Afternoon tea at the Drawing Rooms, Ampersand hotel

Recently, I’ve discovered Lime & Tonic and with Lady Dee in town from New York, I used the opportunity to try their wares and booked us in for a Christmas afternoon tea at the Ampersand hotel.

What. a. delight.  The hotel is only inches away from South Ken Station and teas are served in the Drawing rooms.  The rooms are a quirky wonder, prints of zoo animals peering out from cocktail glasses, mix of vintage and contemporary furniture, relaxed and funky, not an ounce of stuffiness in sight.

I think it may well be one of the coolest hotels I’ve ever seen!







We plumped for both the standard & Xmas teas – a festive twist on the Afternoon tea meant the usual tea included Savoury Gougeres, White Choc scones & mince pies in the mix.


The gougeres and tartines were soft, melt-in-the-mouth taste explosions, the scones soft with lashings of jam & cream and the desserts, well the desserts were too many to get through!







For under £20 each and for the volume of food we had, this was a steal!  My verdict: Grab a friend, grab a lot of friends and check it out.

Merry Christmas everyone!
