Afternoon tea at the Ritz Carlton takes place in the truly opulent Star Lounge (pictured) which has the feel of an 18th century English country house. The lavish environment of dark woods, exquisitely ornate furnishings and soft lighting make this a step into a world gone-by.

The Star Lounge is known for its legendary bartender of over 30 years, Norman Bukofzer, who helps to bring a refined ambience to this perfect setting for afternoon tea.

The attention to detail on the Ritz Carlton's afternoon tea is fabulous. The sandwiches alone feature a veritable array of delights. Egg salad, black truffle, pain de mie along with cucumber and dill, Greek yoghury creme fraiche and pumper nickel. The authenticity of the afternoon tea is guaranteed with homemade scones, fruit preserves and Devonshire cream. Truly delightful!
