  2. Hi there. Kelly Michelle mentioned that you had been too the Savoy for tea. Did you have it in rhe Thames Foyer or Beaumont Bar. What did you think? Thanks.

  3. Hi Deanna,
    We had the Art Decadent Tea in the Beaufort bar, its a great afternoon tea! but very different to the traditional section offered in the Thames foyer. We would advise checking the menu first. We would also suggest trying the tradition afternoon tea at the savoy first. We will be putting up a review on the art decadent tea soon.
