The power of passionDiscover the world of Red Carnation
Beneath waving fans and crystal chandeliers – imported from England, they once hung in the Savoy Hotel – The Palm Court is the memorable setting for leisurely High Tea at The Oyster Box. With the resident pianist tickling the ivories High Tea is a sophisticated affair; the buffet table is laid generously with platters of both sweet and savoury treats.
Local culinary traditions are celebrated in the crisp samoosas and fragrant chilli bites, while Bea Tollman’s much-loved ‘Chicken Mayo’ sandwich, coated with flaked almonds, is a perennial favourite with guests old and new. Those with a sweet tooth will love the delicate buttermilk apple crumble, chocolate tarts and the teatime classic; fresh scones with cream and preserves.
High Tea in The Palm Court is hosted daily, and both resident guests and visitors are welcome.
