About this deal

I also discovered in this book that there is such a thing as mock clotted cream and a recipe for it. I’m going to be posting the recipes in the next week or so, so make sure to come back for more recipes. This charming Edwardian-style book captures the essence of this traditional British pastime, and provides us with all the expertise on the ceremony as well as the recipes. Rub the butter into the flour and baking powder with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar. Cakes, tarts and puddings - From colourful Battenburg cakes and lemon tarts to warming spicy dark gingerbread or steamed toffee pudding, these irresistable bakes will have something to suit every taste.

The encryption keys are held on state-of-the-art, tamper proof systems in the same family as those used to secure VeriSign's Global Root certificate, making them all but impossible to extract. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Each recipe comes with an introduction as to its origins or when it should be served, or sometimes a tip.It was very nice, the decoration very sumptuous but I couldn’t help but feel they had crammed a few too many tables into the area, but the tea and different plates were of course wonderful. The recipes are in both imperial and metric measurements, some have a colour photograph or there is a scene photograph from the TV series. With character quotes and television stills, it brings the tradition, still loved by many Brits, to life. Poorer quality china (porcelain) cracked due to thermal shock if hot tea went in first- so the custom was to put in the milk, then the tea- thus lessen the thermal shock. If you are a resident of another country or region, please select the appropriate version of Tripadvisor for your country or region in the drop-down menu.

As with everything, we were very early, so we decided to have a quick drink at the (aptly named) Rivoli Bar before meeting my aunt and uncle for ‘afternoon tea’.In London, they do try to do things properly, which is why we adore Downton Abbey in the first place, right? My expectations were of perfection – to be transported to a world of magical afternoon tea indulgence that could never be bettered – and I was almost giddy with excitement. Well managed visit although not everyone observed the social distancing rules and no one to monitor it.
