Hello there lovely readers!
Aaah the Ritz...well I couldn't very well do an afternoon tea series on my blog & NOT include the infamous & quintessentially English institution that is "Tea at The Ritz" now could I? ;)
The world famous Ritz hotel in Mayfair is well known for its award winning afternoon tea affair & tis one that is on many afternoon tea fans 'must try' list including mine! So of course I was excited to finally be able to attend for mumma bears birthday last year. (yes its taken me THIS long to write about it...bad form Aysh)
Our reservation was booked for 1pm during the weekday, yet despite this it was still completely full! I'd wager bookings have to be made a good few months prior for the Ritz which makes sense. We arrived at the hotel after a lovely stroll down Bond Street perusing the shops & were led to the breathtakingly & beautifully decorated Palm Court dining room where we would be partaking in our afternoon tea. There is a smart dress code at the Ritz, so no jeans or trainers folks!
