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.

    Afternoon Tea was a delight. The service was brilliant with no delays, and the food was delicious. Add to that the ambience and the river view and it's a match made in heaven. Not to be missed.

    My favourite dish was the quiche it was lovely and so the earl grey tea and also the smoked salmon sandwich. The lady who severed us was very nice and frendliy and she looked after us very well and she started chatting to us as well. The location was very good it was near the window and we can see big ben it was a very good view.

    Service was actually pretty incredible considering it was unlimited prosecco - my glass barely made it to halfway full before it was topped up. Seriously impressive service and great non pretentious venue

    Very good thank you. Few places serve proper Sunday roast, so it would be good to have a roast instead of afternoon tea...

    Food was so much nicer on this visit. It had become a bit 'same' as we do come often.
