An iconic London landmark, Hotel Café Royal provides a majestic setting for its elegant afternoon tea. The exquisitely restored Oscar Wilde Bar is the home to their take on the traditional afternoon tea.

Designed by Hotel Café Royal’s talented chefs, their original take on an English tradition includes decadent pastries, cakes, scones, sandwiches and over 20 exclusive tea blends.

Established at Café Royal in London as the Grill Room in 1865, the Oscar Wilde Bar was renamed after its famed patron who once dined and drank here daily, and retains its original Louis XVI detailing. Accompanied by a live pianist, these luxurious surroundings are the perfect setting in which to enjoy a celebrative afternoon tea.

Piccadilly Tube Station is a 3-minute walk away. Please note, Hotel Café Royal kindly requests that the smart casual dress code is observed.

    Food was lovely, ambiance was superb, most of the service was excellent but we were rushed out at the end and was not offered the full food service by the staff, so as this was a birthday visit, it was very disappointing

    It was a lovely experience. The staff were all so friendly. Although I feel the 1hr and a half timing wasn't enough with 4 ppl should've given extra time and there was a delay in bringing the food out. But overall it was really good with an amazing environment,

    It was very lovely. It was an afternoon High Tea shared with my son. It was a lovely setting in the Oscar Wilde room @ the Royal Cafe. the Champagne, Tea, sandwiches, and cakes were all very tasty and you could have as much as you felt was necessary. It appeared the quality was absolutely very high for everything. They had a pianist to help enjoy the moment too! So if you enjoy a relaxing afternoon for conversation with light food, Champagne & Tea then this would be for you.

    Amazing room, great live music, staff were very attentive and helpful but the food did not match the surroundings. The sandwiches were delicious and probably the best part of our afternoon tea. We were very disappointed with the cake selection and the quality of the patisserie. Our mulled wine pannacotta's were not set and in liquid form with the other cakes on the tray all being praline based, very bland, heavy to eat and tasted very similar to each other. Maybe we came on a bad day but for the amount spent we expected a higher standard. With some small tweaks and changes to the cake selection this could be a great afternoon tea.

    Too service. Sandwiches and tea were amazing. Desserts not so much. Would still recommend anyone to experience afternoon tea here.

    We had a wonderful Afternoon Tea, amongst the best ever. Leaves nothing to be desired, beautiful sandwiches, especially the salmon, lovely presentation of the food in general, delicious cakes, very good piano player, not too loud, nice staff, explaining everything and getting extras very quickly, gor beautiful tea present for. Xmas afterwards, very nice extra gift, great value for the price... all in all no difference to more expensive venues... very much too be recommended !!!!
