Located just minutes away from some of the best museums in in London, The Drawing Rooms is a cosy escape from the bustle of the city. Serving afternoon tea & all-day bites, this sun-lit venue is the heart of the luxurious Ampersand Hotel.

As well as all-day light bites, The Drawing Rooms afternoon tea menu includes coronation chicken & cheese tartine with fruit chutney, homemade scones with fruity jam and clotted cream, and a selection of pastries, such as the classic Victoria sponge & tangy lemon meringue tart.

With large Victorian windows allowing the place to bathe in light, The Drawing Rooms offer a quintessentially English environment to enjoy a selection of teas and rich coffees. Decked out with banquettes, deep sofas & studded armchairs in red velvet & kingfisher blues, it also provides a delicious vegetarian menu.

The Drawing Rooms in South Kensington is a 4-minute walk from the Natural History Museum, a 3-minute walk from the V&A Museum, and a 6-minute walk from the Science Museum. South Kensington Tube Station is just a minute’s walk away.

    We had the Science Afternoon Tea for my baby shower with 6 of my oldest friends. We completely loved it, it was so well thought out and interesting. Plenty of both savoury and sweet treats and a wild selection of different loose leaf teas. Everyone of the part had an amazing afternoon. The location and the setting in The Drawing Room was amazing and the staff were very attentive, friendly and knowledgable. Loved it. Just want to take my husband back next time.

    The science tea is a novel idea combining dinosaurs and fossils with dry-ice. The food was decent if rather heavy. The room was nicely decorated by too small, drafty and the layout more of an afterthought. Service was good. Go there if you have kids and want a 'different' experience. Don't go for a classy or traditional high tea experience.

    Absolutely loved my visit here! We went for the Science Afternoon tea which was Halloween themed as it was around that time. The room is stunning, light and airy and it was also relatively quiet so it was lovely to just sit and enjoy some nice bites. The scones were my favourite, both were delicious as was the cream and jam. The macroon was also lovely. Service was great and overall just a really love afternoon.

    Restaurant lovely, clean and fresh. Service god, the waitrons explaining all the little details of the cake tray. Cake tray very good, nice a variety of sweet and savory. The scones were especially delicious, freshly baked with clotted cream. The little extras for Halloween were a nice touch and tasty too! Price good in comparasion to other venues.
