Royal Wedding Afternoon Tea at The Rubens
Royal Warrant holders Lanson are sponsoring The Rubens over the Royal wedding weekend by providing guests with a complimentary glass of fizz when joining the hotel for Afternoon Tea. Traditional, Royal family-inspired dishes include lemon curd and poppy seed cupcakes – said to be a favourite of Her Majesty’s – and a gin and tonic cheesecake in homage to her favourite tipple.
