Fortnum and Mason
181 Piccadilly, London, W1A 1ER
In 1926 this famous grocery store was transformed into a unique department store with a restaurant that offered afternoon tea. Fortnum & Mason is now one of the most popular tea rooms in London. The tradition of taking tea and that little bit of something between lunch and dinner had long been a feature of smart households. In the Roaring Twenties Fortnum’s was defined by a menu featuring our finest teas, delicate sandwiches and exquisite cakes.
On March 1st 2012, with enormous joy and excitement, the refurbished St James’s Restaurant was opened by Her Majesty the Queen accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge, and renamed The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon.
