The Foyer & Reading Room at Claridge's 22

Squaremeal Review of The Foyer & Reading Room at Claridge's ?

Best Restaurants - Afternoon Tea - WinnerOnce Claridge’s library, this all-day dining room has replaced bookish silence with an appropriately civilised buzz, while marble-cut fireplaces, velvet columns and a gorgeous Dale Chihuly glass sculpture up the art-deco ante. The kitchen invests in produce rather than dazzling technique, but pricey satisfaction is guaranteed, whether you order smoked haddock risotto, roast pork belly with braised red cabbage and apple or cod with spelt, brown shrimps and cauliflower. The venue is also a diamond for breakfast, “midnight snacks” and sell-out afternoon teas complete with a tinkling piano – so book well ahead for leisurely repasts with leafy brews from the Rare Tea Company and a host of delights arrayed on spindly silver stands. Service is discreet yet totally attentive, and the whole shebang comes with a liberal helping of A-list celebs.

Best breakfast in London

Editor's pick Achieving a discrete yet classy atmosphere that suggests wealth but not bling (on the part of both the establishment and its clientele) is hard effort to pull off successfully. Yet this is what Claridges manages to do. Against this background, breakfast in their Reading Room – just off the main hotel foyer – is one of the most civilised ways to begin the day. For lovers of art deco, there are few more beautiful public rooms in London and beyond the mirrors, wall panels and light fittings, no element...

    Around the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes :: Afternoon Tea at Claridges

    Good things come to those who wait and I’ve being waiting a long time to get a booking to try the Gluten Free Afternoon Tea at Claridges. Let’s just say it was totally worth the wait! This was my third visit to Claridges for Afternoon Tea however it was my very first time sampling their delightful gluten free afternoon tea.

    Tea With Me And Friends :: Tea With Me And Friends: Time for Tea....Claridges

    Claridges has been on our wish list for a long time now, and recently Lorna received a really wonderful gift of afternoon tea for two at Claridges (I am really pleased that she decided to take me along with her!).

    We were so excited about this particular afternoon tea adventure that we have decided to talk about it in two different vlog posts! Firstly, Lorna talks about the anticipation of waiting for your next afternoon tea adventure and how the build up can be just as exciting as the tea itself (especially if it involves posh post!). We have also added a before, during and after vlog....so you can join...
