02.03.2011- Tea For Two

Wednesday, 2 March 2011

Last week, my lovely mum and I went along to The Dorchester, where we indulged in a spot of afternoon tea at their luxurious Promenade restaurant. It really was a wonderful treat, and the food was absolutely delicious. The staff were so polite and helpful, and couldn't do enough to make sure that we enjoyed every moment of our tea sitting. And, just as we were preparing to leave, Kate Moss and Jamie Hince waltzed through the restaurant (ooooh!) However, I have to admit that I found the food that we were served more exciting, especially when we were able to take home a little goody bag filled with some of the treats we were simply too full to finish.

Our table, complete with a rose floating in water and tea strainer!

The beautiful china.
Fresh Dorchester Blend tea- which I loved (and I'm not a tea drinker!)
The mouth-watering mango foam and mousse which we were served after our sandwiches.
Mumma! (making what I think is her debut appearance on the blog!)
Me trying my best to be posh!
Freshly baked scones which were brought to the table warm and served with clotted cream and jam.
Sweet things!

Our cake stand was topped with these beautiful French pastries.
The outside of the hotel, taken as we waddled to the bus stop!
We both had a fantastic time and would certainly go to The Dorchester for their afternoon tea again. Everything about the experience, from the service, to the surroundings and, most importantly, the food was faultless. If you ever get a chance to treat yourself, then definitely do- you won't be disappointed.

  2. Oh, how fabulous!! What a lovely mother and daughter bonding time. I'm so glad you beautiful ladies had fun. :) I wish I could have afternoon tea at the Dorchester...sigh. ;)

    The closest I've come to afternoon tea someplace was at the tea party my friend and I threw for Valentine's Day. Otherwise I just drink my tea at home every afternoon, which is kinda boring. Hehe. xo
