An iconic Ne­wham land­mark has in­spired the launch of an af­ter­noon tea at Crown Plaza Lon­don Dock­lands where the em­pha­sis is on lo­cal pro­duce.

The cen­tre piece of Tea at the Docks is a home baked trea­cle tart, made with Tate & Lyle golden syrup, orig­i­nally pro­duced at the com­pany’s sugar re­fin­ery, a fea­ture of the Royal Docks land­scape since 1883.

Crowne Plaza Lon­don Dock­lands gen­eral man­ager Daniel Loosley said: “This area has un­der­gone a huge pos­i­tive trans­for­ma­tion over the past few decades and, in turn, we are con­stantly work­ing to im­prove the ex­pe­ri­ence we of­fer to guests.”

“The whole team is ex­cited to be launch­ing this fresh, ex­cit­ing new af­ter­noon tea menu.”

Billings­gate smoked salmon, Wilt­shire cured ham, Hill Farm cu­cum­ber and High Weald hens’ eggs are used to fill the lux­ury sand­wiches and the menu also in­cludes fruit scones with clot­ted cream and straw­berry pre­serve, pas­tries, cakes and a se­lec­tion of teas.

Daniel said: “Be­ing able to pro­vide the very best lo­cally-sourced in­gre­di­ents for an af­ford­able price was at the fore­front of our think­ing when putting this new menu to­gether.”

The af­ter­noon tea menu is avail­able now for £19.50pp at the ho­tel’s Dock­lands Bar And Grill. If you’re feel­ing deca­dent you can add a glass of Cham­pagne for £9.

Crowne Plaza Lon­don Dock­lands has been lo­cated on Royal Vic­to­ria Dock since 2003 and has con­trib­uted to the area’s re­gen­er­a­tion by pro­vid­ing a work­place for res­i­dents and a base for vis­i­tors to the area.

The restau­rant has floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows with views of the dock, The O2 and Ca­nary Wharf.
