Afternoon Tea

A twist on a classic afternoon tea inspired by the National Theatre’s most celebrated shows.


Lady Bracknell Triangles
Cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches on white bread –
not to be eaten until Aunt Augusta arrives.
(The Importance of Being Earnest)

The Guvnor Sandwich
As offered up in One Man, Two Guv’nors: a hummus
sandwich – wholemeal bread with cheeky carrot
and spicy cumin

Nothing to fear here from Pinocchio’s fire-eater –
it’s a tasty spinach, olive and mozzarella pastry

Mrs Lovett’s Pie
A deliciously crumbly pork and onion pie –
more wholesome than Sweeney Todd’s


In time-honoured theatrical tradition pick from
the daily ice-cream or sorbet specials


Salieri’s Macarons
Indulge your taste buds with a pink macaron
as Salieri does in Amadeus

Angel (s In America) Cake
The stars and stripes (and cake) forever!


An unmissable classic: homemade scones with rich clotted cream and strawberry jam.

Served with a selection of classic organic teas, freshly ground coffee and herbal tisanes.
