Great service and food. Shall be back and shall recommend. Price is high for tea and should therefore include service.

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. Please note, all guests are respectfully asked to observe The Dorchester’s ‘smart casual’ dress code, by refraining from wearing baseball or beanie caps, ripped jeans, sportswear (including flip-flops) and shorts while visiting the restaurants and bars.

    Absolutely wonderful experience never to be forgotten. Loved it. Service and food excellent.

    Very friendly and respectful staff, a nice selection of savoury sandwiches and also sweets. The scones were not as impressive, but I don't remember this about them the last time I had afternoon tea, about five years ago, so perhaps it was a one-off. And I appreciated that they provided my mother with a fruit dish vs the desserts, and did not charge extra.

    The attention to detail was first class along with the service. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. I've been to other, more well known places for afternoon tea, but I'd highly recommend the Dorchester.

    As soon as I walked into the Dorchester it was breathtaking. I will never forget the scent of the fresh flowers. The staff were very polite and friendly. My daughter has an allergy to nuts and all care was taken by staff to provide her with food without nuts which we really appreciate. The service was outstanding, making sure our teacups were topped up. The pastries and sandwiches were melt in the mouth. An amazing experience and will definitely recommend to friends and family.

    Great atomosphere and staff were very friendly and welcoming. Maby because of busy hour, I found service was very slow as we had to wait 25 minutes before tea is served. Egg and vegetable sandwich was delicious. Chiken sandwich was very dry and cucumber was little bit soggy tasteless.
