Overlooking peaceful gardens in the heart of London, Afternoon Tea at The Montague is set in the 4-star Montague Hotel. Recognised for excellence, The Montague has received a special ‘Award of Excellence’ from the UK Tea Council.

The Safari-themed afternoon tea menu showcases an inventive selection. Indulge in finger sandwiches with African-spiced chicken and apricot, freshly baked scones with Devonshire clotted cream, and an array of tempting treats including the giraffe-print macaron with salted caramel, toasted coconut mousse, banana meringue, and an extensive selection of traditional, flavoured, aromatic, fruit and green teas. The signature leopard cocktail is a must-have accompaniment: made with Amarula cream liquor, and decorated with leopard spots and paw prints.

The conservatory-style dining room at The Montague in Russell Square is bathed in natural light, and boasts views out onto the Bedford Estate, as well as the hotel's manicured private gardens.

A hidden gem in Bloomsbury, The Montague London offers timeless British elegance in tranquil surroundings. Russell Square Tube Station is a 6-minute walk away.

    Lovely location. We had tea outside in the garden setting but were given the option of inside in the conservatory. Service was very good. Food was lovely and as expected for a tea. My criticisms are very minor. First, the tea was supposed to be a Safari theme. This was very attractive to me as I will be going on a safari soon and the person I was sharing with was the one to encourage this upcoming adventure. The theme was a bit weak and the food listed on the menu didn't match the menu. It was delicious and beautifully presented but not to the theme as expected. We did order a second round of scones which took far too long to arrive (about half an hour) and then the server realized that it was only half of what we had ordered. She was hugely apologetic but by that time things were running a bit late and we didn't really need more than what was brought to the table anyway. Very small issues, I would go back in a minute for ambiance and the regular tea menu. Price very good in comparison to other similar tea experiences at this level in London.

    The service was lovely, the hotel charming and the terrace, though tiny was very nice. The afternoon tea was good, the scones and sandwiches were delicious and the option of asking for re-fills was great! especially the smoked salmon sandwich's, great! The cakes were the only slight let down, there was an exceptional cheese cake and good macaroons but they were a little dull otherwise. Shame. otherwise a great time had! I would go back, possibly for their 'scones only' afternoon tea though.

    The Montague is a beautiful hotel and a lovely place to visit. The little room we were in for afternoon tea was very nice, if a little hot and stuffy. The service was excellent, but we were rather underwhelmed by our food. The sandwiches were plain and quite boring in comparison to others we have had elsewhere. Likewise, there were only plain and fruit scones on offer with one type of jam, so not particularly imaginative. The cakes were alright, but only one of each was provided, rather than one each. They were quite tasty, but nothing special. I would not dine here again based on this experience.
