What is not to love when it comes to afternoon tea? Finger sandwiches, selection of cakes, warm scones and tea on tap - dreamy. And when it comes to dining in luxury, we all want to head to Sketch London for a slap in the face of pink, rose gold and velvet. Upon my bank holiday expedition to London town for a girls weekend, I knew we had to head over to Sketch to indulge in the glory and it was everything I expected it to be.
Booking Sketch was super easy, I booked it online and just picked the time we would like to go. We opted for the first appointment which is 12:30pm, i'd recommend doing this as the room is empty as you enter and sets such a gorgeous vibe. You can also grab a good snap for your instagram of the empty room before it's filled with people! Entering the building itself is an experience, it's dark and somewhat eery with tranquil music playing and funky artwork. The Gallery room (the pink one) is at the back of the building past the other rooms so you can take a sneak peak.
The food was wonderful. I've had a good look at other images and it would seem the pastrys alter slightly however we had finger sandwiches filled with coronation chicken, cucumber, salmon, egg and cress (complete with quails egg and caviar on top) and a mini croque monsieur. For desserts we had battenberg cake, pistachio cake, blackberry tart, a coffee and chocolate cake, little pot of mouse and some marshmallows. The attention to detail is incredible - from the caviar on the egg sandwich, gold flake on the cake and a croque monsieur wrapped in a cute little pink bow. The service was also amazing and I can't fault it; if your glass was less than full or you'd taken a glug of your tea, someone was right over filling it up again. All the food was complimentary and you could have as much as you like, we took advantage and definitely ordered another plate of sandwiches!
Of course, the infamous egg toilets! They are as weird as they look, but the lighting in the fish eye style mirrors is just made for a selfie. Even if you don't need to go (which, after all that tea I would be surprised!) pop in just to have a look. 
We paid £51 each for the afternoon tea including the service charge so it is by no means a cheap option but I would highly recommend enjoying the experience if just once, the food is great, the atmosphere is so calming and it was perfect for a catch up with the girls. Tweet me if you have any questions, and let me know if you've ever been!
