Square Meal Review of The Palm Court at The Ritz London (afternoon tea) ?

“One of the most opulent hotel spaces you’ll ever see”, noted a couple who adore taking tea at The Ritz. At the heart of the hotel’s unashamedly opulent Edwardiana, The Palm Court hits a crescendo of gilded gold and lemon among polished marble pillars, Grecian urns and elongated birdcage chandeliers. Just add the gentle tinkling of ivories, discrete white-jacket service, compulsory Sunday-best attire and afternoon delights arrayed on three-tiered silver stands. Working upwards, you’ll find crustless childhood sandwiches, then scones of unparalleled lightness with abundant clotted cream and jam, and finally a veritable treasure trove of fruity, creamy patisserie. Crowning it all is tea itself – a choice of 16 different varieties, all proffered in suitably ornate and weighty pots. It can be a “genteel scrum” (particularly at weekends), but “unfailingly polite service” ensures that all is tickety-boo.

    My Friends Recommend :: Tea at the Ritz

    Just like the Queen, strawberries and cream at Wimbledon and rainy bank holidays, some things are quintessentially English. And taking afternoon tea at the Ritz is no different. As well as being English, the strict dress code, doormen in top hats and tails, and the harpist gently strumming in the background, all add to the grandeur and glitz of this very special experience...
