30 Day Snap Challenge | Day 30 – Afternoon Tea at The Ritz

July 30, 2013

Afternoon tea fit for a queen

I have had such an amazing day today! My cousin Sophie turned 13 in May and to celebrate she wanted to go for afternoon tea, so to really treat ourselves my mum, aunty, two little cousins and I booked into the 1:30pm sitting at The Ritz.

Don’t worry, the middle tier was filled up mid way through with fresh warm scones and new hot pots of tea YUM!

We had a truly wonderful time! I won’t go into too much detail here, as it was such an amazing experience it deserves a whole post of it’s own! (Watch this space….!)

The food, tea and champagne were all absolutely delicious and the setting was incredible. The dining room was so intricate and decorative, and a pianist accompanied our tea, playing modern songs with a classical twist. The staff were all so friendly and attentive, checking we were all ok, offering to take photos of us, making jokes with my 10 year old cousin and even giving her a postcard of the dining room and a copy of the menu to keep as a momento. We really were made to feel right at home (and I could definitely get used to having tea like that every day!)

Although I’m not sure my waistline would thank me for indulging in finger sandwiches (smoked salmon and lemon butter; cucumber, cream cheese and dill; wholegrain mustard and ham; egg and cress; roast chicken; and cheese and pickle) scones with jam and clotted cream, lemon drizzle cake, macaroons, chocolate cake, mille-feuille and strawberry trifle every day!

Thank you for such a wonderful afternoon The Ritz

      Hi Hannah! Oh amazing! We only bought the one glass rather than getting the actual champagne afternoon tea, and could definitely have drunk a few more glasses :)Glad you had a fab time too!
