Champagne & Choux

So I know it has been quite a while, I'll be honest I have been not just busy but also very lazy. Not cool at all. I have however got lots of exciting foodies things to talk about. The first, which this post is about, was my darling visit to Sketch for Champagne afternoon tea which I took my lovely LucyM out for as a birthday treat. Now I have heard mixed reviews about Sketch, as beautiful as the decor is I have heard the food isn't fab. This however could not be further from the truth. Although myself and Lucy didn't eat a proper lunch there we did get a chance to taste the most heavenly cakes, pastries, sandwiches, baguettes, tea (I had fresh mango tea while Lucy had Rosebud) and cocktails - these were all also absolutely delicious. In fact the scones seriously were freshest, warmest scones you can imagine! The pictures below I am sure will do the talking in terms of the arty, quirky atmosphere of the Glade room with its Swarovski encrusted walls, in which we devoured our scrumptious (extremely filling!) Champagne afternoon tea for £38 a head - well worth it for a cheeky treat. And definitely worth opting for the Champagne as it was a glass of Pommery Brut Royal (my new favourite!) which was very dry but beautifully smooth.
On another note if you do decide to take my advice and treat yourself to an afternoon at Sketch please please please make sure you check out the toilets!! absolutely awesome!
