“‘Pret-a-Portea’ remains the most creative afternoon tea, bar none!” and is “always an amazing delight, both for the eyes and the lips” (this year, its beautifully crafted cakes inspired by fashion catwalks came with a Dior tie-in to match the exhibition at the V&A). “Sitting in the light and airy Collins Room is a treat” in itself too, but while for other occasions the food is “always of a high standard” then for a full meal “do not go hungry as portions can be small”.

“The famous Pret-a-Portea is a treat for the eyes as well as the palette” when you take tea in this refined chamber, which is part of Maybourne’s super-swanky Belgravia hotel, just off Knightsbridge. The miniature cakes are inspired by catwalk creations and are a “stunning and very quirky” assortment in fab-u-lous designs. Admittedly the experience is “not exactly cheap”“you could have a Michelin-starred lunch with wine for less money!”

“Exquisite attention to detail” – particularly the “fabulous miniature-styled cakes” – help create an “elegant, refined and beautiful” experience, when you sample the “fashion-inspired ‘Pret-a-Portea’” at the Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge. “I go twice a year with my mother, and we simply adore the new designs each season (the prices creep up, too, but we are always able to justify it by taking advantage of the unlimited supplies…!)”.

“A girlie afternoon not to be missed!” is to be had at this re-named Knightsbridge chamber (formerly The Caramel Room). Its “Pret-a-Portea has to be the best-looking afternoon tea in London and somehow manages not to sacrifice deliciousness at the temple of style”. “Go with your mum, granny, daughter or girlfriend!”
