Going for afternoon tea was routine in my childhood – for the most part, my dad’s side of the family would gather at my grandma’s each Saturday and we would feast on all things sweet and savory. These were some of my fondest memories.
We were also lucky enough to experience having afternoon tea in hotels as well as restaurants so when we were invited to Bluebird, Chelsea to try out their Tiny Tea I was thrilled. Bluebird is situated on the King’s Road and famous for being one of the best hangouts in the area. It consists of a comfy all-day restaurant, a relaxing cafe and an upscale dining room.
Available for kids up to 10 years old and just £12 per child, you definitely get your money’s worth when it comes to the Tiny Tea. The price includes a selection of finger sandwiches, a drink, two mini scones with trimmings and plenty of sweet treats, including a mini strawberry milkshake and nutella filled donut. YUM. H’s highlights were that she could decorate her own cupcake and had so many activities to occupy her… colouring, spot the difference, a wordsearch and much more.
Whilst H was feasting on those delicacies, I was spoilt with the adult version. An array of sandwiches, (Just an FYI, the coronation chicken sandwich was amazing) two large scones which I devoured and a selection of beautifully presented pastries.
The service was wonderful and the outing was incredibly relaxing for us both. I highly recommend to anyone looking for something fun to do with their kids and give them the opportunity to make them feel like a grown up for the day.
The Tiny Tea will be available for future half terms and Easter school holidays and we’ll definitely be making a return 🙂
