Importantly, our new Royal Afternoon Tea menu also welcomes Meghan Markle to the royal family. Reflecting Meghan and Prince Harry’s choice of wedding cake flavour, we’re serving organic lemon and elderflower macaroons.
We serve all these goodies with a sense of fun, characterised in dainty cakes topped with crowns and a strawberry Eton Mess finished with a sophisticated chocolate stamped with both The Athenaeum logo and the Queen’s head. The whimsical crockery is by Ali Miller, a fellow Londoner and a quintessentially British artist. With stalwarts from her collection and other pieces made bespoke for our Royal Afternoon Tea, the teapots, cake stands, plates, cups and saucers feature illustrations of butterflies and decks of cards emerging from teapot spouts, and other fantastical imagery.
For an added sparkle of all things royal, have a glass of champagne to accompany our Royal Afternoon Tea – make it a glass of Bollinger to complete the occasion full of esteemed Royal Warrant producers.
Raise a glass, or a cup of tea, and enjoy an occasion fit for a sovereign at The Athenaeum.
