The Zetter Townhouse
When you book a table at this rustic townhouse hotel in Marylebone, you’ll want it to be the one directly in front of the fireplace. Because while the whole dining area of the Zetter is charming in a mismatched chairs, grandfather clocks, and paintings of people who were alive hundreds of years ago type of way, nibbling at smoked salmon finger sandwiches in the warmth of the wood-burning fireplace is an experience in itself. And when it comes to afternoon tea, this spot is an excellent choice. For the savouries, you can opt for the classic finger sandwiches or a pastry option, with things like a truffle sausage roll and a goat's cheese and red onion jam pasty. The sandwiches and pastries are both excellent choices, so mix and match with whoever you’re with so you get to try both. This is a chilled-out spot where your tea will come from the cocktail bar and you’ll be pouring it yourself, but you’ll also be eating some of the best scones in London. Yes, we’re talking about you, raisin spiced scone.
