Lovely ambience but food is pretty average

It was time for catching up again and the selected venue is Courtyard at Fullerton. The bright, spacious dining hall was nothing short of sophisticated, with cushy seats and tasteful decor.

One of the specialities is the Scones, served in warm cloth tray - crusty, firm and slightly sweetened. The addition of raisins perked me up. The clotted cream and jam spread were lovely flavor enhancers, further boosting the taste of the pastry, though they were both a little runny.

All of us had the English Hightea Sets that comprise of a three-tiered tray of savouries and sweets, as well as a beverage. 

The Creme Brulee with Blueberries was rather nice - break through the crispy layer of hardened caramel and the cream within is luscious and smooth. The pairing of blueberries gave it a rather sharp contrast.

The Open Face Smoked Duck Sandwich was rather nondescript save for the fact that the duck was tender but a tad salty in my opinion. The Mini Bagel with Parma Ham and Melon was a palatable combination - succulent but saltish ham balanced by the crunchy sweetness of the melon cubes.

I enjoyed the Open Faced Shrimp Sandwich - the shrimp was fresh and bouncy, coupled beauitfully with a sauce similar to mentaiko.

As a chocolate lover, i was bitterly disappointed with the chocolate buffet. 5 of us went and paid close to $60 per pax...  money is not the issue but the variety offered...  very little to choose from...  i'll rather buy those chocolate bar sold at ntuc...  other than that service was excellent. Ambience was good. Ill rather skip this buffet

Went there for Weekend English High Tea Buffet with my colleagues, as we got a subsidised price with company, it's only $28 per pax.
As it was a big group of us, it took them quite some time serve us the tea and food initially.

For someone who love a big variety of food, the spreads there seems a bit little for me, but there's a few items that I really like such as the Smoked Salmon Sandwich, Parma Ham Bagel and the Smoked Duck Open Face Sandwich, so I kept ordering that few items. The Chocolate Tart and the Creme Brulee was a bit too sweet for me, the Lemon Tart is quite refreshing, especially after eating the sweet desserts.

One of my colleagues doesn't like margarine on her sandwiches, so her favourite is the Otah Open Face Sandwich. As I saw that she had quite limited choice of food, half way through the buffet I asked one of the staffs, Jackson, to ask the kitchen to help to prepare a set of sandwiches without any margarine. He replied that as they got the sandwiches from a kitchen that was much further away, it might take around half an hour or more to do so as it was raining heavily at that moment. I was quite surprised as I thought the kitchen should be in the hotel.

After around 15 mins, Jackson served my colleague a plate of sandwiches without margarine, but the bread was different from the normal spread and it only consist of Smoked Salmon, Cucumber and Tomato, and we do not have tomato sandwich in the normal spread, so I guess maybe they got the normal spread from a caterer and Jackson specially asked their in-house kitchen to help to make a special set for my colleagues from their existing ingredients in the kitchen. Really appreciate his effort and wonderful customer service!

The range of Tea and Coffee are quite good too, among all that we had tried I prefer the Fruit Tea and Mocha coffee, really nice and fragrant. 

To be honest if I was to pay the full price $43++ for the English High Tea I would think that it's not really worth it as I will prefer to spend that amt of money on International Buffet as I'm more of a meat and Seafood person. But for the Service and Ambience I don't mind going there again to try their a la carte menu.

The Courtyard at The Fullerton Hotel has a legendary chocolate buffet that has been around for 11 long years, so it’s no one-hit wonder. Why is it worth the calories? Served with unlimited coffee and tea, the buffet menu includes both classic and experimental dishes. There is wasabi lime chocolate jelly, a salted chocolate caramel tart and gourmet chocolate creations such as cakes, tarts, brownies and pralines. The highlight is the hot chocolate connoisseurs’ bar, where chefs whip up bespoke cups of premium hot chocolate à la minute for guests, who choose from eight different percentages of cocoa.
