sketch afternoon tea

20.8.15




















Side note - the lighting in this place was awful, so I apologise for my futile attempts to make the photos look better.

Towards the end of June, my lovely mum decided to treat me and take me to the Sketch gallery on Conduit Street as an early birthday present. Two of my best friends Maddy and Jemma came along as well. I've never felt more like a princess ( so so so so posh ). We had unlimited tea, which is perfect in itself, and then they brought out two cupcake stands packed full of fancy nibbles and desserts. The cheese paninis were so tasty, us three ordered two more each!!

The setting was insane. We spent a good half an hour walking around looking at all the David Shrigley illustrations, and another 20 minutes taking pictures of the toilets ( not the actual toilets, those were in separate little pods ( ?? ) ). But going back to the food again. It was beautifully presented, and the first time I've ever tasted caviar. With little macarons, sandwiches, cakes etc, I wanted to take the whole lot home with me and ration it out.

I loved every bit of my time there, so if you want a fun afternoon out, definitely definitely look into having afternoon tea at Sketch.

  12. If you was a shop then you'd be this, literally. Although the lighting was "terrible" you managed to make it work- is there something you can't do..!
