Afternoon tea is a quintessentially English experience – and now you can enjoy it with your dog by your side.
Egerton House Hotel in Knightsbridge, West London, welcomes peckish pooches and their owners. Afternoon tea is served in the 5* hotel’s elegant lounge and if you have a dog in tow, fuss from the friendly staff and other diners is practically guaranteed.
While you tuck in to an array of tasty finger sandwiches and delicate cakes and scones, your dog will be given their own selection of goodies to enjoy.
When we visited, Ernie happily chowed down on some peanut butter biscuits, a homemade meatloaf and a flavoursome Billy & Margot iced treat.
The meatloaf was definitely Ernie’s favourite part: it was gone within seconds. He ate it so fast, in fact, I didn’t have time to take a picture – so our compliments to the chef!
All of Ernie’s food was served on a three-tier cake stand, like ours, and while we enjoyed champagne and quirky flowering teas, he lapped up a big bowl of water and had a good chomp on the squeaky carrot toy that accompanied his meal.
Afternoon tea costs £40 (veggie and vegan options are available) while the doggy version will set you back £18. It’s the perfect decadent treat for both you and your four-legged friend.
Most rooms and suites at the Red Carnation-owned hotel are also dog-friendly and there are plenty of parks and attractions to explore nearby. Read our review of the hotel and its VIP (Very Important Pet) package here.
