A Milestone In the Art of the Afternoon Tea

To say that The Milestone is serious about the time-honoured ritual of afternoon tea is something of an understatement. Tea time has been refined here into an art form, a veritable feast for the senses. The atmosphere is cosy but smart, the service attentive, the tea and coffee are free flowing and best of all, the selection of sandwiches cakes and pastries is nothing less than scrumptious. Scones are ordered at your leisure and cooked to order, so they arrive hot and tasty.  On a recent visit we particularly loved the chicken & mayonnaise sandwiches rolled in almonds – so good! If there’s something you particularly like, tell them and another will arrive on your plate. There are even cute little Milestone “doggy bag” boxes for those you can’t quite finish.

What a treat to sip your tea and gaze out of the stone mullioned windows over Kensington Gardens. Younger guests needn’t feel left out – there’s a a Little Prince and Princess Themed Tea on offer. Kids can even decorate their cupcakes when you give the pastry chef a day’s notice in advance. There’s even a Gentlemen’s Afternoon tea (returning in February by popular demand) which serves mini home made pork pies and Cornish pasties among the traditional sweet treats, washed down with a flight of ale or whisky to go along with your tea.
