The Dorchester Launches a Home Delivery Afternoon Tea
London’s hotels are certainly having a tough time of it during the coronavirus lockdown, but if we can’t go to the hotel, then the hotel shall come to us…
The new Dorchester at Home series is a new delivery and collection service that offers some of the luxury hotel’s most popular culinary offerings in the comfort of your own home.
The series launches on Monday 18 May 2020 with an Afternoon Tea inspired by the virtual RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which kicks off on the same day.
The hamper-packed Afternoon Tea will feature all the fare required to recreate this traditional pastime at home, and 100% of proceeds from sales of the teas between 18 to 23 May 2020 will go to The Royal Horticultural Society.
The Dorchester at Home series will continue in June with Traditional Afternoon Tea Hampers and Make It Yourself hampers from The Grill at The Dorchester, offering all the ingredients and recipe cards to create dishes such as Beef Wellington and head chef Tom Booton’s Lobster Thermidor tart. A selection of wines will also be available to order.
A percentage of the proceeds from sales of The Dorchester at Home will be donated to Manorfield Primary, an Tower Hamlets school that The Dorchester supports through its corporate social responsibility partnership.

‘We’re hugely missing welcoming guests into our bars and restaurants right now,’ says Robert Whitfield, Regional Director UK and General Manager The Dorchester.
‘We’ve launched The Dorchester at Home series to bring a taste of The Dorchester into people’s homes until the day when we can warmly welcome them back to us.’
Plus, Parcafé, The Dorchester’s coffee shop overlooking Hyde Park, will be launching a new takeaway menu, available for both delivery and collection, 8am to 7pm, as of Monday 1 June. The menu will feature artisanal coffee, homemade pastries and breakfast and lunch options.
The Dorchester at Home is available to book online at thedorchesterathome.slerp.com. Delivery is available within a 4.5-mile radius of The Dorchester (pricing does not include delivery) or for collection from Parcafé at The Dorchester. All orders must be placed a minimum of 24 hours in advance
