I had fond memories of having high tea at The Observatory and wanted to revisit for my birthday last year. I must have been living under a rock because The Observatory is long gone, it is now part of the Langham Hotel group but happily, high tea is still offered in the same Globe Bar.
High tea on the weekend costs $59 per person (without champagne or any other extras). Be sure to mention if it is a special occasion such as a birthday when booking because they will probably prepare a little treat for you!
One of the reasons I like having high tea in the Globe Bar is the elegant dining room. The high backed chairs, wood paneling and tall bookshelves make you feel like you're truly indulging in old school decadence.
As I mentioned, it was my birthday and to my delight, a little dessert tray was brought out which incited a rousing rendition of happy birthday.
It was a lovely way to end the high tea and I felt very spoiled.
