Afternoon Tea

Conrad St James

Pineapple scones are hotly swaddled in cotton, waiting to be split and spread with clotted cream and a lime preserve that has as much bite as the air outside, enlivening in their sharpness.

W London

Savouries are Asian inspired buns and rolls, the best of which are filled with Thai shrimp cake, puffy and run through with lemongrass, cucumber relish and slivers of green mango.

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.
