Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of The Ritz  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

Whilst the prices are steep, an afternoon tea at The Ritz is something that you will never forget.

This Palm Court's luxurious cupola, birdcage chandeliers, lemon-coloured Dior chairs, and staff dressed-up in brass-buttoned tailcoats, will set the scene perfectly. They've even got a resident piano player, who seems to specialise in old Hollywood show tunes.

As for the food, you will be treated to 17 different varities of loose leaf tea to go with the finger sandwiches and baked scones, served with Devonshire clotted cream and preserves. If you still have room, then you can select a posh cake or pastry from the trolley. And it's all served on pretty chinaware and a gleaming silver tea service.

Craig has actually stayed at The Ritz hotel himself (although he hasn't had an afternoon tea). You might like to read his review to see what the inside of the hotel is like.

Note: There is a strict dress code at The Ritz. Men must wear a jacket and tie (no jeans), and sports shoes are not allowed.
