Science Teapot Tails

This grown-up twist on The Ampersand Hotel’s famous Science Afternoon Tea includes playful treats and fruity cocktails for an exciting dining experience.

Our menu is inspired by the neighbouring Natural History and Science Museums. Enjoy a cocktail flight including Darwin’s Draught, a refreshing mix of Lalani & Co Earl Grey infused Chase vodka with cucumber, apple and ginger; and Marie Cure-All, a mix of Lalani & Co Premium Genmaicha infused rum with Aperol, Antica Formula & Amer Picon. These will be served alongside perennial afternoon tea favourites.

Expect a delicious selection of seasonal sandwiches including chicken with tarragon; brioche with roast beef; truffle and mushroom tart; and cheddar and thyme scones with truffle butter.

But just because it’s for grown-ups doesn’t mean it’s lost all the fun: you can dust for mini dinosaur biscuit ‘fossils’ hidden beneath chocolate soil, sample orange and lemon half-moon cakes alongside milk chocolate spacemen, and also try our expertly-crafted patisserie including caramel passion fruit planet mousse.
