July brings the long awaited British summer sunshine and of course the excitement of the Wimbledon tennis. And with all that talk of strawberries and cream, our thoughts can’t help but turn to those lovely fresh afternoon teas. We all deserve a little indulgence from time to time, so why not treat yourself to the ultimate luxury, the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Afternoon Tea at Claridge’s. After all, it’s only once a year.
Claridges Afternoon Tea – The Menu
An afternoon tea at Claridge’s is one of life’s indulgent luxuries. It’s worth the trip to London even if you’re not there for the tennis. Their themed teas are exquisite and their Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Afternoon Tea menu is no exception. Serving tempting sweets treats such as Pistachio and Raspberry Tart, Tainori Salted Caramel and of course strawberries and cream, together with a choice from an impressive selection of 24 teas, including traditional English, herbal infusions and rarer blends for the more adventurous amongst us, this is one occasion not to be missed.
Include a chilled glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut or Rosé or Pimms Royale to top off the experience.
Top Class Service
Not only is the menu mouthwateringly delicious I can speak from experience that the service is truly exceptional. Whether you’re lucky enough to be a regular visitor, or it’s a one-off treat you will be made to feel like royalty without exception. Informal, smart casual dress is a must, however, to be honest, a lot of people do dress up for the event.
Don’t worry about allergies either, I have a nut allergy, and I can say Claridge’s have got this under control to the finest detail. Instead of being made to feel like a nuisance when you’re eating out, Claridge’s make it completely stress-free, preparing sandwiches and cakes in a nut-free environment and where the cakes do include nuts, they provide you with a delicious alternative.
