Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea at Savini at Criterion

savini criterion sweet Afternoon Tea review: Both afternoon tea and The Criterion are icons. The first is quintessentially British and the second a long-standing London destination for fine food, and one which has been frequented by the great and the good for around a century and a half... Read More

Castle Hotel Windsor Afternoon Tea - Sofitel Sensory Storytelling

Castle Hotel Windsor
Afternoon Tea review: The Castle Hotel has a contemporary take on the usual 3-tier stand. Delicate finger sandwiches and smoked salmon graced the middle shelf. The ground floor held some rather good scones. These were generous, flavourful and had a real home-made quality about them... Read More

Alexander McQueen at The Kensington Hotel

Alexander McQueen at The Kensington Hotel Restaurant review: Well, perhaps not the man himself, but The Kensington Hotel is presenting a delightful afternoon tea that is inspired by the fashion designer who is the focus of an exhibition in London called Savage Beauty. Alexander McQueen was born in London and was known for having worked as chief designer at Givenchy... Read More

Paramount Afternoon Tea - Centre Point

london restaurant review
Restaurant review: The Shard, the Cheese Grater and the Gherkin are all celebrated buildings which now dominate the London skyline but, in fact, one gets one of the best views of that impressive vista from Centre Point; St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge and the British Museum are all visible from one’s afternoon tea table at Paramount... Read More

St Ermin’s – Winter Wonderland Afternoon Tea

london restaurant review Restaurant review: St Ermin’s Hotel has changed. It was always a classic hotel and the history was always evident in the very brickwork. But in 2011 it closed for half a year and a £30 million refurbishment, and was totally transformed into the modern 4-star hotel that we see today. It retains much of its character but it’s now contemporary and light... Read More

Afternoon Tea - St James’s Hotel and Club

Afternoon Tea - St James's Hotel and Club Restaurant review: This is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful hotels in London, a city that has some of the most beautiful hotels in the world. It’s a boutique hotel set in a Victorian townhouse but its red brick and ornate stonework make this a jewel in an already glittering city crown... Read More

Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason

london restaurant review Restaurant review: London! What do we think of? Historic continuity, elegance, refinement – and tea. So much of what visitors seek in this capital city includes one or several of these qualities, and there are a few places that will enable tourist and local alike to enjoy all of them. Fortnum & Mason is just such an establishment... Read More

The Ritz Singapore Spring Weekend Afternoon Tea

asian restaurant review Restaurant review: The Ritz-Carlton Singapore is one of my favourite comfort destinations. It’s a delight to stay there but also to visit and enjoy on Sundays when work is over, or when one needs a civilised sit-down garnished with stunningly delicious food. They are famed for their Sunday Brunch, which must be on every traveller’s Bucket List, but they also present a seasonal Sunday Afternoon Tea... Read More

Lotte’s Kitchen with Lotte Duncan

Afternoon tea review Lotte Duncan Restaurant review: You will likely recognise Lotte Duncan from her numerous food TV appearances on both sides of the pond. She is, in real life, very much as she seems on TV: warm, funny and frilly and mostly wearing those pastel colours which have become her trademark. She is a talented cookbook writer, cooking demonstrator and baker of all things sparkly... Read More

Andaz London for Afternoon Tea

International hotel review
Hotel review: 1901 at Andaz Restaurant has an 80-seat capacity with plenty of space between tables. The high moulded ceiling and the striking stained-glass dome add still more to the light. A classic space retaining all the charm of the original... Read More

The Dorchester for Afternoon Tea

International hotel review
Restaurant review: Guests entering The Dorchester are immediately introduced to the impressive Promenade which must surely be one of the most photographed corners of any hotel. A lesser establishment would have installed a viewing gallery... Read More

Afternoon Tea at Dukes

restaurant review Dukes london Restaurant review: Dukes boutique hotel is tucked away in a quiet courtyard in London’s stylish St James’s.  It was the winner of "England’s Leading Boutique Hotel" at the World Travel Awards 2011 and it’s no surprise. Whilst its salubrious location is part of the charm it still stands apart from much of the local competition... Read More

Afternoon Tea at Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill

restaurant review Hyatt london Restaurant review: This striking hotel can be found just a couple of minutes’ walk away from Oxford Street, one of London’s most popular shopping thoroughfares and a magnet for those seeking therapy of the retail sort. The Churchill has views over the gardens of Portman Square, the sight of which sweeps one back to a gentler age... Read More

Big Ben, London Bus and Afternoon Tea at The Howard

Restaurant review The Howard tea Restaurant review: Visitors want an authentic London experience. A trip on the Underground (a good way to meet authentic Londoners). A ride in a black London cab (a good way to learn all about the state of the world in general and Oxford Street in particular and football results). A tour of famous sites (Big Ben is, in fact, the name of the bell inside the tower). Afternoon Tea... Read More

Bob Bob Ricard for Afternoon Tea

restaurant review Bob Bob Ricard
Restaurant review: Bob Bob Ricard is found at the far end of Carnaby Street. Yes, that bastion of all things tie-dye and joss-sticky has changed out of all recognition into a street of chain boutiques. BBR is, however, a haven of class with a front door and monograms to encourage the prospective diner to expect something a bit special... Read More

Chai Bazaar at Chor Bizarre – Teatime treats & traditional temptations

London Asian restaurant review Restaurant review: Chai Bazaar at Chor Bizarre was London’s first Indian Tea Bar. Other restaurants serve tea but, take my word for it, tea and its associated snacks at Chai Bazaar are an experience, and one seldom found outside the subcontinent. These days the bar isn’t a physical structure, but rather a menu separate from the restaurant bill of fare... Read More

Chinese Afternoon Tea at Grand Imperial

London Asian restaurant review
Restaurant review: We think of afternoon tea as being the quintessentially English event. Well, in fact if we were to be purists we would say that it’s a traditionally Chinese occasion. Tea is, after all, Chinese, although India can lay claim to commercial production for mass export... Read More

Front Room at Flemings Mayfair

Restaurant review the Fleming
Restaurant review: Flemings is a chic discreet townhouse hotel set in the heart of one of London’s most exclusive areas, Mayfair. The hotel and apartments are tucked away in a quiet, romantic street off Piccadilly, two minutes from Green Park and a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the West End: one of Mayfair’s ‘best kept secrets’- till now!... Read More

Indigo Afternoon Tea - One Aldwych Hotel

london restaurant and hotel review
Restaurant review: Indigo Restaurant at One Aldwych Hotel is the ideal spot for a spot of tea. Its unique location allows for the essential “people watching” without the disadvantages of traffic fumes and noise, and with the added benefit of those aforementioned people being kept at a healthy distance... Read More

InterContinental for Afternoon Tea and Summer

london restaurant and hotel review
Restaurant review: What do we think of when we consider a traditional English summer? Taking a boat trip on the Thames? Some open-air concerts? A picnic? Perhaps all of the above, and if you are fortunate enough to be staying at InterContinental on Park Lane then you can pamper yourself with a bespoke picnic to enjoy... Read More

The Lancaster London Hotel Peter Pan Afternoon Tea

restaurant review
Restaurant review: They do teatime so well at the Lancaster. The Lounge Bar is a vision of gold-hue carpet and dark wood. There is just a gentle buzz of discreet conversation from our fellow guests, some of whom were children utterly enthralled by the theatre of the event as well as the prospect of a glimpse of a particular lost boy... Read More

Men’s Afternoon Tea at De Ville restaurant

restaurant review
Restaurant review: Men’s Afternoon Tea at The Mandeville Hotel is the only Afternoon Tea especially for men in London. It’s a suitably masculine event but one which panders to refined taste. This particular tea also offers the guest a range of whiskies as well as the usual champagne... Read More

Tea and Crumpets

Tea and Crumpets
Cookbook review: Well, the name is tempting but add a subtitle of Recipes and Rituals from European Tearooms and Cafés, and my attention is captured! Tea is a drink (or beverage if you hail from North American shores), yes, that’s true, but it’s also an institution, an event, a ceremony. A mug of tea, a doorstep sandwich and a doughnut does not amount to Afternoon Tea... Read More

Tuttons for Tea

Tuttons for Tea
Afternoon Tea review: This restaurant has the air of the Parisian haunt of those looking for good food, but this is England and we do love afternoon tea. For a quintessentially British experience, and to celebrate the 350th year of our love for that civilised habit, Tuttons is offering a delicious Cream Tea... Read More

Honeybuns Cookies

Honeybuns Product review: They are all gluten-free and delectable. Being individually wrapped, they are ideal for summer outdoor eating. They are moist and almost a cake, and they actually taste of the ingredients, which sounds an obvious statement but there are lots of cookies out there that taste of nothing but refined sugar...
