Name-dropped in The Independent’s Top 50 Tea Rooms in the UK, Bea’s of Bloomsbury is housed within a lovingly-converted, 19th-century former bank. Known for its intricately-crafted sweet things, guests can watch the chefs at work in the open-plan pastry kitchen.

Bea’s tea room in is famed for its afternoon tea offering, which includes signature cakes as well as traditional finger sandwiches, freshly-baked scones with heaps of clotted cream and jam, and a choice of fine tea blend. A flute of chilled champagne can be enjoyed for extra-special indulgence, and gluten-free and vegetarian teas are available at prior request.

Piled-high stands of hand-crafted marshmallows, meringues, brownies, cookies and cupcakes adorn the interior of Bea’s in London, with all baked goods featuring Bea’s elaborate signature design.

This bright and airy home-from-home has been bringing delectable baked goods to the neighbourhood since 2008. Find Bea’s in Holborn just 8 minutes’ walk from Holborn Station.

    Service was excellent. Cakes were good but would not go acknowledge because both my gluten free bread and my Daughter 's wheat bread (for sandwiches) was stale, dry and corners turning up.

    Lovely, very quaint, staff are great, informative, friendly yet leave you alone as well. Food is amazing, very tasty and satisfying for a high tea

  • ((((( by from California

    It was lovely. Amazing scones, great flavors and varieties of sandwiches and treats. Really too much food for tea, but they boxed up what we didn't finish and it made a perfect dessert for later.

    Lovely experience. I would recommend that the staff make diners aware that they can just have a (extremely delicious) slice of cake etc.and don't have to go for the full 'afternoon tea' options. It's a lovely, cosy place with a great atmosphere.

    Very cosy and nice little place. Sandwiches were not interesting, all the cakes were good. The tea was average. All in all a nice experience with very nice staff but much too pricy.

    The high tea was good.

  • ((*** by from Holborn

    I was completely disappointed with the High Tea 2 friends and I ordered for a Birthday celebration. It was expensive. The table was uncomfortably small. Various tea's were ordered but served to the wrong people - a small mistake. But upon asking the Manageress to replace one of the teas, she argued that it was our fault and that our waitress would have checked. The manageress stacked chairs on 2 tables right next to ours 30 mins before closing. We complained that it made us feel rushed and uncomfortable which ensued in an almighty explanation and argument that was still going on after we left. We left disappointed, with a horrible atmosphere. Unimpressed. There is too much emphasis on cupcakes with thick greasy icing, and the joy of lovely fresh baked goodies has been lost.

    Pleasant staff. Rather cramped. Average food regarding taste.
