Sparkling Afternoon Tea With Red Letter Days

Sparkling Afternoon Tea With Red Letter Days

I was recently gifted a Sparkling Afternoon Tea by Red Letter Days. With over 260 venues to choose from, there are plenty of venues to choose around the UK.

I chose to go on a day out to London with a friend where we could enjoy looking around the shops, and treating ourselves to afternoon tea.

Athenaeum Hotel



We chose the Athenaeum Hotel in Mayfair.  I have been here before for dinner many years ago now and always remember their living wall.

Afternoon Tea

I booked our afternoon tea via their reservation number, who emailed me to confirm the booking.  The day before I was emailed again to make sure we were still going to be attending our afternoon tea.

On arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by the doorman who ensured we were safe to enter by monitoring our temperature.  He then escorted us to the check in area.

As we were slightly early, we asked if we could have a drink in the bar while we were waiting. Although not all areas are available due to the current situation.  They still had a nice seating area where we enjoyed a cocktail and chat.

We where then shown to our table and given a menu of their vast list of teas and the menu of the afternoon tea.

All staff were wearing masks and very helpful in recommending teas, and asking if we had any allergies they needed to be aware of.

While we sipped our champagne, our chosen teas arrived and then a beautiful selection of sweet and savoury items to enjoy. Sadly I have no photos as my camera decided to give up on me at that point.

Our Opinion

We both fel safe visiting the hotel and that all staff were courteous and safety aware.  The afternoon tea was amazing and we would definitely return again.
