afternoon beer tea

The prestigious Rosebery Lounge at London’s exclusive Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park has given its afternoon tea a twist with the launch of beer afternoon tea.

The perfect indulgent festive day out or an amazing gift for a beer-loving friend or family member, the new offering showcases The Rosebery Lounge’s famous afternoon tea treats paired with beers from the UK, the US and Belgium.

The new menu has been put together by the hotel’s food and beverage manager, Nicole Ebner, in collaboration with specialist craft and speciality beer importer Euroboozer.

The beer afternoon tea costs £65 per person plus service charge and can be booked by calling reservations on 020 7201 3828 or e-mailing

Martyn Railton, Euroboozer’s managing director, said: “Beer drinkers are definitely becoming more discerning and not only searching out unique beers, but interesting food pairings too. It’s been a pleasure working with Nicole to launch their new beer menu and put forward some creative matches for their famous afternoon tea.

“We’ve paired three outstanding beers to the tea, whilst also providing Stiegl Goldbräu as the perfect aperitif and Rogue 7 Hop as an ideal digestif. We’re excited to hear what people think.”

Nicole Ebner added: “Whilst I’m obviously a big cake and scone person, I’ve never been a big beer fan, but I was truly converted with the matches devised by Martyn at Euroboozer.

“It has totally redefined my thoughts on beer, so I would recommend the new beer afternoon tea not just to the beer aficionados, but to everyone. Whether it’s a pre-Christmas day out, new year celebration or gift, it’s an amazing present for any beer lover.”
