As part of our Wedding Anniversary treat to London, we booked ourselves in for the afternoon tea at the Savoy and I have to say that it was a briliant experience. The staff that served us made sure that we were fully informed of what we were about to receive and of what choices of tea we could have.
The room used for the afternoon tea was elegantly decorated with a grand piano positioned inside a large bird cage with the pianist being on hand to entertain us throughout.
The afternoon tea started with endless amounts of fresh tea chosen from the menu along with 2 food courses. The first course was a plate of sandwich fingers of 4 different types and a serving of both fruit and plain scones with jam and cream. Feeling full, we declined the offer of more sandwiches or scones knowing that there was more to follow. The second course consisted of a variety of individual pastries with a large slice of further cake to follow. Again, as with the first course you can eat as much as you like, but we were beginning to get very full.
If you are counting the calories, then be prepared to count into the thousands. The pastries and cakes are delicious.
As it was our anniversary, staff brought out a little cake with a candle sitting on a plate that had 'Happy Anniversary' written in chocolate. This was an excellent touch and one which made our afternoon treat feel really special. Speaking to staff, we were duly informed of the Savoys high standards and it was pleasing to hear how much the staff enjoyed their work. A liitle bit of history was welcomed too.
All in all, the experience was fantastic and I would thoroughly recommend it as a once in a lifetime treat. The staff are excellent and fully deserve all the praise.
