If you are ever in London and want to partake of a delicious traditional afternoon tea, but not at a hotel where you have to book months in advance, then the Orange Pekoe Cafe in Barnes Bridge is the place to go. Not only is the food fabulous, but also it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, is prettily decorated and the price is very reasonable. Last week a friend and I decided to go there as we felt like a spot of proper tea. :)
The menu which is stuffed full of countless teas. All of which you can go and smell if you feel the urge. :) Every time I go to Orange Pekoe I am thoroughly boring and choose the same tea - their version of Lady Grey! :)
Sandwiches, cakes and scones. The cake was SO delicious. You can choose from about 5 different flavours, but of course I went for chocolate. :) One thing I love about the cafe is that just before you feel like eating your scones, you can tell one of the waiters/waitresses, and they will whisk them away to be heated up so that they are the perfect temperature when you come round to eating them! :)
They also offer a champagne tea.
Some of the tea pots that are scattered around the cafe.
I just love this wallpaper. :)
