Swan at Shakespeare's Globe

21 New Globe Walk, London, SE1 9DT

Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe serves A Midsummer Night’s Dream afternoon tea, inspired by the play and worthy of the fairy queen herself. The tea is available daily from 12pm until 3pm.

The tea includes a collection of sweet and savoury delights, many of which can be traced back to the food and characters seen in the play. The menu features pea flower, which is the flower from which Oberon’s love potion is squeezed, interfering with the lovers’ fates throughout the play, apricots, which Titania feeds to Bottom when she is cast under the potion’s spell, and mulberries, the tree under which Pyramus and Thisbe agree to meet in the play within a play.

The tea is served on bespoke crockery reflecting the themes of the play, specially designed by illustrator Annika Wester.
