Opinion:

My Favorites:

Pulled Ham Hock, Brie And Spiced Apple Chutney On Onion Bread... A wonderful tender melt in your mouth ham hock, the combination of brie and spiced apple chutney gave this sandwich a delicious twist...yummy!

Egg Mayonnaise With Watercress On Basil Bread...A light egg sandwich not drowned in mayonnaise...delicious!

Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese On Beetroot Bread...A tender melt in your mouth salmon with a delicious beetroot bread...yummy!

Last but not least on the sandwich list...

Turkey Mayonnaise And Cranberry On White Bread...What a fabulous combination for all the taste buds! A nice tender turkey with a subtle cranberry mix in the mayonnaise. Delicious!

Freshly Baked Cranberry And Chocolate Scones...

What can I say...for all chocolate lovers out there, these scones are heaven! So Chocolatey and light, one of the best scones I have tasted.

Festive Pastries

Christmas Tree Chocolate And Coffee Pot...definitely an unusual pastry. The terracotta pot is made from chocolate, filled with ground cocoa powder and chocolate powder to look like soil. A sweet shortcake Christmas tree. A nice novelty touch to the festive afternoon tea.

Apple And Jelly Snow Ball...The ball sits on a delicious sweet biscuit base with an apple puri centre, a light tangy mousse filling, white glaze topped with a fabulous snowflake...mouth-watering!

Pistachio And Cranberry Slice...Pistachio sweet biscuit base with a wonderful vanilla mouse layer, cranberry topping followed by a layer of pistachio mousse filling.

Decorated with Cranberries and a dash of whipped cream..scrumptious!

On our departure, we received a free complimentary prize ticket for our next visit. 2 glasses of champagne each, prizes vary from chocolates, sweets, milkshakes to champagne. A nice touch...

A mouth-watering experience from start to finish. Excellent service one of the best teas in London, definitely worth a visit
