Winter wonderland afternoon tea at the chesterfield Mayfair London

 On Thursday I had an amazing Christmas afternoon tea and catch up with my friend. 

I have been to the chesterfield a few times now so knew it would be a good one. It certainly lived up to the previous times and the Christmas theme was a lovely touch . The Winter Wonderland afternoon tea is priced at £55 each 

The hotel is down a side road close to green park station. The reception lobby is small but always decorated nice for Christmas. There was a large Christmas tea at the side and then a table in the middle of lobby with a very  large real  gingerbread house all lit up. The attention to detail was amazing. 

After taking a few photos we were shown to the conservatory just off  restaurant where they serve the afternoon tea. I noticed that the restaurant had some Christmas decorations scattered around but there was nothing Christmassy in the conservatory which was a shame. 

We choose a table in the corner and was handed the afternoon tea menu. Click link below

The waiter checked our allergies and then have us a small glass of warm mulled wine. I did not think I would like it but it was actually very nice

Whilst waiting for the tea stand to arrive we both ordered our hot drinks. I choose the fruit salad flavour tea which I had had before and enjoyed. Normally I do not like tea but this just tasted sweet and fruity. 

Because my friend did not want any meat sandwiches they gave us a stand of food each as they thought she was vegetarian and she also got less cakes as some contained gelatine. 

The stands were full especially my top plate which contained eight different lovely looking cakes !!!!

We both got five sandwiches each and they were all very fresh and tasty . I liked that they were in different flavours of bread. My favourite ones were Pulled Ham Hock, Brie and Spiced Apple Chutney on Onion Bread and Turkey Mayonnaise and Cranberry on White Bread. The waiter asked us if we wanted any more so we both ordered the vegetarian one of goats cheese and vegetables which was lovely. 

The scones were next to eat and we got two each, a chocolate one and a cranberry one served with homemade strawberry jam which was really nice and clotted cream. The scones were not warm and they were nice but I have had better. Don't get me wrong they still tasted very good but i thought they were a bit dry inside. 

We both ordered another hot drink before tucking into the nicely decorated cakes. 

There were eight  different types of cake and we got one each which was very generous


First I had the ginger cupcake with the cute gingerbread man on top of cream cheese frosting. It was very tasty ....

If you like chocolate like me you will enjoy the chocolate log slice and the chocolate flower pot filled with a chocolate and coffee cream . As there were so many cakes to try just had half of each of them as started to feel quite full. The macaroon was orange flavour which I liked too. 

To be honest with you I liked all the cakes and was very impressed with both the look and taste of them. 

The waiter offered us more of everything and I think if you want you can take some home in a box. 

After paying the bill the waiter told us we could choose three different types of sweets from the many jars on the sweet cart. The sweet cart goes with the Sweetie theme afternoon tea which I had before and also recommend. I think this is an ideal place to take children too for afternoon tea. 


I would defiantly recommend this afternoon tea as a special Christmas treat

Nearest Station : Green Park underground  station - about 7 minute walk
