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

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.

    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.

    Beautiful presentation and friendly staff for tea. Food, especially the savory bits, was quite good! Great option for tea in London!

    The food was beautifully presented, delicious and the theme was consistent and even included in the cutlery. The service was fantastic. We had such a welcoming greeting at the door with everyone so willing to assist and our waiter was incredibly helpful and friendly.

    Wow what a treat this was from start to finish. The quality of the tea was first class and far better then I have had in other more famous establishments while the service was top class as nothing was too much trouble. The staff (the main waitress was I think Asia) really treated our two grandchildren (10 and 12 year old girls) as if they were royalty which made the experience for them even more special. When you consider that the childrens tea was £15 per head it was just stunning.
    The surroundings are very swish as well so I would recommend to anyone and thank you for making such a special end to our London trip.
