‘I don’t belong in this family,’ said my little daughter, ‘there are too many boys.’

‘I know exactly what you mean,’ I said, ‘lets run away and do something just for the girls.

So we did. We’d been very kindly invited to a Peter Pan Morning Tea by The Langham in Sydney’s Rocks.

This grand hotel is housed in a beautiful heritage building. It’s all 5-star opulence with lashings of  old fashioned service and style.


Like its namesake in London, The Langham puts on a marvellous high tea. At The Langham this is known as a Tiffin Tea, and is served daily. You can have your tea leaves read at weekends there.

The children’s morning tea is a feature of each school holidays and it really is a treat.

Each children’s morning tea in school holidays has a different theme. We experienced the Peter Pan Morning Tea, with pirate themes for the food, then a reading from the famous book. The children each received a copy of Peter Pan to take home too.

But it’s not all about the children, look at this platter of tiny treats which yours truly scoffed, in a ladylike manner of course.

The table settings are just a delight. What a sharp contract to our boy-filled home in school holidays.
The children can colour in as they wait for their morning tea to arrive.

Costing $30 for children and $49 for adults, morning tea at the Langham is a terrific treat. It’s one that will fill you up, so no need for more meals on the day that you visit – a cost saving!

Many thanks to The Langham Sydney for hosting Minnie The Minx and I.

We very much enjoyed some mother and daughter time, and escaping from rugby-mad twin and great big hairy teenage brothers.

Have you enjoyed a high tea or morning tea these school holidays?

Would you take your sons?

Happy munching,

    What a special time for a mummy and her little girl. My daughter is 18 and she still needs time alone just with me – she’s sandwiched between two loud and attention-demanding boys. I love the look of the bathroom – thought it was the lounge! xx

      Yes, that loo is grand. It’s doubly hard when two of our boys have ASD/ADHD, they really are so… boyish… she’s so settled by comparison. A delight to spend time with… usually!

    I think I’m in love. Oh yum! I would definitely take my little girl here for a girls day! Maybe rounding up some aunts and nanas… Not a chance would I take my little boy, at least not in the foreseeable future! Maybe when he hits twenty-one? Twenty-five?

    1. says: Seana Smith

      LOL, I can’t imagine my boys ever being couth enough to take here. But I was deeply impressed to see a Mum there with her four extremely well behaved children, including boys. Was taking notes.

    1. says: Seana Smith

      I think I became a really boysy mum and she’s a very girly girl… she’s made me more girly over time, but what she really longs for is a sister… but no can do.

    oooh so excited, we are going on Friday for The Preschoolers 4th birthday! What a treat. Apparently kids are encouraged to dress up and there is a storyteller too?

    1. says: Seana Smith

      Yes, some of the little girls had marvellous dresses on. A lady reads from the story, not a huge excerpt but a chunk and then gives books to the kids – lovely. Next time we’d dress up more, the hotel is very grand indeed.

    Such a sweet thing (pun!) to do with your girl. I am inspired to take my girls. I think the Langham is very clever to create a ‘little girl’ high tea experience. x
