About

Afternoon Tea Awards 2019 - Commended

Award_Logo2019

Enjoy a Midsummer Night's Dream Afternoon Tea in the Swan at The Globe. Indulge in a selection of treats inspired by the play and worthy of the fairy queen herself.

The tea includes a collection of sweet and savoury delights, many of which can be traced back to the food and characters seen in the play. The menu features pea flower, which is the flower from which Oberon's love potion is squeezed, interfering with the lovers' fates throughout the play, apricots, which Titania feeds to Bottom when she is cast under the potion's spell, and mulberries, the tree under which Pyramus and Thisbe agree to meet in the play within a play.

The tea is served on bespoke crockery reflecting the themes of the play, specially designed by illustrator Annika Wester.

However, at Swan, Afternoon Tea doesn't have to mean sweetness and light. Their Gentleman's Tea is a feast of savoury tea-time treats including Legbar scotch eggs, fish finger sandwiches and potted salmon. And it's not just for gentlemen!

Swan at The Globe is located in the heart of Bankside, just a stone's throw away from Borough Market and London Bridge.
