Overview

This exclusive afternoon tea for two in an iconic London setting is the perfect treat for you and your fellow Shakespeare enthusiast. With the historic surroundings of the Globe to host you, you’ll be able to indulge in a delicious afternoon tea inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream. You will both be spoilt with an incredible selection of sweet and savoury treats worthy of the fairy queen herself. Sip on delicious tea served on bespoke crockery specially designed by talented illustrator Annika Wester and indulge on herb fed lemon chicken and pea flower sandwiches, the pea flower being the very thing from which Oberon’s love potion is squeezed. With outstanding plays, exhibitions and workshops on offer (topped off with a delicious mocktail or cocktail each), this experience is the perfect blend of food and culture.

Perfect Start to the week
18 March 2020
I went with a friend on the final day before most restaurants, bars and theatres began to shut down for the Coronavirus. The service was impeccable and even though it was quiet at the Swan, the atmosphere was very relaxing, not to mention the tea itself being excellent. I would definitely recommend.

A gift for my Mum
24 September 2019
I bought my mum this afternoon tea experience as part of her Christmas present and she loved it. The venue is gorgeous and the room which the afternoon tea is served in has a lovely view of the river and St Pauls. The afternoon tea itself was delicious and the treats which we couldn't fit in were boxed up for us so we could take them home. The plates which had Midsummer Nights Dream quotes and artwork on them were a lovely touch, as was the love potion cocktail. The staff are all very nice and attentive so all in all I would recommend this experience as a treat for someone or just yourself :)

The swan
04 August 2019
This was our second visit to the swan for afternoon tea and CERTAINLY not as a good of an experience as we had the first time. Staff were curt on arrival, rude in there approach to us as customers, we were escorted to the top of the building where rickety tables welcomed us for afternoon tea. Before we had a superb table in the restaurant. The decoration was stark, and soleless. Thankfully the crockery hadn’t changed and was still as beautiful and the afternoon tea selection and quality was superb. Staff just went through the motions with no warmth. Best member of staff was the male server we had, as was courteous throughout and attentive to all guests.

A bit disappointed
01 August 2019
Booked especially for husband to have the 'Gentleman's Afternoon Tea'. However, when this was requested we were told it would be an extra £12 even though it was only £4 more expensive on the menu!

Amazing

Amazing afternoon tea. So worth the price and the view is great. Staff are excellent and was more than happy to help! Only thing I would say was a down side was booking your table via phone is not the best as they don’t really pick up the phone and I had to call 5 times before someone answered.
