AFTERNOON TEA AT THE LONDON MARRIOTT

So, last weekend, I was given the opportunity to have afternoon tea at The London Marriott, County Hall. Exiting from Waterloo Station, we battled the hoards of tourists along South Bank, before entering the peaceful grounds of The London Marriott.

 

 

Entering the Library Lounge, and we were sat by the windows with a lovely view of the River Thames - a comforting escape from the hustle and bustle of tourists and the weekend crowd outside.
A selection of teas enclosed in a bookcase was brought to us, and we were given time to have a whiff of the teas before making our selections. I went for the Signature Lady Grey, whilst WK went for the Peppermint & Lemongrass.
And of course, there was also champagne...

 



 

 

 


Served on a silver three tiered stand was a selection of sandwiches, freshly baked scones (Orange crusted and golden raisin, Montgomery cheddar and Hampshire watercress) with jam and clotted cream, and a range of delicate homemade cakes.

Roasted Angus Beef and Horseradish
Wiltshire Ham and English Mustard
Cucumber, Cream Cheese and Chive
Burford Brown Egg Mayonnaise and Cress
Foreman & Son “London Cure” Salmon, Caper Butter




 

 The atmosphere was really warm and relaxing, with calming live piano music in the background. Service was professional and efficient - food was served promptly and our drinks were topped up regularly.
Overall, a pleasant experience, and I would happily visit again.
