Remember the last time you went for afternoon tea? Was it when your first cousin, once removed – who you met only once when you were five – came to visit from the States? Yeah, well we tend to stay away from the sad triangle piles for good reason. But this twist to the concept, at The Luggage Room, mimics what the upper classes in the 1920s used to call Low Tea. And they do not seem to have been too keen on cucumber sandwich either. Instead, imagine smoked eel, horseradish and crème fraiche vol au vents, Devonshire wild boar sausage rolls, and for pudding Tiptree Tawny Marmalade infused carrot cake and a salted caramel meringue that will blow your  mind. And before we start, our very knowledgable waiter lets us sample the tea, reigning our obsession with Lapsang. We promise we won’t be rude about afternoon tea again.
