This was booked for my birthday. Table was set up and organised for us. The concept of tea and art is a great idea and that is followed through the whole experience. We were very impressed with the selection of food, and there was lots of it. Service from all the staff also excellent.

The Afternoon Tea at Lancaster London offers classic British treats in Paddington. With irresistible food and a sophisticated setting, guests are treated to tea, sandwiches and scones, followed by sweet bites from the pastry chef.

The Lancaster afternoon tea menu features smoked salmon sandwiches, coronation chicken tartlets and egg and wild cress choux buns. Guests are also offered plum and raisin scones with homemade strawberry jam and clotted cream, topped off by sweet pastries and cakes including pistachio macaron and apple and honey cupcake. This is of course all accompanied by a choice of fine teas.

Guests can also retire to the well-stocked lounge bar serving a broad choice of wines and light snacks. Plush plum seating and dark woods continue the theme of subtle sophistication that is on display throughout the hotel.

With verdant views from the 1st floor, The Lancaster London Hotel is just a 1-minute walk from Lancaster Gate Tube Station.

    My friends and I had a very enjoyable afternoon tea. We loved the food and cakes were light and delicious. We didn't like the low seating as we couldn't get our legs under the tables and we're sitting at uncomfortable angles. Would have preferred a table with chairs.

    The 'Art Lovers' Festive Afternoon Tea had a real WOW factor. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience :-)
    The staff were very friendly, attentive without being intrusive.
    Would definitely recommend!! :-)

    The scones were okay, not great. There was too much chat from the head-waiter. We just wanted to eat our afternoon tea and he was very muddled in explaining the history, which we didn't really need. The idea of an art tea was good but the cream in a paint tube really didn't work; it looked cheap!

    halloween theme music was very loud and all those decoration was a bit odd. (pumpkins and skulls object were from Pound shop which makes the atmosphere and experience less glam)
    Sandwiches and scones werr nice but sweets are not so much, everything tasted too much of sugar, especially the spider lollipop was just too much ganache inside and exploded in a horrible way. Eclair had very nice spooky decoration, however cream was granular and white choc finger is too big. Cupcakes are probably made with oil that I don't like. Chocolate mousse tasted nice. Very negative towards sweet section but Scones were lovely and warm, I couldn't tell which one was the pumpkin and plain but all nice, as well as Sandwiches were also lovely.
    Tea was served in a glass teapot with a teabag, not loose tea, and no teabag tray so I had to keep a teabag in a pot for a long while, not good at all.
    Staff were very friendly and nice happy people, they come around to the table very often, however, when we ask another tea, scones, bill, etc.. there was a long waiting time. Staff seems not communicating well about guests so we had asked the same questions many times from a different staff.
    I wouldn't pay £35 for that to be honest, rather spend ten pounds more and go somewhere else, but if you are looking for something casual, no dress code, absolute kids friendly, a little bit better than a cream tea experience, then this is the right place.

    The art afternoon tea at the Lancaster was great. The theme was Halloween and the room was decorated appropriately. The staff were excellent and complemented the theme with stories and costume. We thoroughly enjoyed the vast choice of teas and would recommend the Lancaster highly. The scones, sandwiches and pastry were delicious and presented in a very creative way.
