Fan of British traditions? The shakespeare globe restaurant, The Swan is the ideal place to have a perfect afternoon tea. The room is airy, bright and you have a wonderful view on the Thames and Saint Paul.
The staff is really efficient and helpful. You feel like a guest. On the menu, you have the choice between the traditional afternoon tea with delicious savoury sandwiches, spongy inside and crusty outside scones served with light cream and to finish delightful pastries.
I may had something to say about the panacotta which was not what I expected. Add to these mouthfuls treats the drink of your choice: a great selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate or even cocktails. May I say that this relaxing time is not only for women.
Don’t worry Gentlemen, this relaxing time is manly enough for you too with more savoury dishes like scotch eggs; fish finger sandwiches, potted salmon…So to sum up, it’s an address to put on your notebook 😉
