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.

    I took my 3rd granddaughter to the Savoy ,and she loved it as much as the first two did! The service is perfect, the food delicious, the ambience sublime. I guess you realize that I absolutely love the Savoy! I have one younger granddaughter, and I will be taking her also in 2 years.

    Lovely experience and cakes and sandwiches were divine
    Did not like fact that staff kept topping up the same tea
    Wanted more experience of trying new teas

  • ((((( 24 May 2017 by Catherine from Bedford

    Very welcoming ambience, friendly and attentive staff and we loved the flowers and the piano playing. We enjoyed the tea very much. particularly the tasty range of sandwiches.and the scones were delicious. It was good to be offered 'seconds' though we did not need any more to eat! I was pleased to have the option of the asparagus with poached egg as I'm not much into sweet things. Thanks to the staff who looked after us so well.

  • ((((* 16 May 2017 by Judith Brown from Weybridge

    It was an all round good experience with excellent service and very pleasant food. No wow factor but thats afternoon tea. Only thing that spoilt it a bit was that the piano was rather too loud to hold a conversation easily.

  • ((((* 5 May 2017 by Kevin Allingham from Lytham St. Annes

    We were delighted with the range and quality of all the food and the attentive service of the waitress was second to none. However, the whole experience was somewhat spoiled by being seated at a table where members of staff and customers were repeatedly walking past on both sides of the table in close proximity to us..
