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.

Great afternoon tea! The prosecco just kept coming! Amazing views across the river, attentive staff who catered to my allergy, good mixture of sandwiches, scones and cakes! Would definitely recommend this experience.

The service was friendly and efficient. We had a wide choice of teas and the food looked and tasted good and we were offered more scones and sandwiches. As advertised, our glasses were topped up with champagne throughout the meal.

Excellent location looking out on the Thames and Big Ben in a large and spacious lounge area, the former library of the GLC. Service was very good with an excellent choice of teas and free flowing bubbles for upwards of two hours. The food was very good, a choice of sandwiches, scones and cakes, as was the service. We were offered more food and the few things we didn't eat we were given in a carry out. Well worth the visit in this memorable location.

The best feature of the library lounge is the ambience. I have been with different friends half a dozen times and always enjoy it. I do not like the 12 and a half service charge added on.

I love this place, it's so cute and friendly. I've been a few times over a couple of years and it never disappoints! The staff are friendly and attentive. The food is great I loved the mini quiche that was a nice surprise.. Although there was a 2 hour limit we didn't feel rushed, and we were able to finish our drinks in the bar, which was also very good with gorgeous cocktails.. We had a lovely day, thank you
