The Tea Lounge at St Ermins is a timelessly chic setting for luxury afternoon teas. An eclectic range of teas is on offer including classic, children’s and gluten-free options.

The St Ermin’s afternoon tea includes a range of teas alongside sweet and savoury delicacies. Amongst the luxurious sandwiches are smoked salmon and caviar, salt beef and horseradish, and cucumber and cream cheese. Follow this with a choice of freshly baked scones including triple chocolate and gingerbread, all topped off by delectable treats such as chocolate tiffin, peanut butter macaron, and orange posset.

St Ermin’s hotel in London is a fittingly elegant and extravagant location for such indulgence. With ornately textured ceilings, plush seating and traditional wooden furnishings, the Tea Lounge exudes sophistication.

Entered through a tree-lined courtyard, St Ermin’s in Westminster is a 2-minute walk from St James’s Park Tube Station, and a tranquil hideaway a short walk from many major landmarks.

    The choice of sandwiches was great, the scone perfect and the staff were really sweet and friendly with the children. The children (3 girls) loved it and looking around beautiful hotel. Good value considering the service, surroundings and location.

    it was a lovely finish to a special event - we had a mix of dietary needs and the waitress was extremely helpful and patient. The sandwiches and cakes were delicious, lots of different tastes and textures. sadly too many to finish but we were able to take the remainder away with us - a posh doggy bag!

    Absolute exceptional service.
    Would have liked more/larger savory items as I found the themed pastries a bit too sweet.

    I was really happy with the afternoon tea experience at St Ermin's - great selection of sweet and savory snacks, interesting teas, super nice service and relaxing atmosphere. I was really impressed by the sweets selection as there were 7-8 different desserts, all very distinct in flavor.

    Afternoon tea at St. Ermin's is a delightful experience in a lovely ambiance! We chose it because it is child friendly and serves a special "Busy Bees" afternoon tea for small children. (There is also a Busy Bees adventure experience on the 3rd floor, which the children greatly enjoyed.) Our 4 and 2-year-olds absolutely loved it! Service is also very friendly and attentive. We were a party of 8( 6 adults as well as the 2 children) and the Winter Wonderland tea was excellent. I would criticise only one thing, that the sweet offerings far exceeded the savoury in quantity and that there were hardly any sandwiches. This did not detract from a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, though! Birthday celebrations are well catered for!

    The selection of flavours was excellent for a festive afternoon tea without being typical.

    An excellent way to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Highlights were the scones and the unlimited champagne although everything was delicious except for the mulled wine mousse(?) which we all agreed was a little non descript. We also thought that there could be a better balance between sweet and savoury.

    Lovely afternoon at St Ermins. Small intimate Tea Lounge. Service was excellent. Delicious savouries and sandwiches, delicate pastries and light scones. Kids Buzzy Bee Tea was good too. You can visit Bee Terrace and see the hives through the glass although we couldn't see much as cold, grey and wet afternoon. Will certainly return.
