Afternoon Tea at The Thistle Euston Hotel

Afternoon Tea at The Thistle Euston Hotel

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well, I'm currently revising for my exams waah. I've had two and I have one more and I caaaan't wait until it's over! Good luck to everyone else who's revising :)
It was my best friends birthday in November so as a surprise the girls and I chipped in to go to 
Afternoon Tea. We found a really good deal on Wowcher at 'The Thistle Euston Hotel' which was about a 2 minute walk from Euston Tube Station. We went on New Years Day so it was really quiet inside, it all looked so pretty especially with the Christmas decorations and Christmas tree still up :)








We were worried that it would be reaally busy as in some places you have your booked time slot and they hurry you away quickly but we spent hours eating loads of food and having a big girly catch up :) Annoyingly where Ruth and I were sitting we had spotlights directly above us so the photos came out with weird shadows, nevermind it really isn't that big a deal haha XD

When we got there we were shown to our table and the waitress came and showed us what selection of teas they had, I went for Vanilla Chai, Laura had English Breakfast, Ruth had Earl Gray and Sam had a Lemon Ginger tea. The china was adorable! All the teacups, mugs, plates etc had the cutest blue detailing. We all felt so fancy and grown up going for Afternoon Tea haha!

Afterwards they brought the food round and there was soo much! It was all really yummy and we couldn't eat it all :)
On the first layer were finger sandwiches and there were four classic types: cucumber and cheese, salmon, egg and cress and ham and tomato :)
On the second layer were different cakes. There was a really nice, rich chocolatey one, a refreshing rasberry mousse which was really light and fluffy and apple pies :)
Finally at the top were scones! You can't have afternoon tea without scones :) They were warm and they came with a choice of clotted cream and raspberry jam, I decided to steer away from the clotted cream as I don't like it and piled on the jam instead, but the girls really enjoyed it :)

So that was our day in London at Afternoon Tea, we had a really nice time and I was really full afterwards which I didn't I would be! The staff were all super lovely and it was so great to catch up with the girls, I hope Laura enjoyed her treat and I would definitely go again :)

  3. I'm not a fan of tea, but if I ever get the chance to go over to England one day, I'm having a proper afternoon tea! That Lemon Ginger tea actually sounds good! I've never had scones either. It would be a day of firsts and practically going crazy I'm sure. :)

    1. It was nice that they had a selection of teas so there would be at least something that would take your fancy :) Haha! That sounds like it will be loads of fun XD I'm not a big scone eater but you should try it one day! :) It would be nice to go to Afternoon Tea in a cute little cafe so it's more homely and cute :)
