Perched on the top floor of London’s foremost food and luxury goods emporium, the Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon is far removed from the bustling consumerism of Piccadilly below. Tinkling piano renditions of show tunes set the tone for a sedate afternoon of self-indulgence, held in a light-filled, spacious room decked out in the store’s trademark eau-de-Nil. The classic afternoon tea, presented on fine china and beautiful silverware, runs from neat lines of finger sandwiches filled with the pick of ingredients from F&M’s food hall, to just-right scones with clotted cream and house jam. A top tier features daily-changing treats, all made on-site – from moreish chocolate cake tinged with Earl Grey and filled with fresh apricots, to incredibly moist white-chocolate-and-cherry fancies. Staff – working dapper waistcoats and cut-glass accents – are discreet but charming.
