Ochre Restaurant Celebrates The National Gallery’s 200th Anniversary with an Exclusive Bicentenary Afternoon Tea

With grandiose English regency in the air due to the anticipated release of Bridgerton season 3, there is no better way to celebrate the National Gallery’s 200th Anniversary than at the contemporary British Restaurant – Ochre, for an exclusive Bicentenary afternoon tea. 

The National Gallery is a pinnacle landmark and an architectural beauty which has housed thousands of collections of European Art from the mid-century. Located in the centre of London Leicester Square, for years the National Gallery has provided members of the public with a grand space to curiously gaze, converse, and digest all things creative. So, pinkies up and get your finest table manners ready to experience the Bicentenary Afternoon Tea to commemorate 200 years of the National Gallery at Ochre Restaurant. 

Begin the Bicentenary Afternoon Tea by choosing your choice of afternoon fizz. On offer is the Bicentenary Bush Cocktail made up of Wood Reserve Whiskey, Disaranno, lemon juice and bitters or a glass of bright and refreshing house champagne. Of course, no afternoon tea is complete without a satisfying selection of tea flavours. Look forward to loose-leaf tea provided by the sustainably sourced brand Good and Proper. Tea selections include the timeless English Breakfast, a delicate white peony, Jasmine pearl and a lulling chamomile with more to choose from. 

An afternoon tea spread so magnificent you might be hesitant to touch, but go ahead, and delight in a selection of soft and plump sandwiches. From ham & tomato with a thin spread of mustard mayonnaise, cucumber and sea salt held together by Cornish butter and a refreshing Severn & Wyn Scottish salmon sandwich with dill crème fraiche.

Moving onto the delightful seasonal sweets bask in a gorgeous selection of macaroon flavours including blueberry, coffee, and flavourful pistachio. As the great afternoon tea flavours and the sublime Ochre interiors might serve as a distraction let the celebrations continue with a slice of the speciality white chocolate and passion fruit Bicentenary birthday cake with other sweet pastries to continue the celebrations. 

For a limited time only, hail the National Gallery’s 200th milestone in style and book the spectacular Bicentenary afternoon tea at the beautiful Ochre Restaurant. 

The Bicentenary Afternoon Tea is priced at £55.00, or £65.00 with a cocktail, Nyetimber Sparkling or Laurent Perrier champagne. National Gallery members can enjoy 10% off on food.
