Afternoon tea was excellent. The service was excellent too. The restaurant was quiet, just right for meeting old friends and catching up.

Bringing sumptuous international dining to the luxurious setting of the Kingsway Hall Hotel, Harlequin Restaurant treats diners to the finest seasonal cuisine, in a relaxed and bright setting.

Frequently changing to include the freshest ingredients, the Harlequin Restaurant menu is packed with expertly prepared British dishes, like a delicate pan-fried Brixham sea bass with piperade, green beans, sautéed potatoes and basil essence. A well crafted wine list boasts bottles from around Europe, served by efficient and friendly waiting staff.

Elegant afternoon tea is also served at the Harlequin Restaurant in Holborn, incorporating dainty finger sandwiches, warm homemade scones and a mouth-watering array of delicate cakes and pastries. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available when requested in advance, while champagne can be added for an extra sense of occasion.

Blending traditional style with contemporary tweaks,the Harlequin Restaurant London is warmly lit, with foliage scattered throughout, and glass panelling up the central staircase. It sits just 2 minutes’ walk from Holborn Tube Station.

    Lovely restaurant and lovely athmospere. We booked for an afternoon tea on a Sunday afternoon and we really enjoyed ourselves. Good quality of pastries, tasty sandwiches and great whitehall black tea! Very polite and professional staff, strongly recommend this place.

    The experience was good. I was there before having the Afternoon Tea and I think that first time the food was better. The scones and the food could have been fresher and the first time we could repeat also the sandwiches without aditional charge. They also forgot to come and ask us about a second tea round. But overall it was a nice experience.
