For my 50th birthday present my parents took me, my husband and two children for afternoon tea in The Georgian Restaurant at Harrods. It was my Dad's suggestion, as I have mentioned in previous posts, my grandfather and various aunts and uncles worked for Harrods so there is a long family association. My first haircut was at Harrods, my pram came from Harrods, lots of my toys too and I used to go to the children's parties at the Harrodian Club in Barnes. So when he suggested it I was delighted to accept.
We made a day of it, drove down and parked nearby, then had a look around Harrods, but as it was the Sunday before Christmas it was VERY busy! But we enjoyed the Food Hall and I took a look at some dream handbags.
The Georgian Restaurant is really lovely, I liked looking at all the old photos of it through the years. The service is excellent and the afternoon tea delicious. I had to have mine with some pink champagne of course. We had the added bonus that local schoolchildren were performing in a Christmas Choir in the restaurant which was very cute and perfect to listen to them singing the Christmas carols.
