The Iconic OXO Tower Restaurant in London is launching a brand new Vegan Afternoon Tea which will be available throughout January 2019.

The restaurant, which is on the eighth floor of the iconic OXO Tower on London's South Bank, will offer the tea between January 2-31.

The menu will feature sandwiches, scones, sausage rolls, and desserts. "It's completely homemade, completely plant-based, and completely indulgent," said a spokesperson. "That's what we want from an afternoon tea."

"Our Restaurant has perfected the tradition Afternoon Tea, but there was just one thing missing - a vegan option," the restaurant added. "Why can't we indulge in all our favorites while sticking to a plant-based diet? That was the challenge we set for our chefs, and they delivered.

"The menu has all the classics - homemade scones, clotted 'cream' and even ‘cheese’ sandwiches, but there are a few surprises too, like sage and onion stuffing sandwiches on cranberry bread, chestnut and mushroom 'sausage' rolls and coconut, and pineapple cakes. And don't even get us started on the mini lemon meringue pies.

Vegan Afternoon Tea will be served at OXO Tower Restaurant from January 2-31, Monday to Friday 3pm-4.30pm, Saturday 3pm-4pm and Sunday 3.45pm-4.45pm for £35 per person or £45 with a glass of Prosecco.
