For Christmas (the last one), I was given a voucher for Afternoon Tea For Two at The Ritz in London! It was on my bucket list to go, so this was the best surprise!
The Ritz is so iconic, it is one of the most prestigious hotels in the world! You have to book your Afternoon Tea at least four months in advance as it is so popular! I chose to reserve our table for the end of October, so it was something to look forward to towards the end of the year.
On arrival I was blown away by the decor. The rich gold, and sophisticated decor was breathtaking. I loved the floral centres pieces. The flower palettes were warm, and the designs had the wow factor!
We were made to feel very welcome by all of the staff. It really is a well oiled machine. Everyone knows their job well, and the staff were extremely attentive. I wasn't sure if I would feel out of place, but we were made to feel at ease straight away. I can honestly say it wasn't pretentious at all, and I think this was down to the kind nature of the staff.
I thought the food was absolutely delicious! There was a good variety of sandwich flavours to choose from. At the start they asked if we had any allergies. I told them about my chocolate intolerance, and they kindly provided me with different cakes. The banana cake was out of the world! My favourite to date!
I think I enjoyed the overall experience more than the hubby! For me it was a bucket list tick moment! I had such an enjoyable hour or so, and as a busy mummy I really loved being spoilt rotten and waited on! It was the best treat, and I would highly recommend it!
