TLTB loves to celebrate local products and the athenaeum does just that with its Afternoon Tea created with honey farmed in the centre of London, from hives in the royal parks.
The creative honey-themed menu includes finger sandwiches with Honey Roasted Ham, fresh scones and crumpets served with Regents Park Honey and pastries including Honeycomb Marquis, Honey Mille Feuille, Lavender and Honey Macaroons. A glass of honey fizz can be added to the menu and guests are given a pot of athenaeum honey to take away as a memento.
The athenaeumʼs Honey-Tea is priced at £39 for two people including a glass of honey fizz. There are 3 sittings for tea: 12:30pm, 3pm and 5:30pm daily.
Not a fan of honey? During the summer the hotel will also be serving a regal afternoon tea to celebrate the Queen's coronation and the birth of the new royal baby. In association with Ian Pelham-Turner and Helena Chard, Royal Photographers, and Royal Life magazine the hotel will host 'The Royal Child' exhibition
