Easy London Dining in the West End
While you start the day right with a scrumptious breakfast in a stylish setting, you may choose to while away an indulgent afternoon or evening in charming historic garden surrounds or unwind with a glass of wine in the classic yet contemporary cocktail bar.
Start the day with a sumptuous breakfast served in the stylish yet relaxed surrounds of The Refectory.
Mr Ma’s Afternoon Tea pays homage to the hotel’s literary and cultural connections to Bloomsbury. One of the most important Chinese authors of the last century, Lao She’s novel, Mr Ma and Son, has inspired The Academy’s quintessentially English High Tea with an Asian twist.
The historic novel draws on the writer’s own experiences, following his arrival to 1920s London. Mr Ma and his son journey through the chaotic streets and daily struggles of life in London as they take over an antique shop they have inherited. As they navigate life through the streets of Bloomsbury, their love for tea keeps the connection to their Chinese heritage and allows them to find solace, peace and comfort.
Mr Ma’s Afternoon Tea offers a unique glimpse into the poignant melding of two cultures that have shaped the colourful Bloomsbury neighbourhood of today.
