So, turns out scones and little sandwiches just don't get old. Well, in our case anyway.

There's no better way to spend an afternoon than scoffing a whole load of strawberry-themed treats and drinking a refreshing cuppa. Are you surprised?

In our quest to find the best afternoon tea in London, we set our sights on Kettner's.

THE SETTING


In the pretty and aptly named Pudding room, afternoon tea is served under glimmering chandeliers and white Parisian style furniture.

The mismatched vintage cups, saucers and antique Persian rugs, give the room a more rustic feel.

With a quiet atmosphere but for some chatter, it was the perfect setting too. Score 5/5

THE SANDWICHES


The fillings were a real mix, with egg, smoked salmon, cucumber and smoked chicken and tarragon all featuring. There's nothing like a chicken and tarragon sandwich. It was our definite favourite.

On fresh brown and white bread, and with crusts cut off, we were in heaven. Score 4/5

THE CAKES


Being strawberry-themed for Wimbledon, the cakes had a lot of, erm, well, strawberries in.

From strawberry tarts to strawberry macaroons, they were yummy but we did end up a tad strawberried out. Score 4/5

THE SCONES


Freshly baked and with all the trimmings, the scones were to-die-for.

With clotted cream and preserves, they were made with strawberry too. Well, of course they were. Score 5/5

THE DRINKS


It was a tough choice looking through the great tea selection.

We opted for a gorgeous jasmine lotus flowering tea and a smoky, refreshing Lapsang Souchong.

And the cocktail selection was just as great. From the Rhubarbellini with rhubarb bitters, to the G&Tea, with jasmine tea and Plymouth Gin, you cannot go wrong. Score 5/5

THE LOWDOWN


The Wimbledon afternoon tea is £24.95 per person, oradd champagne for £34.95.

If you book their traditional version on a Friday, it's £24.95 and you can get a complimentary glass of bubbly on arrival.

That'll start the weekend off right.
