The reason why afternoon tea in The Foyer at Claridge’s continues to win gongs is down to a careful blend of tradition without stuffiness, plus just a smidgeon of innovation. While crust-free classics (smoked salmon and egg mayonnaise) all make it into the sandwich selection, other indispensable fillings are confidently jazzed up; cucumber comes with rocket & cream cheese, chicken with a dose of tarragon mayo. Further welcome twists might include hoummos with artichoke & pepper, or apple-flecked scones served with Marco Polo tea-infused jam. Patisserie such as mirabelle plum tart or vanilla & passion fruit cheesecake is far from predictable, & teas cover the spectrum. Ultimately, though, it’s the combination of art-deco grandeur, live chamber music, silver cake stands & ultra-attentive staff that make tea at Claridge’s ‘the most unforgettable memory’.
