Afternoon tea is anything but twee at Scoff & Banter, where urban styling, bold graphics and flamboyant fabrics suit the trendy Seven Dials clientele more than chintz ever could. It’s cheering
to see the place nurturing the next generation of tea-takers with its ‘stupendous’ version aimed at young audiences heading for Matilda the Musical over the way at the Cambridge Theatre. At
£13.75, a collation of ‘ludicrously lovely lemon cake’, ‘tremendously terrific trifle’, ‘fantastic fondue’ and honey ham sandwiches (‘a tribute to lovely, sweet schoolteachers everywhere’) served
with delicious hot chocolate or ‘magic milkshake’ are tailor-made for kids – although mums and dads can also indulge their inner Veruca Salt with an adults’ version (£29.50). There’s a standard tea
(£17.50) for those who want to play it straight.
Arabella decided she wanted to go and see Cleopatra's Needle today - pretty random but considering I love sight seeing, I wasn't going to say no. Obviously I had to combine it with a meal and so decided to book for Arabella and I to go for a Mathilda themed afternoon tea at Scoff and Banter. I am currently obsessed with afternoon tea (my sweet tooth is out of control)!We sat down and I ordered an earl grey and Arabella a strawberry milkshake. Then her favourite part of the tea - she was presented with a copy of Mathilda….I know what we will be reading tonight!...
