With this year’s Chelsea Flower Show fast approaching, The Petersham in Richmond is officially in bloom. Celebrate London’s most prestigious horticultural event with a specially created floral inspired afternoon tea, exclusively available in the hotel’s elegant riverside restaurant from 20th May until 30th June.
In honour of London’s greatest flower show, Head Chef Jean-Didier has hand-crafted a selection of exquisite floral-based desserts to be served alongside traditional homemade scones and finger sandwiches. The bespoke afternoon tea features botanical inspired creations such as a hibiscus Crème Brûlée, a white chocolate mousse with rose, and a playful truffle lollipop with lavender and strawberry – each beautifully decorated with edible flora and fauna inspired garnishes.
Accompanying the menu is also an extensive selection of light and fruity loose-leaf teas, with flavours ranging from White Pear & Ginger to Persian Pomegranate.
With its beautiful location perched on the side of leafy Richmond Hill, The Petersham restaurant boasts spectacular floor-to-ceiling views over the River Thames, making it the perfect setting to celebrate the beauty of nature both on and off your plate.
The Petersham’s Floral Afternoon Tea will be available from 20th May to 30th June 2019. Tea is served from 3pm to 5:30pm (Monday – Saturday) or 4pm to 5:30pm (Sunday). It is priced at £29.50 on weekdays, and £32.50 on Saturday and Sunday.
