Last but one Christmas afternoon teas for 2023 - St Pancras Renaissance hotel Kings Cross London

 Finished this year on a good note with just having my last two Christmas afternoon teas for 2023. 

The Hanson lounge at St Pancras Renaissance hotel is one we have been too for the past 4 years and then we had our final afternoon tea at the famous Dorchester hotel. 

For the Hansom festive afternoon tea I got a voucher from Buyagift priced £91.50 which includes a discount code. It was for two people with a bottle of English Sparking wine.   The menu was priced at £65 per person with a glass of champagne so we got a good deal. 

We love this hotel as inside it is very grand with the impressive  high iron ceiling which is lit up at night.

 The afternoon tea disappointed us this time as the sandwiches were soggy liked they had been made in advance and frozen. This was a shame as the fillings were all nice and our waitress looked after us throughout.

The bottle of chapel down English wine went down a treat. 

The scones were nice but very small.

After the scones we got a plate of four mini Madeleine  sponges that had a slight lemon and thyme  flavor 

For the cakes we got four each and they were nice but not amazing 

Cranberry & Faisselle Bauble
Mont Blanc Tartlet, Blackcurrant & Sweet Chestnut
Choux Croquant, Hazelnut Cream
Mandarin, 70 % Dark Valrhona Mousse

We both enjoyed the experience thanks to our lovely waitress but the sandwiches did let it down and the cakes did not have much flavor.
Let's hope it is better next year as we will come back as its become a Christmas tradition for us. 

Nearest Station : Kings Cross St Pancras  station - about 7 minute walk
Best bits : The lovely lounge and lighting plus the Chapel Down Sparkling wine and the service    
Worst bits : The soggy sandwiches that spoilt it   
Value for money : Yes defiantly with my voucher and for such a  nice hotel.
would I go back? : Yes I would go back and hope they sort out the sandwiches next time
