Sketch - Mayfair - London

Sketch is a wonderful hidden world, disguised as a Townhouse from the outside.

Each room is uniquely decorated; they feel like they are different worlds for you to get lost within.

One of my absolute favourites is their Pink room, The Gallery. 

Paris-based Architect and Designer; India Mah was the mastermind creating the backdrop for British artist David Shrigley's satyrical sketches that line the walls. It is one of the most glorious gallery spaces in London. 


Sketch's Afternoon Tea Extravaganza, is not just any Afternoon Tea it's an experience.

There is ceremony to the pouring of champagne for example. 





First you choose your tea, and throughout the session you may try as many of the different teas as you like.

I went for the Green Tea blend of Osamnthus, a flowering green tea that is hand tied around an orange osmanthus flower, which gives it a hint of citrus. Later I had the Jasmine Pearl and finished off with Nilgiri Frost, a fragrant black tea with hints of apple.




As soon as the teas came, three towering layers of decadence followed suit.

All of which can be refilled as much as you please ;]



There is a round of sandwiches including; smoked salmon, quail egg mayo, cucumber, melted cheese pesto; all of which have a modern twist.

My personal highlight was the melted cheese pesto, which was even served warm and wrapped with a bow.





Topped with a selection of tarts, opera cakes, maracons and scones fresh from the oven.




An additional round of sandwiches were obviously a requirement.



Warm, fruity scones slathered with clotted cream and a choice of fig, strawberry and/or raspberry jam.

The scones were crumbly, crispy-topped and buttery; just how they should be.




It was a wonderfully glorious spread. 

Enough to leave anyone grinning from ear to ear with satisfaction. 

If you can't finish your triumphant tower of treats, you can even take the rest away with you. 


Sketch effortlessly snags the title of 'The Best Afternoon Tea in London,' in my books. 

Yummei's?  10/10

I've been keen to try out their afternoon tea for ages, partly because everyone says the food is great but also because I need to see those bizarre loos for myself!
