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.

    I love the staffs there, the service was absolutely brill:))
    And the truffle pastry (?) one was amazing, I like the fact that we could ask for more of what we liked!!

    It took the service more than 10 minutes before they even noticed we were there and a other 10 minutes before we got our bubbels. The presentation was not in a painters box as the promotion was but traditional. The fingerfood and pastries were oke but not remarkable. The tea menu standard. The tea refill took its time and the wrong pot with the wrong tea was served. I would not recommend this afternoon tea as there is so mutch more quality for the same price in London.

    Went for the mothers' day tea. Place was understaffed and the scones took forever to come out. (We were told eight minutes but it took more like 25). Food itself was average - sandwiches and scones quite good, but the patisserie were not great. Also far too much chocolate going on.
    We went for the quirky presentation advertised - but we just got a standard tea stand, so not pleased.

    Terrible service, after being seated we waited for 20mins before anyone came to take our order and that is only because we called a manager to get someone's attention. Food not flavourful, poor quality, bad flavour combinations, tacky design. Not as in photos. Tea was obviously old as had no scent or clear flavour.

    My mum had a lovely time! I left a request on the booking for it to be made a bit more special as it was my mums birthday and they did just that. From the balloons to the sparkle in the scone. It was lovely, thank you.

    The 'artea' was wonderful, refined flavour and well thought presentation (even preserve in paint tube). A wide selection of tea. The service is also excellent and we could get more of any component. I would recommend this afternoon tea to everyone!

    We had a great time and the food was lovely. Would be good if it was clear whether we could substitute sweet items on the menu for savoury as there were a lot of sweet options.

    Nice place, delicious lollipop surprise

    Visually fun. Attention to detail. Well balanced flavours. Inventive presentation, with each item different eg every savoury was a different bread or a tart, three types of scones etc. All food precisely cooked eg really crisp pastry cases. Fun to choose from a selection of tea and use of brewing timers. Service not stuffy. Room pleasant, not opulent. Smart washroom. Price matches quality and volume of food. Overall portions fine, individual items dainty.
