Square Meal Review of Sketch: Glade ?

An art nouveau, fairy-tale woodland clearing fashioned from découpage materials, the late-night lounge at Sketch looks like something from the original 1912 staging of Debussy’s L’Après-Midi d’un Faune. ‘Après-midi’ here means afternoon tea including exquisite pastries, scones, elegant crusts-off sandwiches and the finest Darjeeling; come dusk, however, the room morphs into an enchanted forest where lissom staff proffer exotic cocktails. Prices reflect the swanky postcode – ‘exclusives’ such as sweet ending (Zacapa rum, apple juice and Sauternes), and ginger bread (José Cuervo Tradicional Tequila, gingerbread syrup and melon liqueur) weigh in at £17.50, while slightly less pays for rosemary martini, pear bellini or message in a bottle (vodka, lavender, lime and lychees). Assuming you’re not on a tight budget in this fabulous fantastical glade, the message might as well be ‘call off the search party: we’re perfectly happy where we are’.

    Nomface :: Sketch - Afternoon Tea, London

    I remember seeing the beautiful photos of the afternoon tea at Sketch and begged Mr Nom to take me. On the morning of the reservation I was super excited! I did not eat any breakfast and was ready for my treat at Sketch. Full of smiles stepping into Sketch I was led into the Glade room and I could not believe how pretty it was. It reminded me of Alice in Wonderland, the walls were painted like a forest with mirrors around the corners of the room and red lasers flashing. There was an array of beverages to choose from and we both decided to select teas, Mr Nom and I both had our eye on the Vanilla tea but he chose the Chai tea instead so we could both try more of the wonderful teas on offer. The Vanilla tea was lovely! I don’t normally drink a lot of tea apart from my green tea at home but I think I would be drinking vanilla tea from now on...
