A hop, skip and a jump from St James Park lies the St Ermin’s Hotel. Overflowing with flora and fauna, you would think that such lush surrounds would be more akin to the suburbs rather than the inner-city hustle and bustle. This hidden gem of a hotel not only offers a moment of calm but also a children’s afternoon tea inspired by the wonders of St. Ermin’s rooftop kitchen garden. Served in a picket fence ‘garden’ box, the afternoon tea features delights including chocolate and caramel ‘soil’ pots, jam filled tomato sponge cakes and a fresh apple mousse. From plate to patch, little fingers are set to become greener thanks to the special tomato growing pack gifted to each child. £15 per child and the hotel’s urban rooftop beehive offers up an tea with a twist.
