In celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th Birthday celebrations, The Savoy has launched A Royal Afternoon. In collaboration with The Royal Chef, Darren McGrady, The Savoy will present a menu that’s fit for a Queen and a true representation of what our reigning monarch enjoys when taking tea at the Palace.

Chef Darren McGrady was personal chef to Queen Elizabeth II, Diana, Princess of Wales, and Princes’ William and Harry for 15 years, and has cooked for many US and visiting dignitaries to Buckingham Palace. But it all began here as before his time in the Royal Kitchens, Chef McGrady trained at The Savoy, achieving the position of Chef-de-Partie Saucier. The Savoy is delighted to welcome Chef McGrady back to consult on this special Afternoon Tea menu in collaboration with The Savoy’s Executive Chef, Holger Jackisch.

To be served in the beautiful Thames Foyer, The Savoy’s Royal Afternoon Tea will feature some of Her Majesty’s favourites, which remain on the Royal tea menu today, such as the Jam Pennies Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret loved as young children; Chocolate birthday cake, the recipe of which dates back to Queen Victoria’s chef; and Her Majesty’s absolute favourite, the Chocolate biscuit cake chosen by Prince William for his Groom’s cake.
