Inside London #6: teatime at Soho Hotel

Though our hunt for hip hotels is ceaseless, every now and then something comes along and gets in the way. The best coffee in London for example, or the best steak in London, or the best bohemian book launch with cheese (yup, also in London)…

Yesterday’s distraction was tea at the sumptuous Soho Hotel. Afternoon tea is always a treat – the combination of prettily patterned crockery, wafer-thin buttered bread and dainty pastries is enough to make us dizzy – but this one was all the more special: the Ruinart and Miller Harris Sensory Afternoon Tea.
