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.

    Afternoon tea was delicious. Service was appallingly slow.

    I took my wife for an early Birthday weekend to the city and booked afternoon tea at the Strand, this is the sixth time we have been for afternoon tea, as always it was an excellent meal. The service was as expected excellent. My wife is quite a fussy eater when it comes to fillings in sandwiches so we use the Strand because they will always modify the filling to suit my wife so this makes it ideal and excellent customer service.

    We had Covent garden afternoon tea, this was excellent in content and service, no complaints or constructive comments.

    Fabulous - made my daughter's birthday that bit special. I did take a candle and asked if it could be put on one of the mini cakes but they put it on a special chocolate one just for her, she was delighted! Service was good and staff were friendly and made us very welcome. We would definately like to make a return visit next time we are in London.

    we had booked in advance, unfortunately the table that was reserved for us was in a corner (not the nice booth that you've got) so we asked for another table. we think that the atmosphere in the lounge isn't suitable for the afternoon tea. it was very busy with other people and very loud (bar) so you couldn't relax.

    My boyfriend and I had afternoon tea. It was superb. We were traveling overseas for the first time and I wanted to have that afternoon tea experience. Since we were limited to our clothing I was relieved to find a place without a strict dress code. The staff was friendly and very pleasant. The food was delicious as were the treats. Everything was so filling and just the right amount. Pricing was very affordable as well. It was all so perfect and I'm so glad I chose the strand for my first official afternoon tea experience.

    Had afternoon tea in the lounge bar. Very nice setting and food was lovely. Service could have been a little better.
