Review: Disney's Into the Woods Afternoon Tea, Sketch

Mayfair's Sketch has teamed up with Disney to offer a magical woodland inspired afternoon tea to celebrate the release of Into the Woods on DVD and Blu-ray. For a limited time their classic afternoon tea menu will be recreated to include a selection of the Baker and his Wife's pastries. As you can see, Sketch's Pastry Chefs have really gone to town on retelling the tale with their fantasy treats.
Hidden behind an emerald green curtain, Sketch's Glade room is the perfect backdrop for this fairytale woodland treat. As soon as you step through the curtain you really do feel as if you've been transported into an enchanted forest. The eclectic mix of furniture helps to add to the outdoor feel including peacock chairs and rattan furniture. With songs playing straight from the film, you're sure to feel right at Disney home.
A selection of assorted finger sand-witches include: smoked salmon & Jacob's cream, cucumber & ricotta, Prince pesto panini with mozzarella and egg & mayonnaise with quail egg and caviar.

The toasted paninis come wrapped in a ribbon, just like you'd imagine Little Red Riding Hood's mum to pack into her basket ahead of her journey into the woods. The extra special finishing touches really do make the sand-witches magical.

Next up, plain and fruit scones served with clotted cream and a choice of homemade fig or strawberry jam. Quite possibly the best scones I've had in a long time. Beautifully light, fluffy and not too crumbly.

As expected, the enchantment continues onto the pastries. With Jack's beanstalk tart and Little Red Riding Hood choux buns. Almost too beautiful to eat! Other sweets include Earl Grey macarons, rhubarb & raspberry cheesecake, Cassis meringue, Malabar marshmallows, chocolate mint cake and pineapple, coriander & coconut sponges.
The afternoon tea comes with a large choice of Jing teas or Champagne if you fancy a few bubbles.

Well and truly in the fairytale mood, I considered leaving a trail of crumbs to follow my route back - except there just weren't any left!

And as for the film...with such a great cast, gorgeous costumes and a mix of all my favourite childhood fairytales, I think its safe to say this is my favourite Disney film in a long time. Forget 'Let it Go', the Into the Woods song will definitely get stuck in your head!

To coincide with the DVD release on 18th May, tea in the woods will be available between 18th May - 7th June. For reservations, visit their website here.

I was asked to review the afternoon tea by Premier Comms and was not paid for this review. All opinions are honest, and my own.
