Number Sixteen is a hidden gem in the city. Absolutely a perfect afternoon tea in the garden.
07 June 2017
Afternoon Tea at Number Sixteen hotel is an elegant and luxurious affair. With the option to take tea in any of the public spaces, from the library to the tree-filled hotel garden, there is a setting for every weather and occasion.
The Number Sixteen menu covers classic afternoon tea with the usual sandwiches and scones on offer, as well as some lesser-seen creations, such as arancini, accompanied by sweet options such as Bakewell tart. A lighter option on offer is the ‘fruit tea’, which consists of 5 plates of colourful treats themed around blueberries, orange, lime zest and honey. A gluten-free tea is available on request.
The stunning landscaped garden offers a blissful escape from the bustle of London, whilst the colourful drawing room full of modern, decorative art and bright pink fabrics, is a funky, laidback setting. The cosy library and light-flooded conservatory are also open for afternoon tea at Number 16 in London.
Number Sixteen is situated in the heart of South Kensington, with the museums on its doorstep, and South Kensington Tube Station just a 2-minute walk away.

Beautiful indoor and outdoor areas. Highly recommended for a nice lazy afternoon!

Lovely location. It was a sunny day so sat outside and felt I was in the country and not in the centre of London.
Pretty courtyard, lovely tea and good service and very reasonable for a tea anywhere especially in London.

The atmosphere, the setting, the tea, the food: it was all superb!!! We loved every minute of it. A nice little getaway from the real world.
((*** 23 June 2017 by Amber M from London
Overall, it was a fine experience. We arrived a couple minutes before our reservation time and were told to "wait a couple minutes for them to set up our table. 22 minutes later, I asked again and was met by a seemingly annoyed restaurant manager saying someone was at our table and even though there's a two hour limit, said he "couldn't ask them to leave". It was an uncomfortable experience and especially since we were celebrating a special event, it not only didn't feel special but it felt like we were an inconvenience to them. Once we were finally seated, the desserts weren't memorable, they forgot to bring tea (for Afternoon Tea...really??), but the scones were delicious and the setting was lovely. I can't decide if I will be coming back as my experience overall was disappointing... but the garden and hope that perhaps this was a one-off service fault might draw me back, but definitely not for some time.

Delightful and cool courtyard even when termperatures are sizzling in the sunshine. Excellent scones but perhaps due to the heat the sandwiches were a little dry. A hint: the cakes are better at the sister Haymarket Hotel.

Lovely place, the outdoor sitting area is breathtaking.

Afternoon tea - the quality of the food was good but not exceptional. What's really lovely is the service and the beautiful dining room and garden.
