Afternoon Tea That Won't Break the Bank!

Last time we were in London we had afternoon tea at Brown's in Covent Garden. It's a lovely restaurant that has wood floors, skylights, excellent service and a light, non-stuffy atmosphere. The price was reasonable and you could pick and choose what you wanted to eat; scones & clotted cream, cakes, sandwiches, etc. Very ala carte! It isn't the fru-fru of Harrod's or the Ritz but you won't have to mortgage your house to pay for it either. We liked it so much that we went back for dinner later on that day and it was delicious. I wish we would have found it sooner during our stay in London and we'll definitely go back next time we're in town.

Thanks. I've put it on my list for my next visit to London - I don't know when, but I know I'll go back!

We'll plan to visit Brown's in the Fall; during our several day visit in London following Rick's Heart of France tour. We appreciate your suggestion.

Look into The Wallace Collection museum restaurant a few Blocks away from marble arch.
Afternoon tea is 18 pounds, beautiful domed restaurant and the museums collection is at no entrance charge. A great find.

Thanks for mentioning this. Will have tea there when I am in London.

You said it was better than Harrod's. I do not doubt it. I personally was disappointed with tea at Harrod's.
