Our Afternoon Teas

Afternoon Tea in the heart of Kensington

Naturally, our delicious Afternoon Tea menu starts off with the Traditional Tea, complete with finger sandwiches, warm freshly baked scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and homemade preserve, as well as a selection of pastries including éclairs, tartlets, cupcakes and macaroons. Make sure you let us know which treat you liked best and we'll be happy to bring you another as well as free flowing top-ups of your selected tea or coffee.

We also have a range of additional options in case you fancy treating yourself to a little extra something - perhaps a glass of bubbly or a half bottle of Ruinart Champagne. In celebration of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty's coronation we are also offering a Royal Afternoon Tea complete with her favourite treats.

Little Princes and Princesses

Afternoon Tea should not just be reserved for adults, and at The Milestone Hotel we have a special Princes' and Princesses' Afternoon Tea menu specifically designed for our younger guests. Before they sit down to their delicious treats, our Pastry Chef will assist children in decorating their own cupcakes. This service is complimentary and subject to the availability of staff. Please allow us at least 24 hours notice if you would like to include this option.

Afternoon Tea Parties

The Oratory and Conservatory are an excellent option for those looking to book a private Afternoon Tea for a celebration or special occasion. We even have our very own Sabrage Master who will be more than happy to open your Champagne with a sabre.

Special Dietary Requirements

We will be delighted to accommodate your Afternoon Tea with any special dietary requirements that you and your guests may have, including vegetarian sandwiches, gluten free breads, pastries and scones. If requested, please note that we will endeavour to ensure that there are no no nuts in the Afternoon Tea offering – however all products are produced in an environment where nuts are used and we cannot guarantee that our food is 100% free from nuts or nut traces.

Dress Code

When joining us for afternoon tea please ensure you are elegantly dressed in casual or smart clothes. Please note sportswear is not permitted for afternoon tea.
