Time for Tea.....The Playboy Club, London

Hello there,

Welcome back to another afternoon tea post from Tea With Me and Friends....this week we are sharing with you a recent visit to somewhere we have visited a couple of times before...but we always have a good time so we keep heading back! It might be something to do with the tea-riffic teapot cocktails....

Or maybe it's something to do with the scrummy afternoon tea treats, which includes their iconic bunny ears.......

Or perhaps it's the excellent service, which is always friendly and welcoming? Whatever it is....The Playboy Club in London have got it right with their afternoon tea with a with "a playful twist and a tail". Afternoon tea is served between 5-7pm Tuesday to Saturday in Salvatore's Bar.

The tea costs just £30 per person and includes a teapot cocktail, there are four alcoholic and one non-alcoholic cocktail to pick from....all with a scrummy tea base.

The savoury selection is always quite impressive and substantial....

On this occasion we enjoyed a crusty baguette filled with roast beef and horseradish, along with a cream cheese and salmon bellini....

There were also lovely finger sandwiches (with no crusts in sight), made on fresh granary bread and filled with egg and thinly sliced asparagus...

And finally my favourite....which we have enjoyed before and I was pleased to see again....the bruchetta....toasted bread....lots of tomatoes and balsamic...scrummy....

There are no scones served with this afternoon tea, but to be honest we never really miss them. 

This is a contemporary tea served in a contemporary environment... I think it might feel a bit odd to sit in the bar dressing our scones while others sip on their cocktails!

The sweets on offer are also filling enough that scones are not really required....

This time we enjoyed a lovely piece of carrot cake, a vanilla macaroon, some strawberries and cream and a rather scrummy chocolate mousse cake, complete with chocolate bunny ears.

Everything served was fresh and of a good size. The flavours were well balanced and everything went well together. A very enjoyable sweet plate and end to our afternoon tea adventure.

I particularly enjoyed the chocolate mousse cake, the bottom part was sponge, the top chocolate mousse. It was decadent, without being too rich and looked super cute too....

No extras are offered....but if they were I'm not sure you could fit them in anyway! All in all a lovely afternoon tea experience - perfect for enjoying with a group of friends!
