Young fans of the Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, and the new live action remake of Disney’s much loved animation, should hot foot it to Le Meridien Piccadilly near London’s Piccadilly Circus, to experience a wonderful jungle inspired afternoon tea for all the family. Children’s eyes will be out on stalks when they are presented with three tiers of Jungle Book inspired treats including tiger bread sandwiches in honour of baddie Shere Khan, and rainbow fruit skewers inspired by Baloo the bear’s favourite snacks.
Best of all, kids get to decorate their very own snake éclair, inspired by the slippery serpent Kaa. My kids loved having their own mini-piping bag full of luscious cream to pipe into his choux pastry tummy, then decorating his back with jelly beans and sprinkles. Add into the mix banana leaf crudités, hummus, animal print cookies, a cute chocolate coconut and hearty banana scones with pineapple jam in the grand surroundings of Le Meridian’s first floor Terrace Bar and Grill with its arching summer-house style windows and this is the perfect treat during a London day out.
The Jungle Afternoon Tea is now being served from noon to 6pm and costs £15 per person including a Cheeky Monkey Mocktail. Please book 24 hours in advance.
