A day of treats....pt2

The Savoy is one of the nicest and glamorous hotels in London. It has become one of my most favourite over the years which is why when we started discussing where to celebrate Mary's 70th birthday this was at the top of my list.
The Savoy mixes that old school glamour of the Hollywood years and British class.
On arrival you can't help be swept away by the beautiful art deco surroundings, the perfectly tailored doormen and the luxury cars and taxis sweeping up the drive. Even with the drizzle of rain we couldn't help but be swept away by it all.
As we entered the revolving doors you are swept into a different world, away from the hustle & bustle of London to a world of glamour, peace, and made to feel very special.
Tea is served in the Thames foyer, under a stunning Art Deco glass domed ceiling, complete with winter gazebo, serenaded by a pianist and a baby grand piano. Even with the hotel being busy, there is a feeling of calm and peace. A credit to the staff & team who deliver amazing service and make you feel very special.
The tea has many servings... Sandwiches, Scones, pastries and sliced cake, all complimented by a huge pot of tea!... The sandwiches were a selection of smoked & poached salmon, cucumber & tomato, coronation chicken, ham, and egg & Japanese caviar. The scones which just melt in the mouth were complimented with thick Cornish cream, raspberry jam & lemon curd.
The pastry tray was a feast for the senses, I chose pineapple cheesecake, chocolate torte and a raspberry & earl grey macaron.
We passed on the cake trolley as we were all stuffed, but all looked delicious. Prior to the pastry tray The waitress had picked up that we were celebrating a birthday and presented her with a little birthday plate, complete with candle!
We all had a fabulous afternoon a perfect treat, service and surroundings were delightful.
