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 restaurant,wonderful food,excellent service. Cannot praise the Savoy Thames Foyer enough . The pianist at the grand piano underneath the glorious domed glass ceiling was the icing on the cake, and the coronation chicken sandwiches,superb.

    Fantastic afternoon tea with my mother for both of our birthdays (I was born on the same day as her)! Service was great - Caterina (apologies if spelt incorrectly) was very attentive. We were very surprised with our special petit and beautiful birthday cakes, which were brought to our table with the pianist playing Happy Birthday - smiles all around! Pianist was also fantastic and definitely created the perfect atmosphere. On behalf of my mother and myself we would highly recommend your afternoon tea to our friends. Many thanks for the great service Savoy!

    It was a lovely afternoon tea experience. The ambience in the Savoy was so lovely, the food, the piano being played. A very enjoyable and memorable experience.
