Overlooking the Royal Mews of Buckingham Palace, The Palace Lounge is a tranquil retreat within The Rubens hotel. Afternoon tea at The Palace Lounge pays respect to tradition whilst incorporating fresh twists.

Befitting its location, the Royal Afternoon Tea features mouth-watering pastries influenced by royal events. Savour jam pennies, red velvet cupcakes influenced by the House of Stuart or the chocolate biscuit cake, a favourite of Prince William and Prince Harry.

The traditional menu is also adapted for younger diners, in the form of the Little Prince and Princess Tea. Young diners can enjoy bit-size sandwiches, fresh scones and pastries, and a choice of milkshake, hot chocolate, tea or soft drink.

Able to accommodate any special dietary requirement, afternoon tea at The Palace Lounge London is a quintessentially British affair. Victoria Rail Station is a short walk away.

    Booking was easy, service very god BUT the food was average and unimpressive- cold scones which were also dry and no where near enough cream or jam.
    Jam on rounds of dry white bread is hardly a festive tea!
    Mulled wine nice and plentiful but you had to ask
    We won't go there again

    Afternoon tea at The Palace Lounge was a very pleasant experience. The food was exciting and tasty, and was very well presented. The tea was nice and abundant, although we would have preferred a little bit more flavour. The people who met us and took care of us during the meal were both professional and kind, which was very much appreciated. As far as the music is concerned, we found the choice of music very good, the piano playing clever and nice, but the singer's voice was not quite up to the standard one would expect in this kind of restaurant. But all in all a very nice experience. And no worries if you are not Royal or a celebrity - we are ordinarily people and were met in a most polite and friendly manner. Highly recommendable - I will go back if I have the opportunity.
