SquareMeal Review of Afternoon Tea at the Park Lounge

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.

Afternoon tea at The Milestone hotel is a quintessentially British affair and upheld in its finest form. Served in the elegant Park Lounge, guests are invited to step off the streets of Kensington and into the cosy surrounds of this beautiful, grade-II listed property for the afternoon. A range of afternoon tea menus are served here, from a traditional offering to its Royal selection inspired by the hotel’s location opposite Kensington Palace and Gardens.  

Relax in the luxurious surrounds of the Park Lounge, a warm and cosy retreat with an open fireplace and sumptuous armchairs and sofas. With its traditional décor, antique books and wood-panelled walls, this room boasts the feel of a private drawing room.  

For those who select the traditional afternoon tea, guests are treated to a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly-baked scones, hand-crafted French pastries, tartlets and cakes. Start with classic savouries, from egg and cress on spinach bread to cucumber and cream cheese on soft white bread. Homemade scones are served with clotted cream and strawberry jam, while signature patisseries include the likes of a coffee and cardamom macaron, a peach and basil choux bun and rosemary and plum olive oil cake. A vast selection of loose-leaf teas is available to peruse and pick at your leisure. While the Royal tea includes half a bottle of Champagne for an extra special experience.  

The Milestone also offers a children’s menu so little ones can enjoy this elegant affair, and there are allergen-friendly menus available too, including vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, halal and nut-free offerings. However, it is unable to cater for allergies that require both gluten-free and dairy-free options.
