Afternoon Tea after the show?

Hi.

We are going to see Lionking ( again). I have booked the 14:30 performance, so we shall be out by 17:00. I want to take my family to an Afternoon Tea after the show.

We have done it in Strand Hotel and it was fine. Still, we would like to go to some place new.

It has to be non dress cod, child friendly place and within walking distance from the theatre.

I wish it wouldn't cost me an arm and leg as well.

Any suggestions?

Thank you very much.

Yuri.

Have you thought about fish'n'chips instead?

Mind you, they don't have non-dress-cod, it will be the full batter!

:-)

You could maybe try the BB Bakery in Covent Garden, that is not too far from the Lyceum....

EW. During our driving trip, previous to London, we shall have so many fish&chips. I cold probably be able to draw a fish&chips map of Cotswolds by then. I want to take my guys to something classier this time.

By the way, I know the place. Had tea there last August. They are nice, but they are more about cupcakes variations. Any other suggestions?

Don't forget the dangers of spillage though!

Thanks. Yuri.

Ha ha!

They also provide this, plenty of spillage opportunities with this one, methinks!

Of course the Savoy is nearby, but you have to book long-time ahead....

I think the finish time will be closer to 5.15 than 5.00 p.m. This is from the Theatre Monkey site:

"2 hours 45 minutes including a 20 minute interval."

Thank you Kennydon. So noticed.

Urea Minora. Thank you. Delaunay looks lovely, but all this Eastern European shic reminds me of my Moms cooking . All these schtrudels and schnitzels . Poppyseed cakes. I think, English Afternoon Tea should be based on traditional English kitchen .

I would definitely recommend the Delauney - the afternoon tea is delicious and very English with sandwiches, scones and yummy cakes. The service is great and it's about half the price of the Savoy! You will need to book as it gets very busy.

Thanks Bunny. In your opinion, does Delaunay beat BBbakery?

Hi Yuri

I've just checked the Delauney website and the menu has changed since I went - you're right, they now do a continental style afternoon tea which looks nice but isn't really traditional. The service is great though and I would still recommend a visit.

I've not been to BB, so I can't really comment on that - sorry!

Kind regards

Catherine
