SquareMeal Review of
Park Lounge at The Milestone Hotel (afternoon tea)
For a spot of total indulgence, it’s well worth making time for this classic afternoon tea. Sink into the comfort of deep sofas and chairs before tucking into an array of exquisitely made finger sandwiches, warm scones with Devon clotted cream and homemade jam, and a wickedly tempting selection of pastries and cakes. Tell the waiting staff your favourite delicacy and they’ll replenish it. Children are especially welcome: a Prince and Princess menu is available for them, complete with milkshakes and particularly child-friendly treats. For the grown-ups, the vast tea menu is a thing to be admired – and set aside, in favour of a glass of Champagne or two. Ardent fans of afternoon tea will be happy to know that The Milestone can lay on a very good private tea party in the Oratory or Conservatory, if you ask staff nicely.
