Found within one of London’s most famous 5-star hotels, The Thames Foyer at The Savoy offers its acclaimed afternoon tea. A domed glass ceiling floods this space with natural light, and a live pianist offers a calming musical accompaniment.

A long-time member of the benchmark-setting Tea Guild, The Savoy’s afternoon tea is meticulously crafted in-house by resident Pastry Chef, Ludwig Hely. Enjoy a stand of finger sandwiches and homemade scones served with clotted cream, and strawberry jam made to a treasured Savoy recipe. To follow, a range of delicious seasonal-themed cakes and pastries are served tableside from a silver platter.

Rare teas sourced from China, India, Sri Lanka and Iran are served in the finest polished silverware and delicate china tea ware, while flutes of chilled champagne can be selected for an extra-indulgent afternoon tea in London. Guests can also visit the on-site patisserie, where a menagerie of sweet treats are served alongside chocolates crafted by in-house chocolatiers.

One of the capital’s most celebrated afternoon tea experiences, The Savoy on the Strand sits 5 minutes’ walk from Charing Cross station.

    at the beginning, we got attention and service, but very soon we were left alone by ourselves.
    we had lack of tea, even if it was an afternoon tea

    Booked afternoon tea here with two friends. Really lovely venue, good food, including for the vegetarian in the party and a very relaxed atmosphere. Just a shame we didn't have enough room for all the pastries and cakes!

    Beautiful setting, loved the giant bird cage in the middle of the foyer. The sandwiches were delicious, and I loved the variety of pastries. Not a huge fan of the scones, as they were very cakey and stodgy, not short at all. But the cream and preserves were great! Service was attentive and friendly, really enjoyed the fact that the food was unlimited! Left feeling delightfully stuffed.
