Afternoon Tea by the river at Thai Square Putney Bridge
By Katie Ann Wiseman
Afternoon tea is a quintessentially British tradition and pretty special. It is a sophisticated way to catch up with family and friends. Despite its English origins, Thai Square Putney Bridge have recently launched their own take on afternoon tea with a wonderful Thai twist.
Created by their talented executive chef, Oula, this unique Anglo Thai affair enables you to feast on traditional Thai delicacies such as La Tieng, best described as fried prawns and chicken wrapped in an egg net, caviar toast, egg sandwiches.
Sweeter treats available include Oula’s now legendary lychee mousse, ginger Crème brûlée and coconut flan. Of course, an afternoon tea wouldn’t be complete without freshly baked scones with jam and Cornish clotted cream.
This is accompanied by an extensive selection of Fortnum & Mason teas such as fresh ‘Lemongrass & Pandan’ or ‘The Christening’, which was especially created after the birth of HRH Prince George.
Served on Saturdays and Sundays, from 2.30pm until 5pm, the afternoon tea costs just £19.95 per head, or £26.95 inclusive of a glass of chilled champagne. The location is excellent and you can enjoy wonderful views of the river while making the most of a relaxing afternoon.
