Formerly the cobbled driveway to the original station, Hansom Lounge at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London offers a selection of light bites and refined afternoon tea. The historic building has retained many original features including a vaulted roof and Barlow Blue girders.

Light bites on the Hansom Lounge menu include fresh sandwiches and salads, as well as hearty burgers with fries. Sharing boards include an artisan cheese board and a Mediterranean selection, whilst baked passion fruit cheesecake and rhubarb soufflé are amongst the indulgent desserts.

Afternoon tea at Hansom Lounge King’s Cross exudes quintessential indulgence. Start with a selection of sandwiches, including roast beef with horseradish cream, Scottish salmon with dill crème fraiche, and cucumber with mint and lemon and curd cheese. On the sweet section of the menu, scones, cream and jam are joined by the likes of raspberry macarons and lemon drizzle cake. As well as a range of teas, the afternoon tea menu is topped off by a choice of cocktails and champagne.

Housed in an iconic building, Hansom Lounge London sits next to Kings Cross and St Pancras Rail Stations.

    Very good savoury options, not always the case with afternoon tea, often too heavy on the sweet stuff. Very good staff.

    Lovely airy, high ceilinged restaurant, busy, great ambience, as it was the booking in area nearby for the hotel which we found interesting and didn't impact on our experience. Seating was comfortable. Waitress, Eloise, a lovely Australian girl, was superb, very friendly, professional, she explained what all the sandwiches and cakes were etc. We even had a courtesy phone call the day before to ask if we had any allergies etc. which was nice, and our preferences were well catered for. Not as formal as some Afternoon Tea venues, but it was unhurried and relaxing and very enjoyable. We were offered refills of tea and sandwiches etc. which we took advantage of. Consequently we had designer doggy boxes to take home the cakes we couldn't manage to eat at the venue. Would definitely book again in the future. We enjoyed the Railway Children matinee, (a few minutes away) before the tea and then straight on the train home from St. Pancras, what could be nicer.

    The afternoon tea itself was excellent and the service by staff was outstanding: the ambience of the setting was a little lacking - I associate afternoon tea with relaxation so to be surrounded by people clearly having business meetings, working on laptops etc was not the best. Another guest proceeded to have a loud row on the phone for about an hour: it would have been helpful if staff could have suggested that she take the call outside. Then people were clearly setting up for an evening event which involved lights and loud noise. I think a separation of a business lounge for working and meetings and a lounge for afternoon tea would be good,

    My High Tea experience at Hanson Lounge was very enjoyable. The staff are most attentive and looked after me very well. The Hanson Lounge's decor is very agreeable.
    I was taken to my table which was all ready and set up nicely. I really enjoyed the selection of sandwiches, specially the variety of breads used. The warm scones are by far my favourite of all even though the little patisserie were exquisite too! I had spent the day at the Spa on site which was a most magnificent experience, and the time spent in the Hanson Lounge made the day that much more special.
    I most definitely will be back again soon!

    Wir haben den afternoon-tea dort gebucht, weil wir unseren kleinen Hund mitbringen durften. Das Hotel ist sehr Hundefreundlich. Vielen Dank dafür. Das Ambiente ist umwerfend in dieser Halle, allerdings auch ein wenig ein kommen und gehen. Uns hat das nicht gedtört, neun es war interessant. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Das Essen wirklich reichlich, wir hätten beim besten Willen nicht mehr essen können. Dabei hätte man auf Wunsch kostenfrei nachgefüllt! Der Tee schmeckte ebenfalls sehr lecker.
    Die Begleitung durch eine Harfinistin ist wundervoll. Einzig gestört haben die soundproben für ein Event im Saal nebenan. Aber das ist halt so in diesem Moment.
    Wir waren sehr zufrieden und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

    Lovely atmospher with lovely music from a harpist, great decor, fantastic service. The savoury sandwiches and scones were delicious especially the ham sandwich with cranberry bread. The sweet cakes were not all to my liking but the majority were delicious . It was all very well presented and me and my friend were made very comfortable.

    Had Champagne Afternoon Tea - the service was impeccable and they couldn't do enough to make our experience enjoyable! The food was delicious and they were so attentive and refilled the sandwiches without even asking. Would definitely come again.
