Inside a breathtaking 5-star hotel overlooking the River Thames, The Lounge at the Royal Horseguards is a unique setting to indulge in a luxurious take on the quintessential British tradition of afternoon tea, with an al fresco terrace also on offer for when the weather allows.

Every aspect of the Lounge at the Royal Horseguards afternoon tea menu has been carefully crafted to offer the finest example of traditional British luxury. For starters, there is a unique signature loose leaf tea of strawberries and cream which perfectly complements the moist scones with indulgent clotted cream and jams. Beautifully presented finger sandwiches come with classic fillings such as smoked salmon, cream cheese, and cucumber, and there are also other contemporary savoury bites too.

Inventive sweet surprises are also served at The Lounge at the Royal Horseguards Westminster, such as marmalade jammy dodger, gooseberry inside-out Victoria sponge, and Pimms almondine. As well as the signature tea, there are other exotic blends like organic Monteviot Darjeeling, Oolong Fleur D'Orient, and Persian Pomegranate. Diners can also choose to add glasses of premium champagnes to their meals.

Housed in one of London's most iconic areas, and with wonderfully elegant touches throughout, The Lounge at the Royal Horseguards London sits 3 minutes' walk from Embankment Tube Station.

    It was already my fourth time I visited the Royal Horseguards Hotel in London for an afternoon tea. The first thing I said to my friend was 'It feels good to be home again.'. The hotel's lounge is so cosy, stylish and luxurious. The sandwiches were very tasteful, the scones absolutely delicious and the sweets delightful! We drank the Persian Pommegranate Tea, which is exquisite!
    But the best thing of all about this amazing afternoon tea, is the crew. I've never seen a crew who is so friendly, so kind, so helpful and sweet!

    See you next time!

    A new experience for us but great fun and wonderful tea. Choice of leaf tea and then many different sandwiches, baby scones with jam and clotted cream, then many different baby cakes. Friendly and efficient service, we spent nearly two hours over the tea and never felt hurried. Highly recommended as a special treat.

    We had a really nice afternoon at the Lounge.

    They catered to my dietary requirements without any problems which I really appreciated (gluten free, dairy free and pregnant!)
