So, I did one of those lists of things to do before a big birthday. On my list was going to The Ritz for for afternoon tea. My mum took my grandmother to The Ritz for tea in 1998, so in 2018 I took my mum. Make sure you book in advance and read the dress code, it is quite strict.
We arrive and check our coats. It is glamorous and beautiful with pink marble and high ceilings. There is a pianist playing a grand piano. It is delightful and decadent.
We start with choosing our tea, yes a tea menu…I am in heaven. There are finger sandwiches to start with, followed by an array of little pastries and tarts. Next are scones with clotted cream and jam which are delicious. Just when we think we cannot possibly fit another thing in, the trolley comes around and we choose between cakes from the trolley. Mum and I go for ginger cake which is moist and amazing.
The Ritz is definitely the best afternoon tea I have had. We leave full and content.
My beautiful Nan.
