Afternoon tea at Cafe Royal, Regent Street

I recently visited Cafe Royal for afternoon tea as a treat for getting to the end of term! I booked the trip online on afternoontea.co.uk. I scrolled through all of the fabulous pictures and I have to say this one caught my eye. There is currently a deal on for high society afternoon tea with champagne for £65 until September 30th. (For 2 people instead of £110 Click here for more details)
I have to say it was worth every penny! The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. We went on a Saturday at 1pm and it was lovely and quiet. There was a pianist playing light jazz music and we were treated very well indeed.
Here is the menu we had:
Amuse Bouche

Low Sidecar muffin (ana)
Apple, goat's cheese and Fisherman's friends 
Selection of Tea Sandwiches

Coronation chicken
Cucumber, cream cheese and red onion ketchup
Mary Rose prawn cocktail, smoked Spanish paprika and baby gem lettuce
Café Royal "Wilde" salmon
Wild boar, crackling, pickled apple and caraway bun
Chorizo, caramelised white onion and thyme "Wellington"
Palette Cleanser
Fruit tea and Baylands marshmallow (ana) 

"Profile 66" chocolate
"Opéra 1865"
Seasonal flower pot
Tea macaroon
Strawberry rose "Regent"
Raspberry ripple pavlova 
Traditional gold raisin and plain scones
Clotted cream lemon curd
Strawberry preserve

Fruit cake
Cazzette nut and butter cream
Blueberry and poppy seed (GF) 
A glass of Veuve Clicquot
As well as the sandwiches, scones and pretty deserts on the tray, you could choose from any extra cakes on the trolley. I couldn't fit anymore food in so there was plenty to eat. They had 29 teas to choose from! I opted for Earl grey and a glass of champagne. A definite recommendation if you are in London before September!

Thanks for reading
