Afternoon Tea

Bridgerton at The Lanesborough

 

On good authority from Lady Whistledown, a social event not to be missed is coming to the ton this season...

Dust off your Regency best, as we launch London’s first, exclusive Bridgerton-themed afternoon tea. The latest in our innovative series of seasonal afternoon teas, the limited-edition menu pays homage to the Regency era; a time of great revelling and high style, of elegant parties, balls, and grand dinners, with a contemporary twist.

Setting the scene, the Bridgerton Afternoon Tea takes place in The Lanesborough’s richly decorated dining room, naturally illuminated during the day by a domed glass roof. A Regency icon, beneath the original sky dome there is bas-relief artwork meticulously cast from 250 different mouldings, and Wedgwood china mounted on the walls, evoking a sense of Regency neo-classical grandeur.

Carefully crafted by our pastry team, the menu pays tribute to the key families in Bridgerton and is composed of a selection of finger sandwiches and brioche sliders, delectable scones, cream and jam, and five signature sweet treats.

Served exclusively until 10th November 2022. Make haste, and secure your booking – it would be quite the scandal to miss it…

The Pall Mall Cocktail

Inspired by the original Regency Gin Punch, the Pall Mall cocktail is a refreshing tipple composed of Hendrick's gin and Graham's Blend No 5 white port, balanced with citrus and subtle sweetness. The delectable concoction is served in an elegant high glass teacup, with a tea strainer filled with dried hibiscus flowers to infuse the drink with a pinkish colour.  The finishing touch is a floating lotus flower – the national flower of India and nod to the Sharma family.  A non-alcoholic option is also offered, a tropical punch prepared with Atopia non-alcoholic spirit, ginger, rhubarb and hedgerow berry mixed with London Essence roasted pineapple soda, lychee, passionfruit and citrus.

Sweet Treats

Our patisserie creations, crafted by our award-winning pastry team in collaboration with the show makers Netflix and Shondaland, each tell their own story through distinct flavour profiles and their unique presentation to the ton. Each pays tribute to a key character or family in Bridgerton; from Queen Charlotte and this season's diamond, Edwina Sharma, to Viscount Anthony and the Bridgerton family, and of course Lady Whistledown herself.
