High Tea at Om Nom

Om Nom has long held a reputation for its theatrical desserts and signature cocktails and this modern twist on high tea doesn’t disappoint, with both savouries and desserts best described as edible art. Adding to the theatre is Om Nom itself – with its moody lighting, dark sheer curtains and chic interior, this vibe is much more cocktail hour than ladies who lunch.

The Hotel Windsor

Afternoon Tea at The Windsor
Afternoon Tea at The Windsor

Drawing inspiration from Bridgerton, the Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea at The Hotel Windsor looks to the Regency Era London and the heavily laden dinner tables of the time. Start with a three tiered silver stand of delicate savoury delights, then a dessert spread of cakes, petit fours, entremets and an impressive Bombe Alaska of lemon curd, raspberry gem and Italian meringue, brought to your table. There’s a chocolate dipping plate with house made madeleines, marshmallows and strawberries, and a cheese plate of brie & cheddar with quince paste and muscatels to finish.
