Over the last couple of years, Afternoon Tea has become one of my top priorities along side working, trying to be healthy and attaining a Performing Career.
I had been reading all year about the Tale As Old As Time tea at The Town House in Kensington (http://townhousekensington.com/tale-as-old-as-time/) and guess what … I managed to get a very last minute booking for a week after my Birthday! Who else better to share this with that my rock, my momma!
We both arrived (me still dosed up on the penicillin) in our finest, and ready to “try the grey stuff” (pardon the pun) but it really really was delicious, and pull up a chair with Lumeriere and pals.
The tea room was exquisite. And the moment we stepped in, we could see the Red Rose in the glass jar, and a big Cosgworth awaiting to Be Our Guest (sorry I can’t help myself!)
They have put so much thought into the details of this experience, the menu is cleverly crafted so every thing you eat is tailored to the wonderful movie. “Beef Ragu, Cheese Souflee” Well it’s all there! It may look like tiny bites, but don’t let this fool you! We ended up taking half of the food home!
“Enough! I’m Done!”
WARNING: If you’re a scone lover, I must state: You will not devour a scrumptious fruit scone, but you will find a number of baguette designed brioche on your tier of delights.
“Marie! The Baguettes! Hurry Up!”
And of course, we couldn’t leave without snapping some photos!
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the movie, or just a good old fashioned Afternoon Tea!
Even though I felt like the Beast, I left feeling like Belle of the Ball!
