SquareMeal Review of
2 Bridge Place at Double Tree by Hilton London Victoria (afternoon tea)
Guests checking in at the DoubleTree by Hilton are offered a warm chocolate cookie on arrival – a sweet gesture that shows this hotel knows the value of food as comfort. Its strikingly contemporary
restaurant, 2 Bridge Place, also provides the necessary luxury and cosseting warmth generally associated with afternoon tea. Two versions are available – ‘traditional’ (£18.50) or ‘gourmet’ (£32).
The former is the more ‘everyday’ option, featuring classic sandwiches and warm scones with clotted cream and jam, plus a modest cake selection (perhaps a fruit tart and macaroon). Gourmands,
meanwhile, are treated to a glass of Piper-Heidsieck fizz, toasted crumpets and even more sweet treats. An easy-going mix of business people, tourists and leisure folk ensures the atmosphere is
relaxed. Keep an eye out for promotions from time to time.
