Wowcher Reviews Café in the Crypt

cryptbanner

I’ve been to my fair share of food establishments. Like most people who live in London, I love trying new places and discovering hidden gems across the city, but despite these culinary crusades, I have never munched my way through sandwiches and cake at a place with ‘crypt’ in its name. It’s unique. It’s interesting. It’s free food. So here I am, accompanied by Josh and Anina, undertaking the very difficult task of eating afternoon tea …

Wowcher Reviews The Waldorf Hilton

Wowcher-Reviews-the-Walforf-Hilton

I have been for afternoon tea before. I’ve slathered scones with jam and tipped tea into china cups. I’ve felt the excitement of tiers of treats being laid before you and playing a game of ‘guess the filling of the sandwich’.

Mention the term ‘afternoon tea’ and sweet fancies come to mind; floral doilies, clinking cups and moreish nibbles wheeled on squeaking dessert trolleys. Think again, dahling. Nowadays humble tearooms have evolved into stylish hotspots. Asian fusion, gluten-free, decadent dining and cosy abodes litter London, offering both a unique and customised afternoon tea experience. And as you may expect, choosing between them is difficult. So to …

I believe that is called ‘Al Fresco’ – Afternoon Tea @ The Thistle Hotel

THISTLE1

Although I cannot in full honesty say that the sun was in the sky, the fluctuating London weather did not in any way subtract from our excursion to the Thistle Hotel. ‘Luxury’ and ‘decadence’ were just two of the words that spring to mind, accompanied only by the phrase ‘attentive customer service’. With two locations tucked away amidst the tourist hotspot that is Piccadilly Circus, …
