At The Palm Court, Tea at The Ritz is a sophisticated British tradition that should not be missed. A proud member of the Tea Council's esteemed Tea Guild, Tea at The Ritz is served in the impressive Palm Court on Piccadilly.
A minute away from Green Park station, surrounded by the boutique shops and Royal Parks of London, the grand setting of The Ritz is famous the world over. In this enchanting landmark, residents and tourists alike are invited to indulge in a most exquisite afternoon tea. Delicate sandwiches, freshly baked jam and clotted cream scones, and a choice of dainty pastries accompany an eclectic selection of teas. You can also celebrate a special occasion by enhancing your tea further with cake and a glass of champagne.
The Ritz London has a dress code in different areas of the hotel as follows: Gentlemen are required to wear a jacket and tie (jeans and sportswear are not permitted for either ladies or gentlemen) for afternoon tea in The Palm Court and for lunch and dinner in The Ritz Restaurant and Terrace. In all other areas of the hotel (The Ritz Restaurant breakfast service, The Rivoli Bar, The Long Gallery), smart casual attire is required. Please note that shorts, trainers and sportswear are not permitted in any of the hotel's restaurants or bars.

Beautiful and opulent dining room let down by an underwhelming selection of sandwiches and pastries. Service is not what I’d expect from such a prestigious hotel. Disappointing experience for my Mum’s birthday.

Our dining experience was perfect. I loved the oval shape of the tables so you seated next to ur partner rather than across the table. The waiters were very attentive and engaged in conversations about our day and our experience. The cakes we couldn’t eat were packed up in lovely boxes for us to take away. We weren’t rushed in any way at all. A thourally enjoyable experience.

The food was delicious (the scones were still warm from the oven) and the Palm restaurant was a lovely elegant and very fine traditional style restaurant with service to match. A lovely experience and ideal for a special occasion.
