For over 300 years, Fortnum & Mason has been sourcing and selling superb quality tea. In 1926 this famous grocery store was transformed into a unique department store with a restaurant that offered afternoon tea to our customers.
The tradition of taking tea and that little bit of something between lunch and dinner had long been a feature of smart households, and in the Roaring Twenties at Fortnum’s it was defined by a menu featuring our finest teas, delicate sandwiches and exquisite cakes.
The fourth floor was made home to our much-loved St James’s Restaurant in good time for our 250th anniversary in 1957, and specialised in superb dining and fine afternoon tea. So for generations afternoon tea has been an essential part of any visit to 181 Piccadilly.
