The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 9DD
Theatres and concert halls tend to have bars where you can buy tea. It’s a useful tip if you want to go somewhere quiet and a bit different. The Royal Opera House Amphitheatre Bar is open during the day for food and drinks and we headed inside to see if they had tea.
They had a range of cake, including macaroons and strange white bricks. We guessed cheesecake but when we asked the barstaff it turned out to be a giant marshmallow. Well, we thought, this doesn’t happen every day, we’ll share one.
It was minty. A big fat peppermint marshmallow. We tried to cut it in half but it sprang back at us and wouldn’t be cut. So I ate half and then my Mum ate the rest. Very strange and didn’t go well with tea. Worth trying, anyway.
The tea was a teabag in a cup job, even though it said a pot on the menu. I was disappointed. Nice view of the bar below though.
Leaf tea? No.
Milk jug? Yes.
Price? £2 I think.
Go again? No.
