London’s famed Kensington Hotel is offering a ‘Beauty and the Beast’ tea ahead of the movie’s release


To celebrate the release of Beauty and the Beast, Town House at The Kensington Hotel in London is offering an Afternoon Tea, named Tale as Old as Time, complete with charming Mrs. Potts and Chip Potts dishware. The perfect family outing or afternoon with friends and loved ones, the tea features various sweets and savories based on the characters and scenes of the film.

Highlights include Vanilla & Gold Jelly, presented in shot glasses with the ever-symbolic rose petal immersed inside, served with cream poured from Mrs. Potts spout. Other treats include a Spiced Snow Ball Macaroon; Coconut & Chocolate, referring to the classic scene featuring Belle and Beast’s playful snowball fight. Also available will be a Chocolate Clock Tart made of Chocolate Ganache, featuring an image of the lovable Cogsworth’s face. Taken from everyone’s favorite song from the film, ‘Be Our Guest’, will be Town House’s ‘Try the Grey Stuff’ White Chocolate Mousse, a dessert recommended by none other than the iconic candle character, Lumière.

Alongside the selection of delicious sweets, Town House will also offer a variety of savory delights to enjoy, including a Bite-Sized Venison Pie, Cheese Soufflé with Roscoff Onion Pissaladiere, and a Beef Ragu & Saffron Arancini served with Lemon Crème Fraiche.

As an alternative to scones, Town House will offer Marie’s Sweet Brioche Baguette with apricot preserve & chocolate pot, referring to the local baker from Belle’s hometown in the film.

The Tale as Old as Time Afternoon Tea Menu will be available from February 13-26 and on Saturdays & Sundays only throughout the end of March.
