Offering postcard-worthy views over Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, The Library serves up a delicious afternoon tea throughout the day and a sumptuous set supper at night. Located in the Marriott County Hall Hotel, The Library features oak bookcases stacked with the classics and busts of literary and historical figures like Shakespeare, Plato and Milton, which transport diners back to the glamorous era of the 1920s.

On The Library menu, afternoon tea features freshly cut finger sandwiches filled with reimagined classics like Paprika chicken with peppery rocket in Carrot and Coriander bread, Grilled pumpkin and fennel muffins and Mushroom, leek and brie cheese quiche in a multi-grain tart. Irresistible arrangements of cakes and fancies include Lemon thyme and praline meringue tart, Amarena cherry and dark chocolate brownie delice, as well as sweet and plain scones served with seasonal jams and clotted cream. Liquid accompaniments include fine leaf teas, flutes of champagne and botanical gin cocktails.

The Library also offers a fixed evening menu featuring a modern take on the classics like Slow Roasted Gloucestershire Old Spot Pork Belly, Pan Seared Wood Pigeon, Curried Lamb Shoulder and puddings such as Sticky Toffee and Apple and Cinnamon Tart . To bookend your evening, choose a tipple from the Art Deco-style after-dinner drinks trolley, which will make its way around the restaurant.

A quintessentially English retreat in one of the city’s most vibrant areas, The Marriot County Hall Hotel is 4 minutes’ walk from Waterloo Station. The Library London can be accessed via the main entrance on Westminster Bridge Road or alternatively, enter via the South Bank (Queen's Walk), above the London Aquarium.
