Afternoon Tea

Ham Yard Hotel

Gone are the traditional sandwiches, replaced instead with sliders of pulled oxtail, flatbreads with welsh rarebit, and butter-fried toast with sautéed mushroom and cheese.

Hyatt Regency London

Created to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s popular book, the Alice in Wonderland afternoon tea is full of little ‘Eat Me’ and ‘Drink Me’ treats.

The Ritz

Whilst the afternoon tea at The Ritz has not been entirely flawless, the quality of the patisseries and the general luxuriousness of The Palm Court are lovely.

The Park Lane Hotel

The Royal Baby Shower afternoon tea is served in the hotel’s gorgeous Art Deco lounge, a decadent room of lustrous fabric and rose gold motifs.

L’Orchidee

The highlights of afternoon tea are the macarons which have an almost impeccable texture, and I’d recommend the sesame-speckled watermelon or rose and pistachio variety.

Chateau Dessert

Miniatures include lemon meringues, banoffee bites, fruit tarts, coffee and praline domes, berries and assorted macarons and naughty little chocolates of ganache and biscuit.
