After working up an appite wondering around St. Paul's Cathedral, or even just wandering around London the tea at The Restaurant at St Paul's is the perfect cure for any hunger pains you may have.

The sandwiches, scones and cakes may look innocent enough but when done you may need help moving! The crustless sandwiches were fresh, and as mentioned before the scones are the fluffiest scones... more

What could be more British than spending a rainy London afternoon visiting St Pauls then taking tea in the crypt alongside Nelson and Wellington? Of course, I had to assert my non-Englishness by ordering a coffee (which lived up to my fussy coffee standards: smooth, flavoursome, not burnt), but I regretted it when the silver teapots, strainers and milk jugs arrived... the only problem with the... more
