St. James's Hotel & Club offers a historical Afternoon Tea, designed by Executive Chef William Drabble of in-house Michelin Star Restaurant Seven Park Place. Guests will be transported to Victorian times to sample tastes of this period, in keeping with its tradition but with a slight modern-day twist.
Keen to capture these traditions, Drabble has created a selection of sweet treats and sandwiches based on authentic recipes and favourites of Queen Victoria. He was inspired by recipes by the Head Chef at St. James's Club in the early 1800s, Charles Elmé Francatelli, who then went on to be Chief Cook for Queen Victoria in 1840 and later became General Manager.
The Afternoon Tea features highlights from Victorian times, as well as exclusive fine loose tea blends from The East India Tea Company, created especially for the hotel. For those in the mood for something fizzy, St. James's Hotel and Club's finest Champagne is also on offer.
The secret of this intimate and elegant luxury London townhouse hotel lies partly in its unrivalled location, in a quiet cul-de-sac just off St. James's Street in London, near the prestigious Mayfair. It is close to Green Park underground station; the exclusive shops and restaurants of Jermyn Street, the Burlington Arcade, Bond Street, the theatres and nightlife of the West End.
Afternoon Tea is served 3pm to 5:30pm every day
