Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea is a quintessentially English tradition and is upheld in its finest form here at The Milestone, in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington. In celebration of our treasured location opposite Kensington Palace and Gardens, and inspired by the new season of "The Crown", we are delighted to announce our Royal Afternoon Tea.

Served in Cheneston's Restaurant, the Park Lounge or the Conservatory, this exceptional experience is a true royal indulgence – discover a delicious array of delicate finger sandwiches, accompanied by warm freshly baked scones piled high with Devonshire clotted cream and home-made preserves, and a selection of pastries including éclairs, tartlets, cupcakes and macarons. 

At the centre of our Royal Afternoon Tea sits an edible gold tiara, placed atop a raspberry, strawberry and Valhrona chocolate mousse cube, sprayed with royal purple and with a pistachio biscuit at its heart.  

Taste a vast collection of loose leaf teas at your leisure in fine surroundings, or perhaps a glass of Lanson Champagne, holder of a Royal Warrant to the Court of England since 1900.
