Sitting in an enviable setting right on the Strand, Lounge Bar Strand Palace Hotel treats diners to elegance and British tradition for its famed afternoon teas.

The varied compositions of the afternoon teas on the Lounge Bar menu offer eclectic choice for diners, while still retaining the traditions that have made British afternoon tea such an institution. Delicate fingers sandwiches can be filled with options like premium thinly sliced salmon, while the cakes are served alongside moist raisin scones with clotted cream and jam. A special champagne afternoon tea brings an indulgent kick to proceedings, with a carefully selected bottle being served with English teacakes and other treats.

In addition to the afternoon teas, Lounge Bar Strand Palace Hotel London also offers a selection of light meals, including tapas-style sharing platters of meatballs in spicy tomato sauce, and classic tomato brushchetta. There are also heartier options for larger appetites.

Lounge Bar Strand Palace Hotel is surrounded by local theatres, and sits moments from Charing Cross Station and Covent Garden.

    Excellent service from the main door through to the lounge bar for our afternoon tea. Our waitress was charming and very helpful. There was an endless supply of hot drinks and the food, in the main, absolutely delicious. There were a couple of minor issues. The bread on some of the sandwiches was a little dry and the cream in some of the chocolate eclairs tasted and smelt of fish. This was rectified immediately.

    The reason for our visit was to celebrate a friend's birthday. We had been to the Royal Opera House to watch The Nutcracker ballet and our afternoon tea at The Strand Palace was literally the icing on the cake!!

    excellent staff more than helpful. We did think the scones were not up to standard a little doughy but everything else excellent

    The Lounge bar was a very relaxed setting with attentive and courteous staff to cater for our individual wishes. The afternoon tea was delicious and very plentiful!

    My granddaughter decided to pick a meal from the menu rather that afternoon tea. So pleased that she did. My afternoon tea was disappointing, sandwiches were very tiny, my scones were too hard and I only had one as they were so dry. Only thing I enjoyed was the actual tea! Think I will try somewhere else next time. Staff were very pleasant. Nice atmosphere.

    Great afternoon tea at an affordable price. We appreciated that we could turn up in more casual dress as we had been traveling part of the day. It's a lovely selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones that won't break the bank. Highly recommend!
