Dalloway Terrace is transforming once again this spring with a bee inspired interior, highlighting their importance within the ecosystem and encapsulating the arrival of the new season.
The terrace has been reimagined by master florist Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart and is adorned with an abundance of wild English flowers creating a kaleidoscope of colour, with oversized bees laced within the meadow styled blossom. A new Honey Bee themed afternoon tea is available alongside a new seasonal menu bursting with fresh flavours.
Newly appointed Head Pastry Chef, Chris Dodd, formerly of Tredwell’s and CafÃƒÂ© Royal has created an exceptional’Honey Bee Afternoon Tea’ taking inspiration from the humble bee and their value to the environment.
Highlights of the Afternoon Tea (£35 per person) include; honey roast ham and English mustard mayonnaise sandwiches served on wholemeal bread, Vanilla scones and Morello cherry scones served with clotted cream, raw honey and homemade jam andLemon shortbread served with lavender honey and blueberry cream crowned with a blueberry glaze.
This spring makeover is also accompanied by a new seasonal menu from Executive Head Chef, Byron Moussouris. Highlights include; Seared scallops, cauliflower puree, poached raisins, granny smith apple £12; Rack of spring lamb served with green beans and toasted almonds (For two, £55) and Seared red snapper served with pickled heritage carrots and lemon dressing (pictured), (£18).
A special vegan dish will also be available on the menu; Green pea falafel, grilled asparagus, tahini dressing and pomegranate seeds (£16).
The restaurant has also added a classic cocktail to the menu aptly named’Bee’s Knees’ (£12), – Hayman’s Gin, Fresh Pressed Lemon and London Honey – with £2 being donated to the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Bumble Bee Conservation TrustÃ¢â‚¬Â charity for every drink purchased.
The seasonal bee inspired installation coincides with the 10th Ã¢â‚¬ËœBee Day’ of luxury London based jeweller, Alex Monroe, who is famous for her iconic bumble bee necklaces and pins. This will be celebrated by the front of house team at Dalloway Terrace who will all be wearing the famous design.
