The Tea Guild's Top London Afternoon Tea 2011 Award has been announced and the winner is .....


Congratulations to Claridges on the well deserved Award.

In case you are wondering how the Tea Guild choose the winner of Top London Afternoon Tea, they use the following criteria to base their decision on -

The anonymous judges award points for the variety, flavour and knowledge of the teas offered, together with the quality of food, service, d├ęcor, ambience, and presentation.

Claridges won after impressing Tea Guild judges with its exceptional service, great quality tea and extensive knowledge of the staff.. The Foyer (where afternoon tea is served) gained a near perfect score from The Tea Guild's inspectors. The judges praised it for its tasteful art deco style and fine furnishings, as well as friendly and efficient staff and excellent selection of scones, sandwiches and cakes. Claridge's surpassed expectations with an excellent selection of teas, and knowledgeable and friendly staff who excelled firstly in advising customers on the choice of tea blends on offer and then serving those teas perfectly. The judges concluded that Claridge's offered "a very enjoyable and relaxing tea experience in splendid surroundings."

I really love Claridges, so much so I have been for Afternoon Tea twice. I am so happy that the Tea Guild agree with me. You can read my review here.

Once again congratulations Claridges on being named Top London Afternoon Tea 2011


  1. It is wish to have afternoon tea and Claridges would be my venue of choice, sadly when I lived half an hour away on the slow train I was to teenagery to want to and now I am 200 miles away it seems like a bit of a slog for a cup of tea and a slice of cake! Jan x

  2. Ah Jan, that is where you are so wrong... :-)
    It is not JUST a cup of tea and slice of cake ;-)

    I remember when my mother in law said that when we told her we were treating her to it..she soon changed her mind.

    If you ever do fancy doing it, I would glad accompany you for a great chat and first class afternoon tea experience xx

  3. Wow, it looks great. I would love to go one day to experience this very English thing :)
