Much needed afternoon tea today with my mum. It's been a few weeks since my last afternoon tea so was looking forward to this one.
This is a lovely hotel next to Charing Cross station. I had a brunch here with my hubby which we enjoyed so decided to try the afternoon tea.
I got a good deal by buying a Groupon voucher with a discount code . I paid £42.50 for two with a glass of bubbly each which is good value compared to the menu price of £70 for two !!!!!!
The hotel is very grand inside with a large sweeping staircase case up to the restaurant . I would say it has a slight Art Deco feel to the hotel interior but with a modern twist.
Once seated we was handed the menu and asked if we had any allergies.
A glass of bubbly was brought over to us and we ordered a cappuccino each . About 15 minutes later the tea stand arrived
As my mum does not like mayonnaise they gave her a plate of sandwiches specially made for her. We got four finger sandwiches each which were extremely fresh and tasty. I liked the ham one best.
I was slightly disappointed that we only got two scones between us and the fruit one was small compared to the plain one. There was 2 mini jars of jam raspberry one and strawberry one plus pot of thick clotted cream. The scones were still warm and we cut them in half to share. I must say I enjoyed them and they were nice and light inside.
After the scones I ordered another coffee before tucking into the four cakes we got each.
