Jättebra och trevlig personal, lungt och härlig avkopplande. Mycket bubblor, glaset var aldrig tomt, riktigt goda sandwich och bakverk.
Kommer att boka igen. Rekommenderar verkligen att gå på afternoon Tea här.

Offering postcard-worthy views over Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Afternoon Tea at The Library Lounge is housed in the Marriott County Hall Hotel. In this landmark building, gorgeous library-style surroundings offer old world charm.

On The Library Lounge menu, freshly-cut finger sandwiches feature traditional fillings with a refined twist, with offerings like cucumber & mint, Surrey duck egg mayonnaise and succulent roast beef with horseradish. Irresistible arrangements of cakes and fancies include English rhubarb and white chocolate lollipop or Valrhona chocolate mousse, as well as sweet and savoury scones served with seasonal jams and artisanal cheeses.

Piled high bookshelves and plush armchairs make for wonderfully cosy surroundings at The Library Lounge London. Luxurious liquid accompaniments include fine leaf teas, elegant flutes of champagne and sparkling wine, and cleansing gin cocktails.

A quintessentially English retreat in one of the city’s most vibrant areas, The Library Lounge South Bank is 4 minutes’ walk from Waterloo Station. The Library Lounge can be accessed via the main entrance to the London Marriott Hotel on Westminster Bridge Road. Alternatively, enter via the South Bank (Queen's Walk), above the London Aquarium. Valet parking is also available on site.

    Lovely location next to the river, elegant surroundings and helpful friendly staff. The tea was lovely and the bubbles generous. We were unhurried and well looked after. A much nicer experience than tea at the Ritz!

    Pleasant although not very "glamorous". Is what it is ...a Iibrary setting. More a place for an older senior citizen clientele. Very quiet. Tables spaced wide apart . Staff very helpful and friendly. Good mix of sandwiches although bread was a little dry. Lovely scones, sweet and savoury with the appropriate butter/cream/jam and tiny tiny cakes. Unlimited bubbles - had to call a halt as they were going to our heads! Choice of a dozen or so teas. All in all a pleasant and relaxing but not outstanding experience.

    A group of us went to the Library Lounge for the afternoon tea with bubbles and had an excellent time. The food is gorgeous and plenty of it and they are very generous with the bubbles, we never had an empty glass. The service is good and I would definitely recommend it. The views across the Thames to Westminster are amazing.

    Fabulous place! We did the afternoon tea with free flowing bubbles and it is exactly that. The library is a beautiful setting, clean and the staff are great.
    Food and bubbles are top notch and the staff ensure your topped up as soon as your glass is declining! Love it and highly recommend to all who like the fizz.

    This was a delightful afternoon tea experience. The food was delicious. We had opted for the unlimited Prosecco option and the staff, who were very friendly, never once let our glasses empty.

    Really lovely views of London

    Overall, I had another great time at The Library Lounge, where I enjoyed the afternoon tea with free-flowing prosecco with my sisters. It was my fifth time, my sisters' first, and they were suitably impressed. We were kept topped up with bubbly at all times, thankyou! The only downside I can think of is that the lounge is very hot, so maybe better air-conditioning?

    Excellent value, pleasant and friendly staff, truly unlimited bubbles and varied selection of sandwiches, scones & little cakes. The view of the river and Westminster is amazing. Thank you all for making our afternoon thoroughly enjoyable, especially Alexandra.
