We are delighted to present our new menu for Afternoon Tea created by our newly appointed Pastry Chef Jamie Warley.
Available from Friday 15th October, the menu is inspired by Jamie’s travels in France and designed to connect guests with traditional French flavours. Moving away from the classical concept of finger sandwiches, the new menu offers innovative savoury dishes such as French onion soup, croque monsieur and celeriac, truffle and bacon quiche.
The sweet options on offer include Earl grey and coffee choux bun, tarragon and blackberry macaron, and a delightful crème fraiche with pumpkin and maple.
The tasteful menu will be served in the hotel's exquisite Rose Lounge, alongside a selection of exclusive teas and Champagne. Surrounded by subtle pink hues and stunning displays of fragrant roses, guests will be transported to the beautiful landscapes of France while indulging in freshly made delicacies.
Sofitel London St James is proud to pay tribute to France and its inspiring history with this delightful new menu. While afternoon tea is quintessentially British, the act of drinking tea in France dates back to the 17th century when it became a popular activity amongst aristocratic ladies, whilst entertaining in the morning and afternoon.
Afternoon Tea is served from Thursday to Monday, from 12pm to 5pm and priced at £55 per person or £65 per person including a glass of champagne.
