The Library Lounge always offers a spectacular afternoon. The staff are truly outstanding and the food and free flowing bubbles always on point. With a fabulous atmosphere and gorgeous views I do not know how anyone could be less than delighted with afternoon tea here

Offering postcard-worthy views over Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Afternoon Tea at The Library Lounge is housed in the Marriott County Hall Hotel. In this landmark building, gorgeous library-style surroundings offer old world charm.

On The Library Lounge menu, freshly-cut finger sandwiches feature traditional fillings with a refined twist, with offerings like cucumber & mint, Surrey duck egg mayonnaise and succulent roast beef with horseradish. Irresistible arrangements of cakes and fancies include English rhubarb and white chocolate lollipop or Valrhona chocolate mousse, as well as sweet and savoury scones served with seasonal jams and artisanal cheeses.

Piled high bookshelves and plush armchairs make for wonderfully cosy surroundings at The Library Lounge London. Luxurious liquid accompaniments include fine leaf teas, elegant flutes of champagne and sparkling wine, and cleansing gin cocktails.

A quintessentially English retreat in one of the city’s most vibrant areas, The Library Lounge South Bank is 4 minutes’ walk from Waterloo Station. The Library Lounge can be accessed via the main entrance to the London Marriott Hotel on Westminster Bridge Road. Alternatively, enter via the South Bank (Queen's Walk), above the London Aquarium. Valet parking is also available on site.

    Great afternoon tea. Different to the normal offerings. We had a lime and banana mousse to start, a tasty oblong quiche and sandwiches along with sweet snd savory toppings for the scones and some lovely cakes to finish. Chose the menu with the freeflowing alcohol which was really worth the money. The service was great. Will be going again!

    It was my third visit for afternoon tea and I wasn't disappointed. The service, the food, the views still amazing. Will definitely be back.

    Best afternoon tea in London with free flowing bubbles, perfect service, great setting/view and a discreet pianist in the corner to add to the atmosphere. Will definitely book again.

    Lovely afternoon tea in a relaxed and historical setting. Delicious food, generous bubbly top-ups with friendly and efficient service.

    Very pleasant and helpful staff. Lovely location. Cava was very good. Food plentiful and very good (especially the scones). Have been fo Aftenoon Tea in many places this is up there with the best. The highlight, according to my wife, was Jan the waiter, he was tasty too!

    A great afternoon tea and truly bottomless prosecco! Took a friend to afternoon tea at the Libary lounge, we had a lovely time, the staff were excellent and the selection of sandwiches and cakes just right. We were able to take our last glass of fizz into the bar next door and continue our fun afternoon. A must, especially for a visitor to London.

    The sandwiches, scones, and desserts were much more filling than we expected and we actually unable to finish everything! But it was all delicious, the servers were very kind and friendly, tea was wonderful, and the ambiance of the library lounge was very pleasant.

    Had a lovely afternoon. Staff were all so helpful and pleasant. We went for the afternoon tea with unlimited bubbles and unlimited was the word. Our glasses were constantly being topped up as were our teapots. Nothing was too much for them. The venue was lovely as well. Over looking the Thames and surrounded by books. My idea of heaven. I would definitely recommend trying this one ??
