Scoff & Banter Tea Rooms recently opened on the first floor of the Radisson Blu hotel just off Oxford Street and I was amongst a lucky group of people that were invited to come and test out their prosecco afternoon tea.
Tuesday afternoons don’t really get much better than unlimited glasses of Bottega Gold and gourmet sandwiches. With a tea selection that would make the Mad Hatter go crazy and some of the most incredible canapés I’ve ever feasted on, Scoff & Banter is up there with one of the best afternoon tea’s I’ve had in a long time.
The Rock oysters, scallops, eggs Florentine, lamb chops and lobster bisque were just a few of the hot dishes we got to sample and being a savoury/starter fiend I was over the moon that the tea wasn’t just cakes and scones. Talking of scones though, my favourite were the Cheddar cheese variety and they went ever so well with selection of steak and venison sandwiches we ordered. The croque madam was a runny egg lovers dream come true and the sticky toffee pudding with salted caramel ice cream was an absolute winner.
With mint green and pale pink tea cups, gold polka dot tea pots and perfect champagne flutes I felt like I was in a fairytale and hope everyone gets to experience high tea like that at least once in their lives. Thank you for the invitation and for such a wonderful evening, it was truly magical and delicious and I can’t wait to come back and experience it again some time soon.
