Squaremeal Review of The English Tea Room at Brown's (afternoon tea) ?

Not one, but two tea sommeliers will hold your hand in the English Tea Room – should the choice of 17 Jing blends and a specially curated’ ‘prestige seasonal tea library’ prove overwhelming. Guests feel thoroughly pampered and relaxed here, and the room itself is just the ticket; the baby grand piano, wood panelling and fireplace spell teatime tradition, while Paul Smith lighting and original artwork suggest time doesn’t stand still on Albemarle Street. As to the menu, expect a continuously replenished supply of finger sandwiches, exquisite cakes from the trolley and freshly baked scones. A ‘tea-tox’, featuring flourless chocolate cake and fruit skewers is available as a healthy alternative. Brown’s is one of London’s most prestigious tea addresses, so don’t come looking for a bargain; prices start at £39.50 (£49.50 with a glass of Ruinart Champagne).

Oct 2013

Took my visiting Mother for afternoon tea after shopping. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, giving us the nice high backed armchairs and cushions.

We've had tea in all the top places and for £39.50 did not feel it was quite worth it. Even though they are happy to keep piling...

    SilverSpoon London :: SilverSpoon London - A luxury lifestyle blog : BlogSpeak at Brown's Hotel and the Travel Link Up Tea

    To celebrate the success of the link up Kelly decided to bring us all together into one room for the time honoured blogger tradition of afternoon tea at the gorgeous Brown's Hotel. So when the day dawned I buttoned up my coat, slung my camera bag over my shoulder and headed out for a fun afternoon of BlogSpeak!

    Kelly had taken care to reserve us a big private room called the Roosevelt room. It was great, with 25 bloggers or a hashtag of bloggers (the collective noun for a group of bloggers, thank you Jasiminne) in one room we were free to blather on loudly in BlogSpeak, constantly click away on our cameras...
