Urban meadow cafe Doubletree Hilton -Hyde Park London

 Nice afternoon tea with my mum. Had a buyagift voucher that I got in 2020 for this afternoon tea that I paid £21.75 for including a bottle of Prosecco for two. 

This will be my third visit here as have been before with hubby for afternoon tea and also 3 course bottomless brunch.  It's not a posh hotel but modern in design with a lovely outdoor terrace which is perfect for a sunny day. The restaurant is light and airy with a nice leaf design. 

When we arrived I asked for a table outside but they explained that they do not serve afternoon tea outside but offered us a table that was by the open doors leading onto the terrace. It was like we was outside so suited us fine. 

I handed over the voucher and explained to the waiter that no fish for both of us and my mum no mayonnaise . He said that there were 3 different sandwiches and they all contained mayonnaise as pre made fillings. My mum decided to just order a bowl of chips and I would have the sandwiches without the salmon one. After a few minutes a waitress came over and said they could do my mum vegetarian sandwiches that had no mayonnaise so she cancelled the chips. I think the waiter did not understand but it was all sorted in the end. 

The waiter brought over our bottle of Prosecco in a ice bucket and poured us a glass each. It was nice and chilled and perfect on a warm day. 

We had to wait about 20 minutes for the tea stand to arrive as I think they had to make up my mums special sandwichs. We did not mind as we had the lovely Prosecco to drink whilst chatting away. 

The waitress brought over the tea stand which looked nice. 

We got 4 finger sandwiches each in brown and white bread. I had egg mayonnaise, cucumber and two chicken ones. My mum got cumber, cheese and tomato and a veggie filled one. She said they were nice and very fresh. I liked my chicken ones best. 

We both ordered a cappuccino before starting on the scones. 

The scones were small and we only got one raison one each with a small pot of jam and pot of clotted cream to share. It's a good job my mum does not like clotted cream as it was a very small pot and I do like a lot on my scone !!!! 

The scone was warm and nice but would of liked another one !!!!

Lastly we had the cakes which looked nice however we only got three small ones each. There was a chocolate sponge cake , pink strawberry cheesecake and a macaroon. I liked the cheesecake best it was nice and creamy. 

The waiter asked if we wanted another drink and I ordered just an Americana coffee whilst my mum finished her last glass of Prosecco. 

Before leaving I asked if the voucher covered everything and they said yes nothing to pay. So we just left a cash tip on the table as the service had been good. 

The afternoon tea is priced at £20 each if you book via which is not a bad price but if paying this  I would like perhaps another scone each and cake for this price. 

Nearest Station :        Queensway underground  - about 8 minute walk 
Best bits : Chilled bottle of Prosecco    
Worst bits :  Only one small scone each  
Value for money : Defiantly for my voucher but full price £20 each without Prosecco is an average price    
would I go back? :  Yes if I can get another great voucher deal
