Afternoon Tea for Children in London

This is the best restaurant ever,  
exclaimed an enthusiastic Kid 
before taking another bite of his chicken sandwich. 

You see, we had been invited to sample 
a mini afternoon tea specially created for the little ones 
at the Reform Social & Grill restaurant
of the Mandeville hotel in Marylebone. 

A short walk from Oxford Street's hustle and bustle,
the Reform Social & Grill is ideal
if you want to take a break from shopping and sightseeing
and enjoy a nice afternoon tea with the little ones.

The afternoon tea for children
is fairly priced at £12.50
and comes in its own lunchbox.

It comprises of savoury sandwiches
{fish finger, peanut butter and BBQ chicken}
and of an array of beautifully presented sweets;
chocolate marshmallow lollipop,
chocolate chip scone, gingerbread man, jelly & custard pot,
and a milkshake to wash all this down.

And while the kiddos enjoy this sugar high,
it's only fair for grown ups to kick back and enjoy
a Vintage or a Gentleman's Afternoon Tea.

I opted for the Vintage one,
which is inspired by the 40s and 50s.

It's served with a champagne Bellini
and comprises of  classic savoury sandwiches
{top points for the coronation chicken}
and a vintage choice of sweet treats,
like a Somerset cider apple cake
and classic Battenberg.

The Reform Social & Grill atmosphere is formal yet relaxing,
with comfy leather booths
and vintage posters on the walls.

All in all, it's a great way to introduce the kids
to this exceptionally British tradition
and treat them to a nice afternoon in central London.

In a nutshell: an affordable child-friendly afternoon tea
in the centre of London that will make your little ones very happy.

  1. My dad took me once to the Reform Social when he used to work on the railways. He was always going and I felt so grown up going in to work with him and then going there. I'm not sure I'd feel as grown up with a peanut butter sandwich in a brightly coloured box. Of course I don't think we actually had bright colours in those days :-)

  2. That is a nice childhood memory, Simon! Thanks for your comment :)

  3. It sounds fab! I 'll have to try it with my tribe
