Time for Tea.....London Marriott Hotel County Hall

Hello there,

Welcome back to another wonderful guest post from our lovely friend Becca who recently visited London Marriott Hotel County Hall for a friend's Hen Party.

Read on to find out all about Becca's afternoon tea adventure.....

I enjoyed this afternoon tea as part of an afternoon of Hen Party celebrations with a group of friends. The afternoon tea at the London Marriott Hotel County Hall was served in the library lounge in the hotel, which was really nice with gorgeous views of the Thames including Big Ben. Our afternoon tea was booked with an offer that included free flowing champagne during the service.

The tea selection was provided by Twinings and was very cute, the tea menu was displayed in mini jars that you could open to look at or smell the tea leaves before you pick your favourite!

The sandwiches were very tasty! The selection was quite traditional and included salmon, cucumber and cream cheese, egg mayonnaise, ham and mustard and beef and horseradish. The hotel was also able to accommodated my allergies, even though I only informed them about them when we arrived for tea.

Sandwiches and scones!

The scones were lovely and fresh, we had one apple and cinnamon and one cheese scone each - both were served warm and were very scrummy. They were served with the usual clotted cream and jam, but we also had some cream cheese and chives for the savoury scone - yummy!

The cakes were all delicious, my favourite being the coffee macaroon. The lollipop was a tasty chocolate treat with popping candy!

The service we experience during the afternoon was very good! There was a very "lively" group at the tea (remember we all had free flowing bubbles!!) but the management were extremely apologetic and we were given a discount on the tea for the disturbance! 

The Hen within our group was treated to a celebration plate of treats which she was very surprised about and ate all of! We thought this was a lovely touch. After the tea we obviously wanted to take some souvenir pictures and the staff at the hotel were quite happy to take the photos for us and even took part in some of them! We felt this was a great day overall, which we all enjoyed.

Well, doesn't that afternoon tea sound wonderful? A lovely way to spend an afternoon with a group of friends. A traditional afternoon tea at the hotel costs £32.00 per person or if you would like to enjoy a glass of bubbles it will be £38 per person. Contact the hotel directly to enquire about any offers that may be on currently. For more information pop by their website.

A big thank you to Becca for sharing her afternoon tea experience with us. If you would like to appear as a guest blogger and have an afternoon tea to share with us please get in touch, we'd love to hear from you!

Thank you for popping by today,
