The Kensington's Afternoon Tea is served in the comfort of the hotel's recently refurbished and redesigned spaces. Its fabulous interconnected drawing rooms and the hotel's restaurant located on the ground floor, are ideal for Afternoon Tea and are more akin to a glamorous private residence, offering the perfect relaxed and stylish space to enjoy the great British tradition of Afternoon Tea.
Executive Chef Steven Gibbs, formerly of Hix and The Ivy, has worked closely with his pastry team to create his take on both a classic as well as gluten free Afternoon Tea for those with allergies or seeking a lighter offering. Each tea is accompanied with a selection of fragrant, fair trade loose teas from Rare Tea Company, sourced directly from the greatest tea gardens in the world, as well as delicious buttermilk scones, baked fresh daily, served with strawberry jam and Devonshire clotted cream. If you wish to truly indulge, add a glass or two of Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut NV.
The classic Afternoon Tea features a delicious selection of sandwiches including potted Argyle smoked salmon & creme fraiche; roast Devon Red chicken with cranberry; cucumber & cream cheese; egg mayonnaise & cress. The sweet section features apple & vanilla mousse crumble; blackberry Eton Mess; coconut rum macaron; Coffee opera cake; bitter chocolate & raspberry choux and freshly baked buttermilk scones with strawberry jam & Devonshire clotted cream.
