In the 5-star Corinthia Hotel, The Lobby Lounge offers exquisite British delicacies. Tranquil outdoor dining is offered in the perfectly preened private courtyard, while the striking dining room features a glittering Baccarat Chandelier and hot pink foliage.

Famed for its afternoon tea, The Lobby Lounge London offers unrivalled luxury. Alongside finger sandwiches and decadent Damian Allsop chocolates, a range of perfected classic British cakes includes Battenberg, Victoria sandwich and Eccles cakes. Perfect accompaniments include fine rare teas selected from the aptly-named tea palace, or Laurent-Perrier champagnes.

An accomplished all day dining menu showcases British produce at its finest, with simple soups, salads and sandwiches finished with typical Lobby Lounge finesse. For breakfast at The Lobby Charing Cross, premium offerings include organic omelettes, bacon sandwiches and Loch Var smoked salmon.

A member of the revered Tea Guild, The Lobby Lounge restaurant offers intricate and indulgent dining. Embankment Tube Station is just a minute’s walk away.

    Very nice place to have afternoon tea.
    Food was amazing, sevice was very good. The only thing that let it down was that it was very cold in the lobby. It made it very uncomfortable and took the pleasure out of the experience.

    We had the Laurent Perrier Rose afternoon tea.....delicious! Such beautiful surroundings, stunning floral displays and decor make a wonderful ambience. We were there for a treat for our anniversary, we were looked after very well and enjoyed the whole experience. The choice of delicate sandwiches, cakes and patisseries were superb. We actually had to take quite a few of the cakes home to enjoy later.

    Booked for afternoon tea with champagne as was my daughters birthday. Hotel made a birthday cake especially for her which was such a nice gesture. The tea and cakes were wonderful and absolutely delicious, cannot fault the experience as staff so courteous and it was a very relaxing experience, would definitely recommend it as beautiful setting in tea room and we were made to feel very welcome by all.

    I took my wife here for afternoon tea (my 1st but she's been to other places).
    She gave it the thumbs up and I thought it was a great experience.
    They contacted me the day before which was handy since I had to change the time from 1.30 to 4pm=no problem.
    Escorted to our seats as soon as we got in=no waiting.
    Service was attentive.
    Tea good
    Sandwiches good.
    Scones were warm/good.
    Pastries really good! ( I'm not a dessert fan).
    I would recommend

    Top class as per usual.
    Surprising that more people don't go here. It is far better than the Ritz, Claridge or Langham. Having been to all previously. Ritz is a waste of money unless you want to have snobby waiters. The staff at corinthia are very friendly and helpful and desserta are delicious. The decor for easter was gorgeous.
