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.

    One of the best afternoon tea experiences with excellent service, great choice of teas with information about each. The sandwiches and scones were beautifully fresh and more were available if required. Good choice of cakes to suit most palates. The restaurant was bright and airy and we would have loved to have sat in the covered outdoor area but it was a very wet, cold day.

    I enjoyed the traditional English tea.

    The afternoon tea was nice and the service was ok. We had a lovely server to begin with but after that service was slow and the manager decided to comment on the fact 2 of us had sat at a table for 4 (even though at the time there were no other diners on the terrace). we hope her staff member didn't get into trouble as it was us who decided to sit there...
    The sandwiches and scones were delicious but the pastries were not to our taste so we were slightly disappointed (but that's just our own personal opinion).
    Taking this on board we decided the afternoon tea wasn't worth the £36 per person (it's usually £32 but they add a service charge on). We asked to take the service charge off when paying our bill (we had also not budgeted to pay nearly £40 per person for afternoon tea and forgotten about extra service charges when booking). We were made to feel a little embarrassed for doing so.... we understand service charge is quite common in London but if it's discretionary surely that means we can chose whether we pay it?! We simply hadn't budgeted to pay over £70 between us for sandwiches and scones....
    All this aside the majority of staff were polite and friendly, the hotel restaurants looked clean and quirky and it was in a lovely location.
    I would perhaps make it clear on the website or upon arrival that there will be a service charge added to the bill at the end and allow payers to discreetly choose whether or not they would be paying it.... Or they could even add the service charge into the price as it is???
    Many thanks.

    Le cadre est très joli , nous étions dehors sur le balcon, peu de monde , très agréable.
    Malheureusement nous n'avons pas aimé les sandwichs trop insipides et les pâtisseries assez quelconques et il n'y en avait qu'une par personne .
    Les scones étaient très bons avec la confiture .
    Le thé était quelconque.

    Le prix est cher par rapport à la qualité de la nourriture. Nous avons préféré d'autres Tea Time par ex Sketch ou Intercontinental , c'était plus raffiné.

    Le personnel est très aimable , le cadre de l'hôtel agréable .

    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.

    Really nice relaxing afternoon tea. Staff very attentive and lots of choice.

    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.
