After receiving an invitation to afternoon tea at Pantry at 108, I experienced something really interesting. In every conversation I had with people about attending, the response was the same, ‘Oh! I’ve heard it’s really lovely!’
My curiosity was high. Further, the Marylebone area is new to me, so I am in hot pursuit to learn more about what it has to offer.
First, I learned there is a Marylebone High Street, Marylebone Road, and Marylebone Lane. Hmmm. Tricky. Tricky.
For my guest, I invited one of my favourite blogger friends, Ashleigh from Quintessentially Me. She loves living healthy and promotes it on her blog. She’s also one hot South African lady to know!Once we were seated, we were treated to a tea presentation similar to ‘sensory journeys’ I’ve had in spas in the States. The server explained each of the six teas and gave us the opportunity to have a quick whiff of the tea leaves to absorb each of their aromatic powers.
I loved the rich, exotic floral taste.
The scones were the same as well. I had no problem finishing mine.
My top tier scored high marks too! The mini carrot cake was ultra moist. I probably could’ve eaten an entire large one. Or tried, anyway.
I loved the afternoon tea at Pantry at 108. The Marylebone Hotel is in a fantastic location! And the English Brasserie interior is simply, gorgeous.
From the spacious, sunny atmosphere, to the beautiful china, Pantry at 108 leaves no details untouched. I loved the premium champagne offering paired with the gluten free advantage! Sunny friends, if you’re looking for ambiance plus health value, this is the hot ticket in London right now! To learn more about the hotel’s rates and reviews, you can read here.
Our afternoon tea was complimentary for the purpose of a review. This did not influence my opinion of the experience. All photographs and opinions are my own.
What afternoon teas would you recommend in London, Sunny friends? What locations do you know that serve a gluten free afternoon tea?
