Afternoon Tea in London?
To honor Father's Day, the Milestone Hotel in London will offer Gentleman's Afternoon Tea. An established tradition at the Milestone, the afternoon tea menu regularly includes tea, champagne, finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with jam and clotted cream, and other pastries. During June a second menu will be added, with flights of whisky and ale; savory finger foods including homemade meat pies, Scotch eggs, toad-in-the-hole, and Cornish pasties, all on a miniature scale; and sweet pastries, with liquor-themed cupcakes, berry tarts, and tortes.
"Although we're calling it Gentleman's Afternoon Tea, the jury is still out on who will be more pleased about this alternative menu- ladies or gentlemen," said Andrew Pike, Milestone general manager.
The Milestone Hotel is ideally situated with impeccable views of Hyde Park, and Kensington Palace and Gardens, and is close to many of London's iconic attractions. The Tea Guild honored the Milestone Hotel with its Award for Excellence in 2012 for its outstanding afternoon tea.
