Had a fabulous afternoon tea here. A themed tea with freshly cooked scones - a particularly nice touch.

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.

With verdant views from the 1st floor, The Royal Lancaster Hotel is just a 1-minute walk from Lancaster Gate Tube Station.

    We went for afternoon tea on a Saturday. The service was great. The waiter explained the food and how it worked. The sandwiches were delicious as were the freshly made scones.
    The cakes and sweets were too sweet though which was a shame as they looked lovely.

    What a treat! One of the best afternoon teas I have had in a long while. The food was immaculately presented, they catered for every fussy whim we had and the staff were very friendly and professional. The Wimbledon theme is inspired and the tennis ball shaped lemon tart was to die for!

    The afternoon tea here is amazing with a peaceful view of Hyde Park. The theme of afternoon tea I enjoyed here is Flower Art, which is reflected in the flavour and artistic presentation of servings. The paint box and jam in paint tubes look so cute with the food. I enjoyed every bite in this afternoon tea and this is very rare in my case. I haven't imagined that I would love cucumber sandwiches as much. The day I came was quiet and still the food were freshly prepared. This place is recommended for people who want a quiet and relaxing afternoon away from the crowd. I will look forward to come again in future.

    The afternoon tea was for my son and his wife on their honeymoon. Their feedback was that they thoroughly enjoyed it and felt incredibly spoilt. They could not fault a thing.

    I love the staffs there, the service was absolutely brill:))
    And the truffle pastry (?) one was amazing, I like the fact that we could ask for more of what we liked!!

    It took the service more than 10 minutes before they even noticed we were there and a other 10 minutes before we got our bubbels. The presentation was not in a painters box as the promotion was but traditional. The fingerfood and pastries were oke but not remarkable. The tea menu standard. The tea refill took its time and the wrong pot with the wrong tea was served. I would not recommend this afternoon tea as there is so mutch more quality for the same price in London.

    Went for the mothers' day tea. Place was understaffed and the scones took forever to come out. (We were told eight minutes but it took more like 25). Food itself was average - sandwiches and scones quite good, but the patisserie were not great. Also far too much chocolate going on.
    We went for the quirky presentation advertised - but we just got a standard tea stand, so not pleased.

    Terrible service, after being seated we waited for 20mins before anyone came to take our order and that is only because we called a manager to get someone's attention. Food not flavourful, poor quality, bad flavour combinations, tacky design. Not as in photos. Tea was obviously old as had no scent or clear flavour.
