The only thing better than afternoon tea? Afternoon tea with the girls. This weekend, Moozles and I went out for afternoon tea with one of her friends from school. And lucky for me, her friend’s mum is pretty cool too (and American, woo!). So took the train and tube to Bond Street to sample the delights at Reform Social & Grill.
Reform Social is located at The Mandeville Hotel, which is very chic. So of course Reform looks gorgeous. Creams, reds, leather, marble, modern and vintage. And such beautiful mismatched tableware. But the decor was forgotten once our food arrived. The Mini Afternoon Tea was absolutely adorable. The girls had their sandwiches, chocolate chip scone and sweet treats served in sweet little lunchboxes. And they enjoyed milkshakes and hot chocolate while the mums guzzled tea and drank peach bellinis.
The grown-up afternoon tea is pretty wonderful too. My friend and I shared a Vintage Afternoon Tea and a Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea. The vintage tea has lots of lovely things, but I’d like to mention the gentleman’s tea. First, let me state how I love afternoon tea. But I normally go with girlfriends. My Husband is not keen on afternoon tea as he does not like going to a restaurant to eat little sandwiches. But he would love the gentleman’s tea at Reform. Besides the scone and sweet fancies, there are mini steak sandwiches, fish fingers and sausage rolls. Yummy and quite filling.
The mini tea costs £12.50 and the grown-up teas cost £26.50 (the latter includes a seasonal bellini). This is very reasonable for London. And with the fab ambiance, it feels like such a treat. I’ll definitely be going back to Reform. Maybe another tea with my girl. But first I want to try the Sunday brunch or roast with just Husband, no kids, and lots of the free-flowing bubbles.
We were invited to sample the Mini Afternoon Tea for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
