Two For Tea

Claridge's hotel has, rather predictably, been awarded the Top London Afternoon Tea 2006 award (yes, it really exists).

The hotel beat the Dorchester, the Four Seasons and the Wolseley to the prize which was awarded by the Tea Guild, "a prestigious and unique organisation that represents and encourages those outlets who are dedicated to both brewing and serving tea to the high standards desired by The Tea Council" (nice website by the way Tea Guild).

The national Afternoon Tea Award went to the Hazelmere Cafe & Bakery in Cumbria, a fact reported by Chris Borg over at the Guardian News Blog today

Chris also goes onto name a few of his favourite London cafes, which include the River Cafe at Putney Bridge, the New Piccadilly off Piccadilly Circus, the Metropolitan on Edgware Road, and Pellicci's in Bethnal Green. All of which can be found at the brilliant (and friend of Londonist) Classic Cafe's website.
