The Petersham Restaurant Afternoon Tea, £45 pp
Everyone’s favourite posh plant shop and deli now serve afternoon tea. And it’s everything we imagined and more. Served from their restaurant in Covent Garden, The Petersham tea is all about sustainable food.
There’s a real focus on quality, with the finest seasonal ingredients showcasing the best flavours from Italy. The even better news is, it changes regularly, so you don’t need an excuse to visit again. Right now, you can tuck into sweet and savoury dishes including taleggio and truffle on toasted sourdough, farm chicken and sage milk buns, Amalfi lemon and vanilla choux buns, and Rhubarb mascarpone cheesecake.
It’s served in their tree-lined courtyard away from the mayhem of the main square in Covent Garden.
