Royal Afternoon Tea

Experience a Coronation Afternoon Tea 

Celebrate the recent 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s Coronation in the finest traditional style. In honour of this wonderful event we designed a special Afternoon Tea that includes Her Majesty’s favourite treats. Darjeeling is the tea of choice at Buckingham Palace and the Queen personally favours these simple delicacies at this time of day:

  • Smoked Scottish salmon and cream cheese
  • Raspberry jam and unsalted butter
  • Cucumber and a pinch of sea salt

To this selection we have added those which have proved particularly popular with our guests:

  • Chicken mayonnaise with chopped almond
  • Free-range egg mayonnaise and Hampshire watercress
  • Roast ham and English mustard
  • Mull of Kintyre cheddar and tomato
  • A warm selection of freshly baked scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and homemade strawberry preserve

Tea time is also a wonderful opportunity to indulge one’s sweet tooth so enjoy a selection of the Queen's favourite pastries:

  • Ginger cupcakes
  • Honey sponge
  • Chocolate éclairs
