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!
