Vintage tea room: Betty Blythe
Named after one of Hollywood’s Twenties starlets, the vintage inspired Betty Blythe tea room offers baked delights, afternoon teas and bespoke events.
Situated in the middle of nowhere in a residential part of Hammersmith, you’re unlikely to stumble upon Blythe’s but the tea room cleverly offers a range of baking and cake decorating workshops and doubles up as a popular venue for hen parties and kids tea parties complete with retro dress up box.
The food on offer – think scotch eggs, shortbread cookies, gingerbread biscuits, cakes and pastries – make Blythe’s a great place to stop be buy, it for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea, and with its white table linens and vintage crockery there really is the feel of a vintage tea room about.
Blythe’s Afternoon Tea is definitely worth a try: classic sandwiches, cakes and biscuits with tea or coffee at only £22 a head is great value and you can even bring your own alcohol if you fancy having some fizz or gin and tonic with it.
It’s perhaps just a tad too yummy mummy to be really, truly cool.
