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.

    The number sixteen was really accommodating to my sister and I. We were late to our afternoon tea booking, but they let us in anyway. There was a lot more food than other afternoon tea places. The food was really delicious, and we were really full. The service was amazing.

    Nice place for afternoon tea in Kensington. Cozy garden (only in summer), nice interior room for dining or tea.
    Food overall ok,but a little bit more creativity would have been good, quite simple sandwiches and scones a bit to dry.
    Value for money is ok (as far as London is concerned, but compared to Afternoon Tea places all over the UK we were a bit disappointed.

    We had a lovely afternoon tea , the food was very good and varied, could not fault the service and really enjoyed the setting in the conservatory
    We had drinks in the lounge before we had tea and very much enjoyed looking at the decor

    This was our first Afternoon Tea and it was very pleasant. The waiter was very polite and explained everything to us. There was even a free glass of sparling wine for each of us. The restaurant is part of a nice hotel with unique decorations. The food was plenty and tasted fresh and good.The only drawback was, that the waiter asked, if he can bring us some water while we look at the menue. We agreed on still water. He didn't tell us that we can have free tapwater, so he brought Evian, which added 6,- to our bill. The afternoon tea was 44,- for two, but the bill added up to over 55,- with the water, including the service charge that's added automatically
