A luxury London hotel is now offering vegan afternoon tea with all the traditional trimmings – and it looks delicious.
The Egerton House Hotel, in Knightsbridge, has just launched a vegan menu including scones, freshly cut sandwiches and a selection of sweet treats, that has been created specifically with vegans in mind and is available all of the time.
That means if you’re vegan and fancy a spot of spontaneous luxury, you don’t have to request the menu over the phone, and can simply book your table in advance to avoid disappointment and enjoy!
The comprehensive new menu features a choice of fine leaf teas, plus homemade vegan cakes including an iced chocolate brownie, vanilla and coconut sponge, lemon drizzle cake, a fruit and custard tartlet and a vanilla cupcake.
The menu’s freshly cut sandwiches feature vegan fillings such as:
- Grilled vegetables
- Guacamole and rocket
- Cucumber and margarine
- Tomato and olive tapenade on sun-dried tomato bread
And of course, afternoon tea wouldn’t be complete without freshly home-baked scones. Both plain and fruit vegan scones are available and served with a selection of preserves.
The hotel also offers traditional afternoon tea, vegetarian afternoon tea and gluten-free afternoon tea, meaning there’s plenty of options to satisfy your non-vegan pals.
What does it cost?
The spread will set you back £40 per person, but for the peace of mind of knowing all courses are 100% free from animal products, we’d say it’s worth it.
Where can I find it?
The Egerton House Hotel is located at 17-19 Egerton Terrace, London, SW3 2BX.
Whilst a vegan afternoon tea is not new in London as there are several other venues that will happily swap out their regular sarnies for vegan alternatives if you make a request in advance, it’s great to see that one of the “top 10 best reviewed hotels within London” has a fully vegan menu option!
