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.

    There were three of us for tea celebrating a belated birthday and it was just the right setting we were fortunate enough to get a window seat in a nice cubicle so very private. Although a miserable day outside it was still lovely to watch the river traffic whilst having a good conversation. The staff were very attentive without being intrusive and the "bubbles" flowed, we were never without an empty glass. The food was lovely, it didn't look a lot but it was very filling. Lovely sandwiches, loved the sour cream and chives with the savoury scones and what can you say about clotted cream and jam with the fruit scones other than yummy. Loved the little cakes too, we were all stuffed when we left and a little tipsy.

    Disappointing. Not champagne but sparkling wine.....shouldn't advertise as Champagne! Dry sandwiches and vile desserts. Only thing good was tea and scones.

    Great setting and view of the Thames. Nice venue itself. The food and bubbles were great quality and free flowing.

    The staff were very polite and attentive.

    We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, even if we did overindulge.

    Great value, would definitely recommend.
