Festive sparkle and spice at the Sheraton Park Tower Hotel

The Sheraton Park Tower, a Luxury Collection Hotel located in the chic Knightsbridge area of London, is adding a taste of Christmas to its traditional afternoon tea with a revamped festive menu offering eggnog, champagne, spicy fruit scones and a range of other delicious delights.

A haven for tired Christmas shoppers and those seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of London, the Sheraton Park Tower is the perfect place to refuel.  With its new Christmas afternoon tea menu, the hotel’s opulent Knightsbridge Lounge is ideal for a break from the merry madness of Christmas shopping.

Alongside traditional sandwiches and teas, the Christmas afternoon tea menu will offer orange custard pastries, moka rolls, chocolate chip brownies and rich dark cake slices.  Also on the menu are spicy fruit scones made with cinnamon, vanilla, sultanas, blackcurrants, orange confit and red glazed cranberries.  All the Christmas treats are prepared by the hotel’s resident pastry chef, Dominic Bhora.

In addition, the Sheraton Park Tower’s Festive Afternoon Tea will also feature eggnog, a traditional Christmas drink made with eggs, vanilla, cream, milk, bourbon, brandy and spices, a frothy alternative to mulled wine which will warm the spirits of any Christmas shopper.

Commenting on the Sheraton Park Tower’s new festive offering, Tristan Nesbitt, Hotel Manager said:  “With Christmas being such a magical time we wanted to add to our guests’ experience by spicing up our afternoon tea menu.  With our beautiful Knightsbridge Lounge as the backdrop, the lovely festive food and own-recipe eggnog is a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping.”


The Sheraton Park Tower’s Festive Afternoon Tea is available from 1st November until 15th January 2012.
