Early this year I enjoyed Afternoon Tea at the Royal Horseguards hotel, you may remember the Tea & a Tour at The Royal Horseguards post. When talking to Head Chef Ben Purton about how I would love to do it again with my daughter, he stated  they also serve a mini tea. I couldn’t wait to visit again with Eva. She had no idea what Afternoon tea was, but I told her it was to do with eating tiny sandwiches and lots of cakes. As you can imagine…she was quite excited by the prospect.

We met with Ben in reception and he took us over to our table. The time between sitting down and waiting for food can be quite an impatient affair for a 4 year old – but she was kept busy with goody bag filled with activities and stickers. Eva picked an apple juice and I went for the delicious strawberry and cream tea I had last time.

Then each of our 3 tier plates arrived. The bottom layer with the section of sandwiches. I had a mix of cucumber, chicken fillings and savoury bites. Eva had chocolate and strawberry jam sandwiches and mini versions of mine. The middle plate had the jam and clotted cream in preparation for the warm scones to be brought out.

The pièce de résistance for both of us was the top plates filled with sweet goodness. I probably took a million and one photos of Eva’s sweet treats – the cute touch was her name on the fairy cake and heart shortbread biscuit. Like any good blogger child (or friend/relative) she knows to be patient until the food is well photographed.

It was a perfect afternoon for a mother/daughter date and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I will 100% be bringing Eva back again and would be a fabulous idea for a tiny persons birthday party – which the Royal Horseguards do offer.
