From hot cross bun flavoured ice-cream to spiced currant gin, it seems the country is going nuts for the traditional sweet bake this Easter.

The recently refurbished Royal Lancaster London has announced it too will be jumping on the hot cross bun bandwagon by offering an extra special Easter afternoon tea.

Available exclusively at the plush five-star venue from March 28 until April 3, the delectable treat will be served in the relaxed surroundings of the new Hyde Lobby Bar.

Classic sandwiches such as home smoked maple-cured salmon pinwheels and chicken, piquillo pepper and rocket on turmeric bread will be served alongside a variety of exciting additions for the Easter tea.

Chefs will be crafting mini lamb scotch eggs and prawn cocktail tartlets topped with a spoonful of caviar.

But the star of the show will no doubt be the hotel's hot cross scones, served with homemade hedgerow fruit jam, homemade strawberry jam and Cornish clotted cream.

Hot cross scones anyone?

Those with a preference for the traditional will not be disappointed as the hot cross scones will be accompanied by plain and raspberry scones.

A parade of dainty delights fresh from the pastry kitchen include a chocolate cremeaux flower pot, mini Simnel cake, peppermint macaron and Crème egg lollipop, which will be a sure favourite for big and little chicks alike.

Royal Lancaster London is on the boundary of Hyde Park and recently completed its £80 million refurbishment, which included all 411 guestrooms and suites, the Hyde Lobby Bar and reception lobby for the Nine Kings banqueting space.
