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.

    Really liked the scones and the selection of cakes and the service we received. However, was extremely disappointed that I ordered a vegetarian afternoon tea and discovered beef on 2 of the sandwiches. It really did ruin the experience, especially as there was 7 of us and we spent £237. The 3 vegatarians ended up leaving half of their food.
    This is the second time I have come this year but am very reluctant to come again. Would only recommend to non vegatarians.

    The content of the afternoon tea was very nice. It was all very tasty. Although, I would directly remove the raisins from the scones!
    Unfortunately a company on the table next to us was very loud. It didn't give the nice atmostphere we were after. The lounge room seemed to need a little update. Probably ok for a beer before going out, but not for an afternoon tea location.

    Afternoon tea at the Strand Palace Hotel was delicious. Plenty of tea and cakes and added a glass of Prosecco. Very good value for money. The tea was served in a little nook inside the Lounge Bar, so quieter and more private. Plenty to eat - had to leave a scone as too full!

    It was amazing! From the gentleman who met us at the door and showed us the way, via the wheelchair entrance, to the lovely staff in the Lounge Bar and the fantastic Afternoon Tea, it was all wonderful. A lovely surprise to have the dessert with the lit candle in brought out and Happy Birthday sang too. The whole experience made my Mother's 80th Birthday so special.

    My daughter and I went for afternoon tea at the Strand Palace before going to see Lion King, all for her 21st birthday. I said in the comment on the booking that I would like it to be special for her but when we went to the bar I felt they weren't expecting us, they looked at the computer and then said wait a moment while they laid the table. We didn't rush and felt a bit uncomfortable when the waitress started putting tealights on the other tables and turned the lighting down. The food was ok but not really worth almost £50, we could have gone to many other places and had a better experience for half the price. Overall I didn't feel it had the wow factor that I had anticipated from a big hotel on the Strand.

    I went here for afternoon tea with a gin cocktail with two friends and we all really enjoyed it. The food was very good, especially the warm scones and the staff were very attentive. The free tea infused cocktails was a very generous size as well.
