As afternoon tea is a time-honoured tradition, it only makes sense to indulge in the affair within fittingly historic surrounds. There's nowhere quite like The Zetter to enjoy this staunchly British affair, a boutique hotel nestled inside a Georgian townhouse not far from Farringdon station.

Afternoon tea at The Zetter is served on Saturdays and Sundays from midday to 4.30pm and features a delightful selection of savouries and sweets. Do note that the menu changes with the seasons, as executive chef Rasheed Sahin works closely with seasonal ingredients sourced from local suppliers to create his menus.

Examples of sandwiches you might expect to start off with include egg mayonnasie with tarragon, smoked salmon with chive whipped cream cheese, Somerset brie and apricots, and smoked chicken with celeriac remoulade.

Alongside the finger sandwiches, there is a selection of savoury treats, like a truffle sausage roll, a smoked beef brisket croquette, and a cheese toastie.

All guests are treated to freshly baked scones with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry jam. While cakes might include a lavender and blood orange macaroon, matcha cake with pistachio buttercream and a chocolate delice with candied hazelnuts.

Guests are welcome to enjoy these treats with a cup of tea, bubbles or specialty afternoon tea cocktails, for an extra special occasion. We like the sound of the Breakfast at Tiffany’s, featuring croissant liquor, Jaques Picard and Champagne, or the Pina Colada Royale, which mixes coconut and pineapple infused rum with Champagne.

Afternoon tea at The Zetter is served in The Parlour, a richly adorned room with crimson walls, studded sofas, quirky decorations and a bar. It's a beautiful space that's guaranteed to make the occasion feel extra special, whether you're celebrating a birthday or just fancy treating yourself at the weekend.
