Dalloway Terrace in London has transformed itself into a spring paradise with a bee inspired interior, which aims to highlight how important they are for the ecosystem. Master florist Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart has reimagined the terrace and decorated it with wild English flowers, creating a kaleidoscope of colour, with oversized bees laced within the meadow styled blossom.
Newly appointed Head Pastry Chef, Chris Dodd, formerly of Tredwell’s and Café Royal has created an exceptional ‘Honey Bee Afternoon Tea’ (priced at £35 per person) taking inspiration from the humble bee and their value to the environment. The menu includes honey roast ham and English mustard mayonnaise sandwiches served on wholemeal bread, Vanilla scones and Morello cherry scones served with clotted cream, raw honey and homemade jam and Lemon shortbread served with lavender honey and blueberry cream crowned with a blueberry glaze.
Executive Head Chef, Byron Moussouris, has also created a new seasonal menu with dishes such as Seared scallops, cauliflower puree, poached raisins, granny smith apple, at £12; Rack of spring lamb served with green beans and toasted almonds, at £55 for two; and Seared red snapper served with pickled heritage carrots and lemon dressing, at £18. A special vegan dish will also be available on the menu: Green pea falafel, grilled asparagus, tahini dressing and pomegranate seeds, at £16.
In addition, the restaurant has also added a classic cocktail to the menu named ‘Bee’s Knees’- Hayman’s Gin, Fresh Pressed Lemon and London Honey, priced at £12, with £2 being donated to the ‘Bumblebee Conservation Trust’ charity for every drink purchased.
The seasonal bee inspired installation coincides with the 10th ‘Bee Day’ of luxury London based jeweller, Alex Monroe, who is famous for her iconic bumble bee necklaces and pins. This will be celebrated by the front of house team at Dalloway Terrace who will all be wearing the famous design.
