If you’ve read my London Winter Bucket List, you’ll know that I wanted to try a “festive” afternoon tea because there is no combination better than “food” and “Christmas”.
You may also be aware if you follow me on Twitter that I have two work buddies who are also bloggers, so we jumped at the chance to make a booking a B Bakery in Covent Garden for one night after work!
I’ll stop nattering now and get on to the good stuff…
Formally know as “Bridget’s Bakery”, B Bakery is famous for it’s Afternoon Tea bus tours which, if you hadn’t guessed, involve eating a selection of Afternoon Tea classic foods whilst touring around London on a big red bus – could you do something more quintessentially English?
My friend Charlie has written about her experience on the bus here if you’re interested. I really like the idea and it would be great for someone who is only in the city for a few days but wants to sample the English tradition of Afternoon Tea whilst still being able to continue their sightseeing!
However, if you’re not a fan of eating whilst in motion (not an issue for me, I will eat wherever and whenever I can), you’ll be glad to hear that the have a cute little bakery in Covent Garden.
From 15 November 2016 – 5 January 2017, B Bakery offer a “Christmas Afternoon Tea” and the menu features some great twists on the usual afternoon tea classics. The turkey sandwich was to die for (who doesn’t love a good turkey sandwich?!) and there wasn’t one thing on the menu that we didn’t enjoy. I only removed the salmon from the smoked salmon blinis as I don’t eat fish – otherwise everything was perfect!
The only thing that could have improved the menu is something that truly makes you think of a good Christmas dinner like pigs in blankets maybe? I am obsessed with those tasty little buggers.
There was a wide selection of teas and coffees, including one Christmas Tea which is cinnamon based – yum! But of course I opted for the hot chocolate which was great! As well as a hot drink, a glass of fresh orange juice and a glass of prosecco are included in the price!
For £33 on a weekday and £36 on a weekend, this isn’t the most expensive afternoon tea experience available, you get a lot of food/drink and it will definitely get you in the Christmas spirit – there’s something about pulling a Christmas cracker and plonking a silly hat on my head (ridiculous selfie below) that makes Christmas seem real – so if you are in London and want to try something new, I’d definitely give this a go!
I’m an avid fan of afternoon teas and it was great to try something a bit different to the usual fare. Have you visited B Bakery before? What did you think?
