Restaurant description

With plush sofas, a cosy fireplace, and views out onto the tranquil secret garden, Afternoon Tea at The Library is an indulgent treat for those looking for a quintessentially British dining experience.

The afternoon tea menu at The Library offers both celebrated tradition, and inventive contemporary touches. The classic afternoon tea includes finger sandwiches filled with gourmet classic flavours like salmon and cream cheese, while the sweet treats range from warm scones with jam and Devonshire cream, through to artisan cakes and pastries.

For those looking for something a little different, there is a British Gentleman's Afternoon Tea, which includes Pan-Asian dishes like tempura prawns with samphire and wasabi aioli. Diners can add glasses of premium bubbles from the bar, as well as a range of cocktails, including the Golden Martini, made with vodka, hazelnut frangelico and caçao.

An elegant example of fine British dining with modern international tweaks, the Crowne Plaza London Kensington is a short walk from the Natural History and Science Museums, and just a few moments from Gloucester Road Tube Station.
