Most of us eat breakfast, lunch and dinner each day. But when you’re in London enjoying all the sights there are to see, it’s not surprising to find you’re feeling peckish during the afternoon. In this case, what better way could there be to assuage that hunger than to head for St Ermin’s Hotel in Westminster, London for one of their mouth watering afternoon teas? This is afternoon tea as it is meant to be served – complete with tasty treats and tempting sandwiches. You can opt for the Classic Afternoon Tea if you wish, complete with a fine selection of finger sandwiches, freshly created and served in the stunning surroundings of the library. If you’ve missed lunch, this is the perfect opportunity to be sure you catch up.
You’ll also be treated to warmed scones baked on site, complete with the classic accompaniments of strawberry jam and the famous clotted cream to top them off with. If that’s not enough you’ll also be able to taste some sweet fancies and sample some of the finest teas available too. You can even add a glass of finest champagne to the tea if you wish.
The other option is to go for the Honey Afternoon Tea, in honour of St Ermin’s’ collection of bees. On the roof of the hotel there are an incredible 200,000 buckfast honeybees, and it is from these bees that the honey themed menu is derived.
You’ll have the opportunity to sample lemon and honey polenta cake, honey and caramel mousse and even honey Bakewell tart. Of course, you’ll also get a delightful selection of finger sandwiches and freshly baked scones, complete with strawberry jam, clotted cream and yes, you guessed it, a tenderly tasteful drop of honey. This option also includes a jar of St Ermin’s honey to take home.
