Afternoon Tea at Mercure Hotel

My friend and I had an bought an offer on afternoon tea at Mercure hotel. If this is your type of thing, there are always discounts online for afternoon tea in London so keep your eyes peeled. The hotel staff were very accommodating, upon arrival we were given a glass of champagne (my friend chose orange juice as an alternative) and were shown our seats. We decided to seat ourselves on the sofas and could see other couplets enjoying their afternoon tea across the tables.

The whole experience was great, staff were friendly, the atmosphere was how I liked it. Low lit rooms, clean and very modern. The food was good, we were provided what you would normally expect from afternoon tea. Small cute sandwiches, scones with jam and butter, finger sized desserts and a wide selection of teas to choose from. I was so full up after, it surprised me as I didn't think it would be as filling.
