Shepherds Bush is quickly becoming a foodie destination—with pop-ups like Little Feast and great indie restaurants like Habanera and Abu Zaad, it’s no surprise that the quintessential high tea can now also be found in Shey-Boo.
There is, however, a twist: forget a twee café with doilies and frills and instead expect a minimalist vibe at the Dorsett Hotel. As you sit under the warm golden glow in the bar area, you’ll find the only traditional element about this Afternoon Tea is the food offering.
Choose from a range of teas or opt for a glass of bubbly and enjoy a wide selection of nibbles. Savory sandwiches with filling such as Coronation chicken and cucumber with cream cheese are made using different flavored and coloured bread. Sweets treats include Eton mess as well as lavender and lemon possets.
To celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday, the Dorsett are offering a FREE Afternoon Tea for residents of Hammersmith and Fulham over the age of 90, so if gran or grandad live in the borough, bring them down for a sophisticated treat.
Afternoon Tea at the Dorsett costs £24.
