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.

    Lovely experience for afternoon tea in the city. Very convenient location next to many top sites to visit. Staff was gracious and the lounge was comfortable.

    Really enjoyed our Champagne High Tea experience at the Royal Horseguards. Wonderful setting in the Lounge, with colorful decor and tea settings. Very hospitable and friendly staff who were attentive throughout the 2 and a half hour experience. Ample food for a tea and you were encouraged to ask for more of the scones, sandwiches and desserts that were served. Appreciated the top up of the delicious champagne. Would definitely return the next time we are back in London.

    The Afternoon tea at the Royal Horseguards Lounge was outstanding. The food was excellent, very well presented and very tasty.
    The hotel Lounge is beautifully and tastefully decorated and the staff were very attentive, friendly and polite.

    Location is fantastic and suited us perfectly for the day, although a slightly better location within the lounge would have been nicer as the area we sat was a little dark. Gluten-free options were fantastic, although slightly surprised that there were no macaron as these are usually naturally gluten-free.

    Treated my friend to a birthday tea and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

    Booked for the Champagne afternoon tea with 2 friends around 3:30 pm on a Saturday. Spoke to the waitress about the booking and showed her the email confirmation. The service is a bit slow but it was ok, foods are neatly presented. However I noticed some decoration on our cakes are missing comparing to the next table. The foods are above average then other afternoon tea around. Tea are good n plentiful. However when I asked for the bill they put extra £10 each totally £30 on the final bill. I have to go to the head waitress to show her the confirmed offer that stated £39 for champagne afternoon tea again to get my bill reduced. It have left a bad taste in my mouth that I have to showed her the confirmed email offer twiced. No doubt I won't be hurried back.

    i booked the 'right royal tea' at the Horseguards Lounge. However we were informed that it was not available as the pastries would be different. We had a glass of prosecco and a 3 tier cake stand of finger sandwiches, 2 scones an 5 petite pastries including a macaroon. We were asked which tea we would like from the menu and were given a silver pot each although I had to ask for the milk as the waitress forgot to give us one.
    Everything was very nice although the seafood mini roll was rather dry and the clotted cream pot had been standing out or a while. The scones were very small but tasted good.
    I feel that the price was high for what we had and the voucher didn't give any special price as it was he same as on the menu.
    The Horseguards Hotel is very nice and tranquil inside the seating is comfortable and well set out.
