I asked at The Ritz if I can go there…
The Ritz doesn’t want my cup and saucer :(
Greetings from The Ritz London. I hope this email finds you well. Many thanks for your email and your approach. Given The Ritz London’s reputation for Afternoon Tea, the visual image of our tea service is an integral aspect of our brand. Therefore, to promote someone drinking tea/coffee in The Ritz but from a cup and saucer that is not our own I feel undermines our brand somewhat. Therefore, please accept my apologies but we are unable to accommodate this request.
All the best,
