The Afternoon Tea at Royal Lancaster Hotel offers classic British treats in Paddington. With irresistible food and a sophisticated setting, guests are treated to tea, sandwiches and scones, followed by sweet bites from the pastry chef.

The Royal Lancaster afternoon tea menu features smoked salmon sandwiches, coronation chicken tartlets and egg and wild cress choux buns. Guests are also offered plum and raisin scones with homemade strawberry jam and clotted cream, topped off by sweet pastries and cakes including pistachio macaron and apple and honey cupcake. This is of course all accompanied by a choice of fine teas.

Guests can also retire to the well-stocked lounge bar serving a broad choice of wines and light snacks. Plush plum seating and dark woods continue the theme of subtle sophistication that is on display throughout the hotel.

Royal Lancaster Afternoon Tea is served in the Park Lounge on the first floor, and is just a 1-minute walk from Lancaster Gate Tube Station.

    The sandwiches and the beginning of the experience was the best. Very got service until or plates from the sandwiches was taken. We waited for a very long time to be served the scones and felt forgotten because the waitress walked by us a couple of times just looking the other way. The dessert was too intense and massive. No information about extra fees which was chocking when we received the bill.

    A beautiful setting we found the choice of sandwiches a little disappointing as they were not what we expected following our website booking to be honest we would not have chosen this location had we known it was going to be a different menu

    Excellent food and service from Abduhl and a trainee. Really obnoxious other customer who was rude load and demanding with your staff. Shame the customer had no manners at all. Didn't spoil our second visit to your beautiful hotel

    Decided to have afternoon tea while staying at the Royal Lancaster Hotel. Everything was wonderful and I will definitely do it again!

    A very memorable afternoon experience. Never been offered more sandwiches or had freshly baked scones - still hot - in all the teas I've had, so very impressed. Loved the variety of sandwiches and breads. Couldn't eat all the cakes so would have preferred to have seen less cakes and more savoury. Maybe be offered another glass of champagne instead Waiting staff very attentive and couldn't have been more polite. The room was bright and tastely decorated.

    The outside of the hotel, I do not find very attractive. Despite the ongoing works outside the hotel and the slightly 'empty, souless' foyer, once we got into the bar area things improved greatly!! The original table we were seated at was very low and not really conducive to eating. The lovely Asia soon moved us to a much better table in the corner, better suited to eating and drinking tea. Her expert efficiency and demeanour made the whole experience one to remember. She explained the menu and the teas fully. When the sandwiches came they were so fresh and delicious and very different. The pastries were perfect, light, bursting with taste and more than enough. The scones were perfectly sized, feather light and served with lovely strawberry jam and clotted cream. Asia ensured that we never ran out of tea - offering to serve a different variety after the first 2 pots each - assured us there were more sandwiches available if we needed them - we didn't!! I had a glass of pink fizz to celebrate what was a very special afternoon tea. The Royal Lancaster must have a very talented Pastry Chef leading his team.
