Afternoon Tea At Sketch

My Sketch London Afternoon Tea Experience

Our afternoon tea at Sketch took place in the gallery room at Sketch London. The gallery at Sketch is a girly, glamorous room, with pink walls and matching pink soft, velvety sofas and chairs. Along with glimmering rose gold accents and an amazing zig zag tiled floor.

A friendly hostess told us that the gallery room at Sketch London has been pretty in pink for about 3 years. It normally gets a makeover every 2 years, but the room has been so popular that it hasn't been re-designed yet. I'm glad I got the chance to experience it for myself.

Afternoon tea at Sketch is four courses long. The first two afternoon tea courses at Sketch are
sandwiches and sweet pastries. Both arrive together on a rack of quirky crockery.

The ceiling at Sketch is beautiful to look at and super high in the gallery room at Sketch. There are doodles on the walls and surprisingly everything goes together nicely.

Afternoon tea at Sketch is suitable for friends and family. Couples and older kids. It was a more casual affair than I had envisioned. There's no requirement to dress all the way up for Sketch afternoon tea. However I recommend doing so for a sit down evening meal.

For my first cup of Sketch London tea, I ordered the Taiwan oriental beauty tea. It wasn't very memorable to be fair. My husband J went for a chai tea.

We both received our own rack of sandwiches and pastries. Five sandwiches are served during afternoon tea at Sketch. A coronation chicken sandwich. Smoked salmon. Quail egg with caviar. A cheese pesto toastie and asparagus with cucumber sandwiches.

The coronation chicken sandwich at Sketch was one of my faves. Tender, flavoursome pieces of chicken between soft brown bread. My other favourite sandwich during afternoon tea at Sketch was the yummy cheese pesto toastie. It comes tied up in a cute little ribbon with baking paper. The smoked salmon sandwich is served in a soft, pitta style bread.

The sweet pastries weren't that memorable to me. However, my favourite part of Sketch afternoon tea - the scones, were as good as you'd expect. Choose between fruit or plain scones which arrive with clotted cream, fig sauce and homemade jam.

For my second tea I tried the flowering osmantus which was a bit of a disappointment. There's also an option for champagne teas which I didn't try.

Now, lets talk toilets. Yes toilets!

The bathroom at Sketch is amazing to say the least! You'll first be met by a large brilliant white bathroom. Which won't resemble a bathroom at all! With a dome shaped nightclub space snug in the middle. Winding white stairs lead up to the futuristic, open plan bathroom. The bathroom at Sketch is a total contrast to the pink, romantically lit gallery room. Giant egg pods in the bathroom are in actual fact toilets. Where once inside a cubicle, you'll feel like you're on a mission to mars! Astronaut commentary can be heard in each of the bathroom toilets.

The high curved ceilings in the bathroom at sketch are a gorgeous feature too. A montage of colourful, semi translucent squares. Which glow brighter when the sun hits them. In the bathroom, a men's urinal even has a continuous floor to ceiling waterfall effect. We didn't even realise what it was at first!

What Was Amazing? 

The venue itself. The beautiful pink gallery room at Sketch plus the most unique bathroom toilets!
