SquareMeal Review of The Sitting Room at The Capital Hotel (afternoon tea)

Bronze Award

Small but perfectly formed, the Sitting Room at the Capital Hotel offers all the allure of a grand afternoon tea, only on a more intimate scale. Always a foodie destination, this luxurious family-run townhouse hotel maintains lofty gastronomic standards even at teatime. Quirky themed teas pop up occasionally, but the regular offering is also top-drawer: sandwiches are neat crusts-off triangles generously filled with smoked salmon, chicken salad, egg-and-cress or crab mayonnaise; warm home-baked scones are paired with clotted cream, jams and preserves (also made in-house), and cakes might include gooey 'sunken' chocolate cake or dainty saffron egg-custard tart. At £29.50, tea in a top-tier London hotel doesn’t get any more affordable than this. There’s also a choice of Champagnes by the glass (including Jacquard, Ayala and Bollinger) for £39.50, so make like a local and have a quick glass before hitting Sloane Street.

Anytime you want in hidden place!

I went there with my friends on Sunday and I loved the location. It is in Knightsbridge and close to Harrods. You can shop and have some rest with Afternoon Tea at the nice Hotel. What can you expect more? Also, you can book there on last minutes, too. The service was good. The tea tasted lovely. Yet, sandwiches, scones, and pastries are average. If you want to enjoy your time with friends in a nice cozy place, I highly recommend this Hotel.
