The Art of High Tea

High tea has been a cherished British tradition for centuries, and Bartholomew's pays homage to this heritage with a unique twist. The expertly crafted menu features an assortment of delectable pastries, finger sandwiches, and scones served on elegant tiered stands. Each item is a culinary masterpiece, showcasing the chef's dedication to perfection.

What truly sets Bartholomew's Gin High Tea apart is its infusion of gin into the traditional tea experience. Gin, often hailed as "Mother's Ruin," takes center stage in this innovative concept.
