London: The Royal Horseguards Afternoon Tea

I was really lucky this time around to fit two afternoon teas in a single London visit.  And lucky to have local friends that recommend places for me.  My friend M recommended the Royal Horseguards so we went on a Saturday afternoon.  Located just down the street from the Thames river, the afternoon tea is served in the lobby (in a comfortable sectioned-off area as well as along the hallway).  Very impressed by the service and atmosphere, I did learn that the Royal Horseguards was awarded the Tea Guild’s Award of Excellence 2013 – and deservedly so!  I ordered the Signature Tea which included a selection of sandwiches, cakes, pastries and scones with clotted cream and homemade preserves.  The tea of choice, the “Strawberries & Cream” blend of leaf tea.  My favourite is always and continues to be the selection of sandwiches, delicious – especially the coronation chicken sandwich!
