The Drawing Room at Flemings London is the perfect setting for a gentle afternoon tea. The tearoom itself is elegant and pays homage to the Flemings Hotel 18th century origins with chic period detailing in terms of decor and hand-painted wall panels by de Gournay depicting early views of India. Which brings us onto the menu, offering an impressive variety of high-quality teas – from Earl Greys and darjeelings through to herbal infusions – and harks back to the time of The East India Company. Then, it terms of food, The Drawing Room at Flemings offers light refreshments in the way of afternoon tea classics. To be sure of a spot at this Mayfair institution, head to Half Moon Street armed with a reservation.
