Park Lane Afternoon Tea

On sats me, Jones, Sweeney and Burney hit the park lane hotel for a spot of afternoon tea

Accompanied by a harpist playing Lionel Richie (!) we started with finger sandwiches of coronation chicken, smoked salmon, egg and roast beef and horseradish

Pretty nice, not quite sure about the raisins in the bread of the chicken sanger though....

Goes without saying we opted for the Art Deco tea which included prosecco (my "not drinking for two weeks" mantra lasted all of two hours then....)

The scones with cream and jams were the defo highlight. Particularly for me and Swe who are big fans of 'rustic baking'.

We were full by the patisserie stage but managed to pick our way through most of it.

I attempted to stuff down this banana bread with cream icing and rather interesting gold medallion, during which the harpist played happy birthday twice to old people who's "birthdays" it was. Hmm.... Likely tale. They were presented with a cake - we missed a trick godammit.

Yet another nice, grown up weekend for me. Christ I'll be getting married next.
