Review on The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon, Fortnum & Mason

Formerly the St James's Restaurant it has been renamed The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon in honour of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, located on the fourth floor of the historic Fortnum and Mason, above the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly. The dining room is light and airy, divided into an area for lunch with spaciously set tables and another section with comfortable pale green sofas for a relaxing time over their popular afternoon tea, accompanied by the resident pianist playing gentle airs.

The British menu reflects the very best of seasonal ingredients and you might start with ballotine of rabbit saddle, Waldorf salad and sweet mustard or glazed diver caught Dorset scallops with Pernod butter. Mains follow suit with a fillet of rare breed beef accompanied with a classic garnish or whole roasted lemon sole meuniere, and Cornish squid. Tempting desserts close the show with a vanilla and raspberry mille feuille or a Yorkshire rhubarb pudding paired with rhubarb compote.

There is an excellent wine list as well as their famous house champagne to compliment the food. The atmosphere is very tranquil and relaxed in this elegant restaurant and service as you would expect is impeccable. On Sundays and Bank Holidays they serve a traditional English lunch from their silver trolley.
