Tea Time & Beyond: A Posh Nosh Crawl Through London

Posh nosh awaits those seeking indulgent eats in the heart of London, England. From brunch and tea time to dinner, and everything else in-between, there’s a slice of proper English fare you can find in these luxury retreats across the cosmopolitan city. Even if you’re not staying on property, these spots welcome outside guests to soak up the ambiance and stellar culinary offerings.

11 Cadogan Garden

The iconic luxury hotel is a five-star gem situated between Knightsbridge and Chelsea. Built in 1887 by Lord Chelsea, the property once consisted of four separate Victorian townhouses. Today, 11 Cadogan Gardens offers a peaceful retreat from city chaos in an unassuming residential neighborhood.

During your visit, the thing to order is the Champagne Tea. Although tea time has been a staple at 11 Cadogan Gardens since January 2017, Le Cordon Bleu-trained Chef Tom Urbanski has spearheaded the revamp and fare offered; expect to taste traditional and classic dishes using quality and local ingredients. Along with your glass of Lallier Champagne, sit down to a three-tiered wonder that will keep you satiated between mealtimes. It includes a selection of homemade sandwiches, with standouts including chicken infused with fresh tarragon, and Scottish, oak-smoked salmon with caper mayonnaise. And we cannot forget about the life-changing, homemade scones; tall and lofty, the hand-held wonders are crusty on the outside with a sweet and velvety interior. The best thing to do is to slather the fluffy treats with homemade Cornish clotted cream. If you’re still thirsty, wash everything down with teas by Jing Company—opt for the heady herbaceousness of Oolong Phoenix Honey Orchid Tea or the Ceylon Chai which tastes like spiced Christmas with every sip.
