Until 9 Sep: Afternoon Tea & Cocktails Inspired by The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Aslan apple and almond slice, Fluffy Lucy lemon tart, Peter and the Professor peach tiramisu, white raspberry witches hat, Brownie wardrobe to Narnia… If you were mesmerised by C. S. Lewis’ story of four siblings entering a strange wardrobe and into the magical and frosty landscape of Narnia, you will be delighted to know that the book has inspired an afternoon tea menu at the Park Terrace Restaurant of the Royal Garden Hotel in London, for both adults and children. It costs £22 per person, or £32-36.50 with a glass of Canard-Duchêne champagne. You can see the full menu here. A special children’s menu is also available.

You can complement the pastries and cakes with a selection of Narnian cocktails (from £6.50) such as “Snow Storm”, made from indulgent double cream, orgeat syrup and zingy citrus fruits, and “White Witch”, a mixture of lime, blueberries, sugar cane, blue curacao and vodka.

For special occasions (or not), you can even order a Narnia birthday cake with Aslan, a pastel-hued hat and the famous wardrobe on top (£30–£96 depending on size and choice of sponge or fruit).

The Royal Garden Hotel is the official hotel partner for the new production of C. S. Lewis’ The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe directed by Rupert Goold in Kensington Gardens this summer.

Until 9 September 2012. Weekends and School Holidays from 2:00–5:30pm only.
