Afternoon tea is a quintessentially English experience – and now you can enjoy it with your faithful hound 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’re dining with a dog, fuss from the 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 tucked in to some peanut butter biscuits, a homemade meatloaf and a Billy & Margot iced treat. The meatloaf was definitely his favourite part: it was gone within seconds. I didn’t even have time to take a picture!
All of Ernie’s food was served on a three-tier cake stand, like ours. While we enjoyed champagne and quirky flowering teas, he lapped up water and chomped 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. Read our review of the hotel and its VIP (Very Important Pet) package by clicking here. For more information about the doggy afternoon tea, visit the Egerton House Hotel website or call 020 7589 2412.
