Synonymous with luxury and grandeur, The Dorchester hotel on Park Lane presents elegant British brasserie cuisine at The Promenade. The dining room features lavish interior design from Thierry Despont, and an oval leather-clad bar.

A polished, tranquil retreat in which to enjoy the hotel’s legendary afternoon teas, The Promenade in London showcases 25 different tea blends, alongside its impeccable range of sweet and savoury treats. As well as cakes from the in-house bakery, enjoy the signature Dorchester scones- made to a recipe unchanged for 50 years.

An all-day menu at The Promenade is filled with refined Dorchester classics, as well as extravagantly-topped pizzas, and delicious meats from the grill. For an indulgent start to the day, The Promenade in Mayfair also offers an exciting international range for breakfast.

Set on one of London’s most famous streets, The Promenade on Park Lane is just 6 minutes’ walk from Hyde Park Corner Tube Station.

    Our afternoon tea @ the Dorchester was fabulous, from the moment of entering into the foyer/reception, we were greeted & escorted through to the promanade area, to be greeted by wonderful staff who assisted with our booking, then taken to the seating area. The ambience, decor, beautiful flower arrangements & the friendly staff made this experience pretty special. Our tea was served to perfection the waitress attending was very friendly/polite & so very helpful, we were also asked about theservice we were recieving by i presume the maitre d, who advised us if there was anything we needed assistance with, just to let them know. The female pianist was a delight from the claasical selection she played upto the modern day music such as like Adele & others. The whole experience was beautifully presented & made to feel very welcome, would visit again. Thank you Dorchester Hotel for our delightful afternoon experience. Also to the lovely staff from reception to the promanade room. Thank you.

    The Dorchester afternoon tea is an experience that everyone should try. The food was great but the service was remarkable. The staff was exceptional in knowledge of the teas; friendly and attentive in service. Francesco was a delight. Start with the Dorchester signature tea which was delicious, I also recommend the African Autumn. Savor the tea and the atmosphere in the Promenade you won't be disappointed.

    We arrived 15 minutes early. We were made to feel welcome and our table was ready so seated immediately.
    Our waiter we very attentive pleasant and polite. He appeared to want us to have a great experience and gave us information about our menu and the experience. We struggled to eat our all cakes and he kindly put them in cake box to take away. He presented my daughter a birthday cake - I was impressed with this as we had not informed you of her birthday on booking.
    There was a gentleman seating behind me who had a security guard. He spent a lot of time standing up directly behind me surveying the room. We found this rather unnerving and intimidating. Otherwise the atmosphere was relaxed, luxurious and grand. The toilets were clean and grand.

    My niece and I had afternoon tea here for the first time yesterday and the whole experience was absolutely delightful. The service was impeccable and the food very tasty and lovely and fresh. The waitress also spotted my niece's Duke of Edinburgh Award pin she was wearing and asked if we had been to collect her Gold certificate that morning from the palace, which we had. At the end of the afternoon, they presented her with a special piece of cake with a candle and "Congratulations" written on it. It truly was the icing on a wonderful and unforgettable day. I would highly recommend the Dorchester afternoon tea without hesitation. The service was lovely and personal but unobtrusive. We couldn't have asked for more!
