Ice Cream Tea at The Dorchester

afternoon tea at the dorchesterForgo the traditions of Afternoon Tea and indulge in its modern counterpart, Ice Cream Tea at the Dorchester this September.

Perfect for enjoying the last throes of sunshine, Ice Cream Tea is the best way to spend an afternoon on The Promenade at The Dorchester.

Afternoon tea is a quintessentially English treat, originating from the Victorian era. Putting a modern twist on the traditional cream tea, The Dorchester’s Ice Cream Tea is a tasting of mouth-wateringly delicious, homemade ice creams in four natural flavours. The selection of ice cream flavours on offer is far removed from your typical freezer filling fodder. Rather, the selection includes such tantalizing tastes as earl gray ice cream in a lemon cone, elderflower sorbet in a strawberry cone, cinnamon and cox apple sorbet in a chocolate cone and honey ice cream in a chocolate cone.

For the traditionalists amongst us, Ice Cream Tea also includes a selection of conventional afternoon tea delicacies such as  finger sandwiches, warm scones from The Dorchester bakery with homemade jam and Cornish clotted cream, a selection of French pastries and specially selected grand and rare teas. More than enough to fill you up until Winter.

The Dorchester resides in exclusive Mayfair, a beacon of tradition and grandeur among the city of London. It acts as the perfect backdrop to any occasion and the Ice Cream Tea is a fantastic way to treat someone.

Taking place each day until 30 September 2012, Ice Cream Tea at The Dorchester is available at five sittings each day and is priced from £39.00 per person. Prices are inclusive of VAT and exclusive of a service charge of 12.5%. For more information or to make a booking, please call +44 (0)20 7629 8888 or visit
