Chocolate Gallery

A charming afternoon tea, sadly lacking in choccy treats

Time Out Says

Decked out with plush seating and views of the Fairmont hotel’s garden, the décor at The Chocolate Gallery is elegant and tasteful. It’s everything you would expect from a standard afternoon tea venue, though more contemporary in presentation; sleek table-wear replaces the more traditional pieces of china.

The staff are courteous and help you select a suitable package for your afternoon.

The food on offer is dainty and bite-sized and there is plenty on the tray for two people, with a fair selection of sweet and savoury. The traditional scones accompanied with jam, cream and honey are delightful, as are the lemon macarons.

Guests also have the option of upgrading to the sparkling package, which is ideal for a special occasion.

Given the venue’s name, it would be fair to expect a signature chocolatey treat to feature. Sadly, though, that is not the case. There is, however, an impressive selection of cakes available for you to buy on your way out, in case you can’t shake off that chocolate itch that thissurely should have scratched.

The bottom line

Traditional stuff in a modern setting.
