Tea where food were spun off familiar Singapore dishes. And these were very reasonably priced at $38 (on normal weekends). But make sure to come with a very empty stomach though. We couldn’t finish what’s on our 3-tiers tea set.

And my strong recommendation of The Clifford Pier stemmed from the ambience, which I loved the most. Do come at 3.30pm sharp as the afternoon tea is only 2 hours long from 3.30 to 5.30pm!

Afternoon tea with a touch of local delicacies

I went to The Clifford Pier for afternoon tea with my friends and I was really impressed.

Food - Afternoon tea could be rather boring if the food served were mainly western food and sweet pastries. What I like about The Clifford Pier was that they added local delicacies to the afternoon tea menu, serving food such as kong ba pau, chilli crab mantou, kueh pai ti, otah sandwich and more. I felt that the variety of food served here was much better than The Landing Point (within the same hotel). 

The only thing that I do not like about the afternoon tea was the beverage selections. The Landing Point had better tea and coffee selections, while the beverage menu at The Clifford Pier was really limited. Maybe that was because they focused on serving local drinks like bandung and teh tarik.

Interior/Ambience - The ambience was good, nice view, jazz music playing at the background, spacious seatings, high ceiling, and everyone felt relaxed. 

Service - It would be better if the service staff could be prompt and attentive, we reserved a table for 5 but they gave us table for 3. We had to talk to 3 different service staff before we changed to another table on our own (cause everyone arrived). It also took a while before they served us all our drinks.

The price was also pretty reasonable, given the restaurant was located within the Fullerton Bay Hotel. I would go back again, for sure.

Recommended for the Lavish Ambience with Average Afternoon Tea!

Overall the afternoon tea items here were average so don't expect anything that is mind-blowing.. But they were very generous to provide so many items for afternoon tea. We feel very full after we finished the 2 tiers, so we have to force ourselves to finish the 3rd tier. Therefore i think no refill of the items is needed unless you're a super big eater..  

As for the service, there were some hits and misses from the waitresses.  I think the main attraction to dine here is the lavish ambience rather than the food. It's really a very romantic place so i will definitely come back again. Hope the chef will continue to improve in the food quality and creativity!
