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!

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.

    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.

    Wonderfull meal & service at The Savoy. However as a Gilbert & Sullivan enthusiast it really saddens me that there is no reference to them or their music throughout the whole hotel

    We had a fabulous experience at the Savoy. I booked a surprise afternoon tea for my husband's birthday. The staff and service were excellent, extremely friendly and attentive. The food was plentiful and wonderful. The hotel is stunning and hopefully we will return one day.

    Lovely dining area with nice friendly approachable server.Piano player was great.We thought the actual food could have been better the last cake course disappointing.

    I paid for this as a Christmas present for my mum and sister and we came for afternoon tea. The hotel was lovely & the staff were very attentive. There was a good choice of sandwiches and they were delicious. The scones and the majority of the cakes were very nice too. Our only criticism was on the third course that the Victoria sponge we were offered was not quite what we were expecting and we all left it. We thought it was going to be light and soft but what we were offered was a harder denser consistency. But to be honest we were all pretty full anyway.

    Good morning, may I just start by saying how much we enjoyed our afternoon tea. The service was exceptional and both waiters were both professional and kind. I have spoken to quite a few people since my return and told them all that I would have paid the same again as in my opinion it was worth it. May I just say I will be coming back again in the future and thank you so very much.
