Eat your way through the twists and turns of Shakespeare's ethereal romantic comedy with our Midsummer Night’s Dream afternoon tea.
Our Midsummer Night’s Dream Afternoon Tea includes a Wild mushroom & leek quiche,a rose infused raspberry mousse & lemon cake and mulberry scones served with clotted cream and seasonal berry jam. Or, if you have a more savoury tooth, our Gentleman’s afternoon tea is made up of tempting treats such as our Legbar Scotch Egg, Blue cheese and cider scones, beef sliders and potted smoked salmon.
For those seeking a more indulgent afternoon, a tipsy tea option is available. Our Love Potion cocktail is a magical mix of Earl Grey infused gin, honey from the London Honey Co, blackberry puree and prosecco, topped with fresh blackberries. Non-alcoholic options will include a range of Novus loose leaf teas, such as Lemon Verbenna.
The tea is served on bespoke crockery, featuring beautiful line drawings by illustrator Annika Wester, which mimic the themes of the play.

A beautiful afternoon tea. The staff are charming and the food is excellent. They cater wonderfully for vegetarians and provide a lovely, unique experience.

This was the fourth time me and my mom went for Afternoon Tea at the Swan. As always it was amazing. You get an wonderful view on the Thames while enjoying the lovely bites. We are vegetarian so they made special sandwiches for us. To make everything complete my mother got a special plate with extra macarons with on it Happy Birthday, because they knew it was her birthday. I already know that when we go next year to London we will enjoy another Afternoon tea at the Swan.

Visiting from the US and wanted a traditional afternoon tea. This is exactly what I was expecting. The food, the service, the view of the river was all spectacular

What a delightful afternoon at the Swan! The staff was attentive and friendly, the food was all delicious, and the tea and specialty cocktail were wonderful! With a view overlooking the Thames, it was the most relaxing 2 hours of my entire vacation!

It was ok. Nothing special really and very over-priced, like most afternoon teas. The only part of the 'theme' was some pretty plates.
