Afternoon Tea at Harrods -- Ariel’s Must Visit

I recently went for afternoon tea in The Georgian Restaurant at Harrods for a friends birthday. It was lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 

It cost £39.00, there are cheaper afternoon teas out there but it was excellent and you got a number of courses and a few little extras. 

The décor is lovely and there is a live pianist on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, the dress code is smart causal.

You can select from a number of speciality teas, I went for the rose petal tea first and then switched to blackberry towards the end.

You firstly get finger sandwiches and a gruyère cheese tart, with my personal favourite sandwich being the artichoke one. 

Next they provided fruit and plain scones with a selection of condiments; blackberry jam, clotted cream, lemon curd and rose jam. 

 The rose jam was particularly good and I did try to find in the food hall downstairs but much to my dismay they had none.

You then had a selection of small cakes and pastries followed by a Harrods trifle. 

The trifle tasted amazing I have never been a huge fan of trifle but I could eat buckets of these ones and they were presented so beautifully.

Additionally because it was a friend’s birthday they gave us a complimentary brownie and fruit with a candle in. 

The service was flawless and everyone was extremely polite and nice. Nothing you asked was too much and you felt very welcome.

I would highly recommend visiting for a special occasion or for a nice treat. 

The great thing about going here is that it is excellently located in the Harrods department store.

Which is perfect for walking off all the cake while having a look in one of the most iconic department stores in the world.

I would definitely recommend having a look in the gadget section and also the toy section, you are never too old. 

The food hall is definitely worth a look as well when you feel slightly less full!

Thanks for reading!
