St James’s Hotel promises guests won’t get ‘board’ with new game-themed afternoon tea


St James’s Hotel in London is putting the humble board game under the spotlight this year, with the launch of its new game-themed afternoon tea offering.

The hotel is offering the traditional tea with a twist as the V&A Museum of Childhood is hosting the exhibition ‘Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered’, which looks at the history of games from around the world.

St James’s Hotel has created the theme of afternoon tea based on traditional board games, with executive head chef William Drabble serving up treats inspired by the likes of snakes & ladders, backgammon, chess, monopoly and Scrabble.

All sweet treats will be made up in the hotel’s Michelin start restaurant Seven Park Place and include edible Scrabble letters, cake dice, chocolate chess pieces, shortbread dominoes and chocolate Monopoly hats.
