Dalloway Terrace Afternoon Tea, Bloomsbury
Coming up to Spring for me it always seems like Afternoon Tea season, and how better to celebrate longer, lighter days than with a special themed afternoon tea. Perfect for a Sunday or a special birthday treat for friends or family!
London’s best afternoon teas can be found easily in one place on Bookatable, you can also view menus and book here and pay after you dine, which is super easy! It’s perfect to find the most quirky high teas, that spin a twist on the traditional.
I went down to the beautiful Dalloway Terrace, at The Bloomsbury Hotel, this sunny Saturday to indulge in their yummy afternoon tea in front of their gorgeous, instagrammable canopy of giant banana leaves and bright bursts of fuschia, orchids and passion flowers. Taking inspiration from The Bloomsbury Set’s Leonard Woolf’s novel ‘The Village in the Jungle’, the terrace has once again been transformed into a tropical paradise to reflect the tropical beauty of a wild jungle oasis in Sri Lanka.
The idyllic space is now a wild jungle oasis in the capital, the perfect place to escape the streets of central London. The transformation features silk foliage stems creating a luscious overgrown jungle canopy, complete with an abundance of the giant iconic leaves of the banana plant and lavishly adorned with bright bursts of fuchsia provided by mesmerizing orchids and passion flower.
Their new seasonal Afternoon Tea is laced with Sri Lankan influences including some special tea options which have been added to the already extensive range and some incredily tropical dessert options such as Mango & Coriander Tart with Pink Peppercorn Meringue, Lychee & Coconut Cake and Pineapple & Red Chilli Terrine. The savoury offerings also include savoury cute finger sandwiches as well as warm, freshly baked scones, always a highlight for me personally. If you're after a sophisticated Afternoon Tea with a touch of luxury in Central London, this is the perfect spot.
The menu is priced at £40 per person, with gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options available. You can also add a glass of champagne for an additional charge. Book Dalloway Terrace’s Afternoon Tea easily here.
