Iconic 5 star hotel dating back to the 1880s on the Strand, near Covent Garden.
We had afternoon tea at The Thames Foyer which had a beautiful glass dome with comfortable sofas and a pianist serenading guests. The service was absolutely spot on and the selection of sandwiches and cakes / pastries was plentiful.
The sandwiches were salmon and creme fraiche, ham and horseradish, coronation chicken and egg, however we asked in advance for no egg sandwiches and they were absolutely fine with that. The scones with clotted cream and jam were absolutely beautiful and there was a huge selection of cakes. We were asked on numerous occasions if we wanted more sandwiches, cakes or hot drinks. The afternoon tea with a glass of champagne was £65, which is a little expensive but, for a treat, an absolute must.
