As a treat for us we opted for "Afternoon Tea at the Dorchester" What an excellent choice it turned out to be - From the moment we arrived the Staff we polite and friendly – when we stepped out of the taxi our bags were taken off us and we went into the bar for a drink. Here we had cocktails and relaxed. We were then shown to our table, the waiter was delightful and could not do enough for us – he made our afternoon tea very special. We started with a glass of champagne and then he went on to explain all the different teas, sandwiches and pastries we would be having.
The floral displays are wonderful the décor is beautiful, you feel like you’re in another world with the pianist playing through the afternoon. We did not feel hurried or rushed as the ambience in the Dorchester is very calm and unhurried. Whilst this is a real treat and not cheap it is really worth every penny and we all have wonderful memories of our trip to London.
