Just a quickie for now for Bob Bob Ricard.
Mr B and I popped in on the off chance for a coffee and something a bit stronger. Very glad we did. As we walked off the busy Soho street into BBR we were welcomed by friendly staff. The first thing that struck us was the decor...just like being in first class on the Orient Express but with a twist. We were ushered to the bar area where we could see the whole room being worked by efficient staff.
We ordered two coffees and a 12 year old Macallan and sat back to enjoy the peace and quiet and to watch the food being served to the diners, especially the Beef Wellington. The coffee was good but the whiskey was better, we were served by a great bar tender who was really enthusiastic and knew his drinks. We got chatting with him and the restaurant manager Jeremiah, it was really refreshing to meet staff and management who were genuinely happy to see us and to answer our questions. We found out why Bob Bob Ricard was called Bob Bob Ricard, who the owners are, how many covers, how many rooms, opening times we were also invited to see the downstairs bar and more but alas another afternoon tea review was beckoning us over in Mayfair.
Before we left Jeremiah gave us the BBR afternoon tea menu and it looks great...Mr B and I are most definitely going back again. Who can resist some of these tempting examples from the menu; English Rose Profiterole / Battenburg / Raspberry & Custard Tart / Scones with homemade jam and clotted cream / a finger sandwich selection made with tantalising breads and a selection of teas to make you weep /AND an option of home made pink lemonade or the best champers ever - Pol Roger (if it's good enough for Winston Churchill, it's good enough for Teasemaid)....afternoon tea review coming soon x
