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.
From edible chamomile chocolate pots to vegetable patch sandwiches, to Flower-Pot Hideout pastries, there are plenty of touches that bring a bit of garden magic to the proceedings.
Sandwiches included ‘Mr. McGregor’s Garden' (mini baguettes with red-pepper hummus and mini carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, radishes and pea shoots), smoked salmon and sun-dried tomato pinwheel, ham and cheese and devilled eggs on basil bread.
I was accompanied by my husband and our 18-month-old son, Evan, who is too young to know who Peter Rabbit is, so if I’m being honest, it was more about indulging my own childhood memories than anything! That being said, he looked very impressed with his children’s version of the afternoon tea, but as the adult version is quite large, the additional children’s version probably wasn’t entirely necessary as there were so many delicious items that we couldn’t even finish what we had.
Evan's favourite experience hands down was sipping his juice out of the cute plastic Peter Rabbit mug as he felt grown up.
We’d definitely recommend the Peter Rabbit afternoon tea for anyone looking to relive this favourite childhood classic.
The Peter Rabbit™ afternoon tea is available for a limited period of time, for only £35 per adult and £25 for the children's version of the afternoon tea.
