‘It’s all in the game’ for St James Hotel


Luxury London boutique, St James Hotel & Club has launched a new concept of afternoon tea, in the style of a board game.

Aptly named, It’s All In The Game, the new menu has been designed by executive head chef William Drabble, who heads up the hotel’s in-house Michelin star restaurant Seven Park Place.

The theme of the afternoon tea is based around original board games, including traditional favourites such as: Snakes & Ladders, Backgammon, Chess, Monopoly, Scrabble, Dominoes and Ludo, all available to play at the hotel.
