The House on Sathorn, located in the 128-year-old mansion directly adjacent to W Bangkok, has a wide range of venues for dining and relaxing, among them The Courtyard, which boasts a serene al fresco setting.

The Courtyard is delightful place for afternoon tea and is now offering a new Heritage Afternoon Tea Set that draws its inspiration from old recipes. Guests can enjoy this soothing mid-day tradition with a menu featuring sweet and savoury favourites all complemented by fine TWG teas.

The Heritage Afternoon Tea Set begins with a refreshing sorbet of the day, followed by traditional scones with home-made marmalade, jam and Devonshire clotted cream. Pastries include Mixed Nuts Biscotti, Canele De Bordeaux and 64-percent Valrhona Chocolate Cake. Tarts on the menu include Macau Egg Tart, Raspberry Tart and Blueberry Cheesecake. Citrus Macaroon and Peach Melba adds citrusy notes to each dish. Hazelnut Caramel Paris Brest, Candy Fruity Mosaic Cake and a Mascarpone with Pistachio Rum Baba complete the menu’s sweet temptations.

Savoury treats for an afternoon tea include Prosciutto-Cheese Mini Bun, Scottish Smoked Salmon Croissants, Spinach-Ricotta Quiche Lorraine and Crab-Cucumber Finger Sandwiches.

The afternoon tea is served daily from 2.30 to 5.30 with each set, priced at Bt1,350-plus, including a selection of TWG teas. Indoor seating is also available.

In addition to the set, guests can enjoy a glass of Chandon Sparkling Wine at Bt420-plus and a one Mini Moet & Chandon (20 cl bottle) at Bt1,350-plus.
