What’s the vibe? F&M’s elegant tea salon has been serving the good stuff since 1926. A pastel-coloured dining room on the fourth floor of the iconic St James’s department store, this spacious spot excels in both sweet and savoury teas. Top picks from the former include the smooth chocolate mousse (not forgetting treats from the cake carriage), while stars of the latter include savoury scones with Shropshire Blue cheese and smoked salmon sandwiches with tartare dressing. The outdoor terrace has recently been expanded and there's now the option to enjoy afternoon and high tea selection outside in the sunshine for the very first time.
Price? From £62.50 per person (£30 per child), £74.95 with a glass of Fortnum’s Blanc de Blancs, Hostomme NV.
