The Shortlist

Fortnum & Mason
Nominated for Best Afternoon Tea

Presented on Tiffany-blue china, the ‘Traditional Afternoon Tea’ includes a selection of small finger sandwiches, including egg and watercress, cucumber and mint and coronation chicken No afternoon tea would be complete without scones, of course, and this is where Fortnum’s really excel – buttery, crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth creations, both fruit and plain, are served with clotted cream and a choice of Fortnum & Mason’s home-made preserve, which you can take home with you afterwards.
