Square Meal Review of Boyds Brasserie (afternoon tea) ?

What was once the imperial Hotel Victoria has been sympathetically restored to its former glory and recast as Boyds, a classy all-rounder that is currently staking its claim as a serious contender at the bottom of Trafalgar Square. The opulent, marble-clad Brasserie makes a rather grand setting for meals beneath sculpted ceilings and glittering chandeliers, and the venue has now upped its offer with an extended version of afternoon tea. ‘Savoury sensations’ such as potted shrimps and sandwiches filled with, say, salt beef, pickled cucumber and Dijon mustard sit alongside traditional scones and assorted ‘sweeties’ – perhaps mini chocolate éclairs, strawberry tarts and lemon drizzle cake. Teas are from Twinings and you can round off with a vanilla ice cream cone. Expect to pay £19.90, or £29.90 with a glass of Veuve Clicquot Champagne. Booking recommended.

    I arrived THIRSTY on a warm July afternoon to try its freshly launched afternoon tea.

    The menu mixes savoury choices such as mini salt beef & pickled cucumber sandwiches and potted shrimps (a wildcard there) but it worked, followed by home-made scones, mini-eclairs, mini lemon drizzle cake (delicious)...

  1. Earlier this week I was kindly invited to my first ever Square Meal Bloggers event. The lovely folk at Boyds Brasserie invited us to sample their newly launched afternoon tea experience in their Bar & Lounge. Not only was I super thrilled to taste the new menu, but being new to the world of food blogging I was dying to meet more established food bloggers and had a million questions to ask. Boyds Brasserie is located a short stroll from Trafalgar Square.

    When I arrived (extremely flustered and hot and sticky from a packed tube) I was greeted with warm smiley faces & promptly handed a champagne glass of Ruinart...
