The best afternoon teas include little extras, to enliven the typically gentile atmosphere, and the Corinthia offers live music to do just that. Tinkling away in the background a pianist will accompany your afternoon of eating and drinking to create a refined but enjoyable ambiance. Menus change with the seasons, to reflect the very best ingredients, but tried and tested combinations aren’t shunned, with plenty of familiar favourites routinely making their way to the table. Truffle egg mayonnaise is a typical sandwich filling, while you might find a strawberry choux or a French Canele on your top tier.
Price: Traditional afternoon tea at the Corinthia Hotel costs £55 per person, with the option to add champagne for an additional £10. Finger sandwiches, scones with homemade preserves and sweet delacacies are all in included, as well as your choice of their bespoke tea blends.
