Amid the splendour of the 5-star Sofitel London St James Hotel, The Rose Lounge shares the hotel’s blend of English tradition and classic French style. This Grade II listed former city bank provides the opulent backdrop for a rose-tinted Afternoon Tea experience in soothing surroundings.

Plump, plush sofas in warm pink denote The Rose Lounge’s unmistakable feminine style, while the French influence is apparent in the delicate tapestries lining the room. A fine range of teas pour from fine china pots, complementing delightful Parisienne pastries.

Tempting cakes and dainty cut sandwiches hallmark the suitably elegant Rose Lounge menu. Fresh fragrant roses and the subtle strains of a harp among its sensory signatures, The Rose Lounge in London offers an intimate atmosphere to enjoy this most civilised of British traditions.

Afternoon Tea at The Rose Lounge oozes the sophistication of one of the capital’s most prestigious addresses. A short stroll from Trafalgar Square and Bond Street, The Rose Lounge at Sofitel London St James is a 2-minute walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

    The location of the hotel is great, just within a walking distance from Piccadilly Circus. The Rose Lounge looks lovely with sofas and comfortable chairs, There is a harpist playing for the added ambiance. However, I have visited quite a few locations in London for an afternoon tea and this one left me feeling disappointed. The service was almost non existent: we were asked once if everything was alright and after that left to our own devices. Our teas were getting cold and only when one of us asked for hot water, a waiter came by. We had four sandwiches each, there were no extras. After scones we were allowed to choose a cake from a vitrine, one for each of us. Maybe I have been spoiled with the previous afternoon tea experiences but I have always gone home feeling happy and full. This time I went back home and had a proper supper.

    Perfect! Booked for a large group of us for afternoon tea. Stunning venue and felt very looked after by the service staff. The food selection was brilliant, especially the cakes. Lovely relaxed ambience and the harpist playing made it extra special.
    By far the best afternoon tea I have had in London.

    Excellent afternoon tea with a twist in a beautiful room. Warmly welcomed by the team there - who congratulated us on using afternoontea.com . We were offered endless top ups of tea and food and enjoyed the French patisseries which rounded off the very traditional sandwiches and scones! Couldn't fault anything!

    Perfect afternoon tea. The service is impeccable, friendly and discreet. The quality of the food and teas is just perfect.
    It would be great to have also brown bread sandwiches as a choice.

    We absolutely loved it! Great food, warm cosy atmosphere and excellent service. The (half price) children's tea, served in an artists paint box is a good option too! Would definitely recommend.

    The food here is lovely and so is the setting. The waitress was very polite and helpful changing my tea when Indidn't like the first choice. We were offered extra sandwiches too.
    Unfortunately as we were on the last sitting all the waiters/waitresses suddenly disappeared at 6 and we were left waiting for the pastries for about half an hour. Eventually a waiter turned up and we asked for them. We were told the staff leave at 6 and it changes the different staff. I would therefore suggest not starting your tea st 5 like we did but earlier.

    The lounge area is pleasant and comfortable. The service was good and the champagne was lovely and certainly free flowing, however the afternoon tea itself wasn't great , a bit of a sparse savoury selection ( just 3 small sandwich fingers each) the scones were a bit dry and hard , but the French pastries were nice ( 2 each) .
