Aqua Shard serves afternoon tea daily. Our current afternoon tea is inspired by the adventures of Peter Pan on the island of Neverland. Drawing on popular motifs from J.M Barrie’s much loved novel, our afternoon tea is a fitting tribute to the author and his fictional characters.
Innovative treats are served on a custom-made tea stand inspired by Captain James Hook’s Pirate Ship, the Jolly Roger, which symbolised pirate ships in the 18th Century.
To start, you will enjoy a savoury selection of finger sandwiches with a creative twist, including a chicken sandwich topped with crispy bacon wrapped in paper denoting the four ‘Lost Boy Rules’, and an ‘Enormous Mushroom Chimney’ – mushroom-shaped bread inspired by the mushroom stools ‘of charming colour’ in Neverland. Quintessentially British warm scones are hidden within a special treasure chest, accompanied by sweet apricot marmalade as well as coconut clotted cream.
£2 from each afternoon tea sold will be donated to The Great Ormond Street charity, to help seriously ill children from across the UK who are treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH).
