Afternoon tea was delicious! Anna de Codorniu was served by the fantastic staff in this very beautiful surrounding and view over Big Ben. No chocolates were a bit disappointing, but very fine pasteries. Had their own Library Lounge black tea, strong and very good.

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.

    Lovely venue with a beautiful view over the Thames and very nice ambience although room a. It overheated. Attentive service, friendly staff. Very good choice of teas and the ones we chose were high quality. Scones and sandwiches good, cakes a bit over sweet for us. A bit too expensive for anything other than an occasional treat.

    What a wonderful experience, the lounge is so cosy with fantastic views over the Thames. We were made to feel very welcome indeed, service was faultless including frequent pouring of the (genuinely it seems) limitless sparkling wine. We were among the first to benefit from the Christmas themed afternoon tea, the theme was not overdone and worked well, sandwiches scones and cakes were well made and very fresh. There was an adequate selection of tea, water was served without request and coffee at the end of the meal; really all you could ask for from an English tea. Will we go back? most certainly. Would this be a good place to take someone visiting from overseas? Yes, perfect.
