It had been my lifelong dream to have afternoon tea at the Ritz, and last month I finally got to go! It really was as incredible and glamorous as I expected it to be. There was a piano playing in the background, all the varieties of tea that you could ask for, and the most delicious sandwiches and scones I’ve ever eaten!
The chefs have taken your boring sandwich combos and made them a hundred times better. Who knew that a boring cucumber sandwich could taste so delicious with the addition of some fresh dill? Plus, they were all served on fluffy bread or in the case of the egg mayo, a brioche bun – so, not your average sarnie. You’ll get two rounds of sandwiches and unlimited tea for £60 a head so it’s expensive but exceptionally good value for money. You’ll definitely not leave hungry.
The cakes were so beautifully presented, and you’re sat in an exquisite tea room, which all adds to the elegant experience. The scones were even served warm and fresh out the oven. It’s perfect for a special occasion or treat.
It’s exceptionally difficult to reserve a table for tea, so I’d recommend booking far in advance! You could also do what we did and look out for cancellations if you’re able to be spontaneous. It was easily the best afternoon tea I’ve ever had!
