Afternoon Tea at The Bloomsbury, London

The Bloomsbury Hotel, 16-22 Great Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, WC1B 3NN +44 2081281471

The Dalloway Lounge at the Bloomsbury Hotel is a very stylish location, though not very cosy! The afternoon tea was tasty; sandwiches, cakes and tea were refreshed on demand. Staff were helpful and friendly.

With 15 types of tea from The Rare Tea Company on offer, Festive Afternoon Tea at The Bloomsbury Hotel is both traditional and extravagant. Amidst the leafy Georgian squares of Bloomsbury, The Grade II-listed Bloomsbury Hotel is a fittingly elegant location for an exquisite afternoon tea experience.

The Bloomsbury Hotel Afternoon Tea offers a vast range of teas, alongside sandwiches and freshly baked scones and cakes. Sandwiches include pastrami, rocket, and Dijon mayonnaise on onion bread, smoked salmon with crème fraiche on Guinness bread, and cream cheese, chive and cucumber on tomato bread. Follow this with a freshly baked scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam, and choose from the selection of sweet treats including lemon meringue and Victoria sponge.

For extra indulgence, add some English sparkling wine from Sussex’s Ridgeview vineyard.The surroundings are timelessly sophisticated, with rich red furnishings and elegant chandeliers throughout the hotel.

Close to The British Museum and the West End, The Bloomsbury Hotel in London is a 2-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road Tube Station.

    Nothing special, over priced by £5 - £10. The tea itself was terrible, finger sandwiches were good and most of the sweets were average at best.

    Service was slow due to staff being busy. Cream and jam delivered for scones too late. Expected an
    Plate of sandwiches separate from the cakes.

    Very good service on the Dalloway Terrace! The tea was delicious. Not much cream for four scones between two people though! A very small dish I've gotten as single serving in other locations. Also the sandwiches were a bit ho hum.. although the salmon one was delicious. For the price, more cream and better/a few more sandwiches.

    Disappointing. I had booked online and called the venue in advance to request to sit on the festive themed terrace for a Christmas celebration with one of my important clients. Due to a private event we were unable to sit on the terrace which was a shame as this was the main reason we had chosen to come to The Bloomsbury.

    The afternoon tea itself was very average and definitely not the standard I expected from a top London hotel. I regularly take clients out for meals and treats in the city and I would not come back here or recommend to any of my colleagues

    This was a really nice experience. The Bloomsbury was a beautiful place and the staff was friendly. The tea and food was quality stuff, allthough some flavours were a bit british for our palette. The scones were amazing.

    Lovely afternoon tea in cosy surroundings. Did 5pm sitting, which was ideal. Excellent service, would certainly go back again!
