The Athenaeum Afternoon TeaThe Athenaeum Hotel in Mayfair is renowned for its afternoon tea having previously been awarded the Tea Guild's prestigious Top London Afternoon Tea accolade. Now that the Galvin Brothers have taken over, serving finger sandwiches and scones in their British restaurant, Galvin at The Athenaeum, we suspect that the standard has been kept suitably high. Their modern take on British afternoon tea sees them serve a selection of sandwiches, scones and sweet treats made from the very best British ingredients. Expect smoked salmon from Severn & Wye, Cumbrian ham, Kentish strawberries and Devonshire clotted cream. Diners can also opt for the Gentleman's Afternoon Tea, Royal Afternoon Tea or, to make the occasion extra special, the Bottomless Bubbles Afternoon Tea. You are dining in Mayfair, after all.

*Prices correct as of February 2018.
