Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Inspired Afternoon Tea At One Aldwych

The Charlie and the chocolate factory inspired afternoon tea at One Aldwych has been on my to do list for some time so when my sister suggested it for my Mum's 70th Birthday celebrations, I was very pleased. My biggest concern was how would my boys enjoy it. When looking at the children's menu the only thing that was different was that they had jam, ham and cheese sandwiches. However, it turned out to be no problem and they were soon keen to try my sandwiches too!


The Charlie cocktail had us all intrigued. Presented in a clear teapot bubbling away it was quirky and tasted divine. It was a mix of whisky with cherry, grapefruit and champagne. I would highly recommend you try it.

The sandwiches were then served along with our chosen teas. It was a lovely selection and I particularly enjoyed the vegetable wellington. These were filled up once we had finished them. The teas again were lovely. I chose the mango noir whilst my husband had the heavier chocolate tea. The boys were pleased to have hot chocolate.


Then came the cakes and desserts which looked beautiful and my boys faces just lit up.

A firm favourite was the candyfloss which was rhubarb and custard flavour. I personally enjoyed the black forest gateau and cocoa bean financier. As we were filling up fast, they kindly provided boxes so we could take the remaining cakes home.

As it was a special occasion they also bought my Mum a special Birthday Cake.

The afternoon tea was lovely and a good one to take children too. The service was second to none. So what did my boys think about afternoon tea? Big man piped up "I didn't like it Mummy. I loved it! Can we go again for your Birthday?"

What afternoon teas do you recommend? It's not a bad bucket list to make!
