the first floor of the super-exclusive shopping centre One New Change, Searcys 1847 is a unique and stylish destination in the heart of the City. A glamorous centre-piece bar serves one of the most accomplished champagne lists in London, whilst speciality meatballs head up the menu.

The Searcys menu begins with a selection of Italian cheese and charcuterie boards, as well as irresistible sliders with brioche buns. The unique meatball selection is served with fresh pasta or gnocchi, and topped with hearty tomato sauce or pesto.

From the well-known and loved to rare and exclusive bottles, Searcys St Paul’s is famous for its stunning champagnes. Experimental signature cocktails are also consistently popular.

Designed by the Pulitzer Prize-winning architect, Jean Nouvel, the spectacular glass structure playing host to Searcys 1847 London offers breathtaking views onto St Paul’s Cathedral. St Paul’s Tube Station is 2 minutes’ walk away.

    This was a very poor example of afternoon tea! There were just 3 little triangles of sandwiches each - smoked salmon, chicken and bacon, and cheese and tomato. I mean, cheese and tomato, can there possibly be a cheaper sandwich? The scones were ok certainly nothing special and not even warm, with a very tiny amount of jam and cream that must have been left in the fridge for hours because it was too hard to spread. There were a further 3 tiny 'cakes' on the top tier - I use the term cakes loosely as they were about the size of a sweet. The ultimate cheek was the addition of a small dish of popcorn! Then about 10 minutes after we had finished our food, they decided to offer us tea or coffee. I had not mentioned it to them earlier as I thought that perhaps it was not included in the Bellini deal that we had. However, it was included and the staff knew this so should have ensured that we were offered the hot drinks a lot earlier! I don't mind paying good money for a quality afternoon tea which I enjoy and which does not leave me hungry. Unfortunately this did not match up to my expectations of a good afternoon tea. I have had much better afternoon teas locally and also in chains. Overall we were extremely disappointed and certainly will not be returning, nor will we recommend to others.

    Nice Bar. Nice Bellini. Afternoon tea was ok. Could have been more content.

    Afternoon tea was very nice

    The service was lovely with the waiter friendly and professional however, there wasn't a large selection of food to choose from. 4 salads and customisable meatball dishes. The salads were crisp and fresh but the beef meatballs were very dry and the pasta was rubbery. The chocolate fondant dessert I had was divine.

    SO, a mixed review, I'd go there for drinks (and dessert) with the ladies again (and for a special occasion only as everything was very expensive on the menu) but not for lunch.

    Fresh and tasty food at a reasonable price. Good atmosphere.

    I had thought I was booking to eat at Searcy's at The Gherkin (AT THE GHERKIN) and stupidly hadn't realised that my location was One New Change in a shopping centre by St Paul's Cathedral! That was the first major disappointment. The second disappointment was the choice of food on the menu and the fact that they 'didn't really do desserts but something could be made up from the afternoon tea menu'. However, what we had was tasty. The glass of champagne was nice as was our additional glass of Gavi. Extensive champagne and wine list as one would expect. Food and service was very good. Not bothered about going back to have a glass of something in a shopping centre.

    Dissapointing
    This was a Christmas gift and an afternoon tea we were looking forward to. We found the venue a bit like an airport bar and not the right setting for afternoon tea. You are given 3 quarters of a sandwich, which were made hours before hand and were dry, a scone with jam and cream and 4 tiny sweets. The Bellini and tea were nice. It all just felt wrong and somewhere you might just pop in if you were passing and not for a special treat. Left feeling disappointed having spent over an hour to get there and again over an hour to get home. More London venues would be good.
