In tribute to the famed patron and return of one of his most celebrated plays to London’s West End, The Importance of Being Earnest, Hotel Café Royal launches a new Oscar Wilde Experience for summer 2014.

Nestled between the elegance of Mayfair and the creativity of Soho, Hotel Café Royal’s Oscar Wilde Experience includes a two night stay in a deluxe accommodation with daily English breakfast, The Importance of Being Earnest Champagne Afternoon Tea in the historic Oscar Wilde Bar and tickets to The Importance of Being Earnest at the Harold Pinter theatre steps from the hotel, for two people. This exclusive experience also includes a special edition Smythson diary, bound in soft leather, depicting one of Wilde’s iconic quotes.

Served in the spectacular surroundings of the Oscar Wilde Bar, originally established in 1865, which has been stunningly restored to its authentic Louis XVI detailing, Hotel Café Royal’s Executive Chef Andrew Turner has created a unique and playful Importance of Being Earnest themed Afternoon Tea taking inspiration from the play’s characters and history. Featuring a selection of tea sandwiches, pastries, scones and cakes as well as additional ‘savoury terminus’ dishes, guests are treated to an array of flavours. The selection of tea sandwiches includes everyman’s smoked wild boar, crackling, pickled apple and English mustard bun; cured venison and pear chutney sandwich with red onion marriage and gold puff goat’s cheese and wine jelly engagement, followed by a range of decadent pastries, amusingly titled chocolate box ‘n’ ring; Lady Bracknell lollipop and Dandy raspberry regent. Enjoying Afternoon Tea in the Oscar Wilde Bar revisits a golden era, and is the very room that Oscar Wilde himself frequented daily for lunch at precisely 1pm, ordering the same dish, and where great minds came together to discuss great ideas.

Hotel Café Royal’s Oscar Wilde Experience starts from GBP1,250, inclusive of 20% VAT, based on double occupancy, for a two night stay, valid until 20 September 2014 and is subject to availability. The Importance of Being Earnest Afternoon Tea is served daily from 2pm.
