Square Meal Review of Park Room and Library at Grosvenor House (afternoon tea) ?

In keeping with its ‘stately home environment’, the Park Room & Library at Grosvenor House has delved into afternoon tea’s heritage to create an intriguing line-up of menus. Named after Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford (the lady who is credited with ’inventing’ this leisurely repast), the spread is all finger sandwiches, buttermilk scones, cream puffs and French patisserie enjoyed with or without Champagne. Meanwhile, the themed ‘Downton’s upstairs downstairs’ variant is fun for fans of the TV series – don’t miss Lady Mary’s madeleines, Carson’s bread pudding or thinly sliced cucumber sandwiches with mint butter. If that’s not enough, look out for the Christmas bonanza, a boozy version themed around Hendrick’s gin, and a Cornish cream classic with ‘thunder and lightning’ (treacle and golden syrup). Hyde Park views and a resident pianist are cherries on the cake.

In the open, airy and relaxed lounge environment of the Park Room, Grosvenor House, large windows treated us to sunny views of Hyde Park. The staff were genuine, attentive and efficient. No pushy turnaround times and the mention of my friend’s birthday did not go unnoticed. Various menus were available but today, we were all about the chocolate. There were a range of teas on offer but neither of us glanced at them after spotting the Madagascan cocoa nibs specialty tea. A fountain of crushed cacao beans infused in water gave an exquisite and explosive lingering, cocoa aroma – nothing short of a delight to the gullet. I drank the entire pot. Oh yes I did...
