Executive pastry chef Yam Lok Hin has created a royal afternoon tea to celebrate the Jubilee.

The afternoon tea features intricately designed speciality pastries including a Jubilee Macaron – filled with lavender ganache and cassis gel and with the official Queen’s Platinum Jubilee logo – a royal wedding fruitcake inspired by The Queen and Prince Philipp’s wedding cake in 1947, an almond Battenberg and freshly baked scones. For a twist on a classic, there’s also a reimagined Victoria Sponge pastry, made with Earl Grey mousse and blackberry cream.

The sweet treats are served alongside finger sandwiches including coronation egg mayonnaise with spring onions and mustard cress on white bread, Pimm’s marinated smoked salmon with lemon infused crème fraiche on granary bread, and Scottish blue lobster with Portland crab, basil mayonnaise and mango salsa on white bread.

The hotel is keeping the celebrations going far beyond the Jubilee as the royal afternoon tea, which is priced at £62 per person, will be served until 31 August.
