Experience Two Michelin-Star dining at restaurant Spectrum, and visit Peacock Alley for all day dining, our iconic Afternoon Tea, and innovative cocktails.
Afternoon Tea is a meal typically enjoyed between 3 pm and 5 pm. This tradition originated amongst the wealthy social classes in England in the 1840s due to dinner time, or supper, being eaten later in the evening. Traditionally, Afternoon Tea consists of delicate sandwiches, cakes, pastries, and of course, scones. Our Afternoon Tea incorporates the rich history of this meal, while adding our own contemporary and playful twist. We create a new Afternoon Tea every season and hope you have the opportunity to try them all!
