The Colonnade – Little Venice

It was ideal to go for Afternoon Tea with my friend who had first introduced me to the special indulgent world of this British ritual many years ago. Since that day, Afternoon Tea has been one of my favourite things to do! The Afternoon Tea was served in the restaurant of the Colonnade Hotel. Despite it being…

The Hayloft Restaurant, Boycott Farm – Stowe

A year has passed by fast and with another bambino in our group, it was that time of year for an annual outing with friends. After a wonderful morning at the National Trust Stowe Landscape Gardens, an Afternoon Tea was our indulgence. A short drive from the gardens, Boycott Farm was the where the Hayloft…

Andronicas World of Coffee – Covent Garden

3 Oceans – Finchley

Brooklands Brasserie & Bar – Weybridge

Our Afternoon Tea started off with a choice of teas. We had the classic English Breakfast which was served by the pot. Next came our lovely sweet delights of homemade scones and selection of cakes.

Lobby Lounge at Montcalm Hotel – Marble Arch

Montcalm Hotel has utilised the lobby into an afternoon tea area! It also has a restaurant towards the back of the lobby. There were big flower displays including vases of orchids. It was a little chilly as the seating is next to the main entrance of the hotel.

Mauve Lounge at Swissotel The Howard – Temple

The Mauve Lounge is so spacious and has luxurious purple seating. There are huge wall sized windows which contributes to the light and airy atmosphere. It’s nice that the “Mauve” theme is displayed through all the décor.
