For anyone that’s enjoyed reading Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Peter Rabbit, famed for his cheeky antics in Mr. McGregor’s garden, the The Peter Rabbit™ Afternoon Tea at Le Meridien Hotel, Piccadilly, isn’t to be missed. The afternoon tea is situated on the second floor in The Terrace restaurant, a chic, light and airy conservatory style space, which is bright and cheerful on a sunny afternoon.
I love anything nostalgic, especially if it’s well executed, so I couldn’t wait to see how they’d brought the theme to life throughout the afternoon tea. The exceptionally cute menu, with its gorgeous Peter Rabbit illustrations, helped to set the tone and got us in the mood for what was to follow.
Other tasty items included a marvellous strawberry ganache mushroom with a crunchy meringue stem, carrot cake (a favourite of any rabbit), an open blackberry macaroon topped with creme patisserie and a blackberry garnish, and fresh scones (fruit and plain) with jam and clotted cream and a selection of loose- leaf teas.
All of the delightful items for the adult’s afternoon tea were served on a multi-tiered slate board, which added to the rustic garden feel and gave us a good view of all of the treats on offer. The children’s version was served in a wooden crate, which is also cute and included lovely little touches, such as a 'no rabbits' sign tucked inside the edible flower pot.
We’d definitely recommend the Peter Rabbit afternoon tea for anyone looking to relive this favourite childhood classic.
