Squaremeal Review of The Garden Room at The Athenaeum (afternoon tea) ?

The striking eight-storey ‘vertical garden’ that climbs up one wall was the inspiration behind the Athenaeum’s ‘evergreen tea’, one-time winner of the Tea Guild’s  top London gong. Served in the serene and enticing Garden Room, the floral theme is never overplayed; it simply adds a delightful, even feminine charm to proceedings. Champagne is finished with rose and strawberry; the scones scented with orange blossom; the fairy cakes garnished with sugar flowers. There’s also a savoury-themed ’gentlemen’s’ version “to tempt the fellas in” – think wild-boar sausage rolls, cheese and bacon scones, and mini steak pies, plus tots of malt whisky. The tea selection is excellent, spanning everything from top-drawer classics such as Margaret’s Hope Darjeeling to a jet-lag banishing ‘wellness’ brew. Note that there are three sittings, and reservations are strongly encouraged – call five weeks ahead for a weekend slot.
