The Dorchester Afternoon Tea at Chelsea Flower Show

Friday, April 22, 2016

The Dorchester, will be participating in the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016 by serving afternoon tea in a bespoke pop-up restaurant on-site.

This exclusive afternoon tea showcases the renowned talents of The Dorchester’s head pastry chef, David Girard, and designer florist, Philip Hammond, who have collaborated to create a special dining experience. Each cake tells a story, with our personal favourite being  ‘The Dorchester and the Giant Peach’, a peach mousse with peach and verbena on a rice crispy biscuit to honour the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s birth.

Guests will also have the added benefit of accompanying their tea with a glass of acclaimed Laurent-Perrier Champagne.

The Dorchester Afternoon Tea will be served in a specially decorated space at the show, evoking the heritage and glamour of The Promenade, the heart of The Dorchester since 1931. Guests will enjoy live music from the resident pianist and the tea will be served in The Dorchester’s own china bringing a taste of the iconic British hotel to the show.

The Dorchester Afternoon Tea at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show will cost from £60 per person available from Tuesday 24 May until Saturday, May 28 2016.
