Average
Main course: £34
Food spend: £34
Opening hours
Tuesday to Saturday: 18:00 - 20:00.

The Library lounge setting is lovely, we had a table right by the window overlooking Big Ben. It is a quiet setting, so a little low on atmosphere as not many diners, but beautifully decorated for Christmas.
The £30 meal was excellent - reasonable size portions and well cooked.
Service excellent.

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 Marriot 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 chives and hot smoked salmon with crème fraîche in mini brioche buns, watercress egg mayo on brown loaf bread, and coronation chicken on carrot loaf bread. Irresistible arrangements of cakes and fancies include salted caramel chocolate cups, strawberry meringue nest and white chocolate raspberry tart, as well as sweet and savoury scones served with seasonal jams and artisanal cheeses. 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 seasonal game terrine with cranberry and orange jam, pan-fried cod with celeriac chips and pea salsa, and puddings such as gin and tonic syllabub served with candied cucumber. 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. Valet parking is also available on site.

    We had tea with free-flowing bubbles, and loved every minute. The choice of tea was large and well explained, the food was good and plentiful, and the bubbles really did flow freely.

    Lovely service, fabulous view - a great way to spend an afternoon

    Beautiful venue in idyllic location overlooking the River Thames and Westminster. Exemplary hospitality with attentive and welcoming wait staff. Bubbles were, indeed, flowing and quite tasty too! Memorable experience.

    Lovely location and good service. Overall it was a good experience but it was not the best afternoon tea that I have had in London.

  • ((((( 29 November 2017 by Jayne Marshall from Nottingham

    Thoroughly enjoyable. The ambience was great and we were not rushed in consuming our delicious Christmas afternoon tea. The waiter was particularly attentive, providing us with free flowing champagne and even extra sandwiches. This was the second time I had visited and will certainly be back in the new year,
