Afternoon Tea at Harrods

Harrods has been arguably the most famous department store in the world since it opened 150 years ago. Whether you go for food and drink, clothes or jewellery, Harrods caters for everyone.

































The store delivers high quality branded food from all over the world and has many food stalls and restaurants showcasing multi-cultural cuisines.

A popular haunt for tourists and locals alike is the Georgian restaurant where Afternoon Tea is very highly recommended. It delivers what all traditional afternoon teas has to offer such as classic finger sandwiches with an array of different fillings, cakes and scones. In addition the restaurant offers a collection of fragrant teas from the traditional English breakfast to Russian Caravan. Click on the link below to look at the menu

 People might assume that because of the name, Harrods will be expensive. To some extent it is, depending what you want and where you go to eat but in my opinion the afternoon tea is set at a very reasonable price of £29 (without the champagne).


The restaurant is very relaxed, with a pianist playing classical songs but now and again he'll cheekily plays modern music such as One Direction with a twist. The staff were very hospitable and they are more than happy to replenish your food and drink but in all honesty the richness of it all,  you will only need two rounds in total depending what you want again.


The sandwiches, cakes and scones were all beautifully presented on a stand. More importantly though they all went down a treat.

















Harrods offered a brilliant personal touch to the dining experience in which they surprised my nan with a selection of cakes on a plate with happy birthday written in chocolate accompanied with a glass of champagne. It certainly was the icing on the cake (pardon the pun, terrible I know).



I have been a couple of times now and I must say I haven't been let down and the standards has always been high. I would love to try and have afternoon tea at another high end place such as the Ritz e.t.c. just to compare and see what it is like. I would definitely recommend going to afternoon tea at Harrods at least once. It is good value for money for the service and food that you're getting. Besides everyone is allowed to treat themselves now and again.
