SquareMeal Review of Afternoon tea at The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell

The quirky, antique-stuffed interiors of The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell seem incredibly fitting for a spot of afternoon tea. What better place to go pinkies up then somewhere that feels like the sitting room of an eccentric great aunt? The names of the two menu choices reflect that feeling, offering a selection of classic finger sandwiches from Aunt Wilhelmina or truffled sausage rolls and meat pastys from Uncle Seymour. Homemade brown sauce with the latter is particularly good. Both come with freshly baked scones and cakes like salted caramel and apple choux buns. A Royal Air Force Traditional English Breakfast is the obvious choice from the Rare Tea Co. selection served in painted china, but we opted for a smooth Bronze Faun cocktail of rum, crème de cacao and elderflower cordial. Available in the lounge from 2-5pm every day, afternoon teas here start at £33pp depending on your tipple of choice.
