Once home to Queen Elizabeth — when the address was 145 Piccadilly — the iconic hotel has always been synonymous with Buckingham Palace. Taking inspiration from its royal heritage, newly appointed Head Pastry Chef Radoslav Georgiev has created The Royal Afternoon Tea menu.
Underpinned by InterContinental London Park Lane’s royal roots, the savoury selection features a Scottish lobster and saffron aioli open sandwich, alongside an array of classic finger sandwiches. Plain and raisin buttermilk scones are served with Devonshire clotted cream and a regularly changing homemade British fruit preserve. The cakes and pastries take inspiration from the Queen's travels around the Commonwealth, and include a Malibu coconut delice and an organic cherry and tonka bean slice. To finish, there’s a piece of the Queen’s favourite chocolate biscuit cake, which she shares with her grandchildren.
Naturally, there are plenty of high-quality loose leaf teas to choose from, and for celebrations (or just because), the Royal Afternoon Tea can be accompanied by a glass of R de Ruinart Champagne.
Located in Mayfair, the luxurious InterContinental London Park Lane offers a classic British experience – it’s the perfect place to reconnect with friends and family after lockdown.
