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.

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.

Palm court is breathtakingly beautiful ; staff are polite and attentive but looks like some are lost in the middle of repetitive routines and pushed smiles Tea was cold but rest top notch

Afternoon tea (with glass of champagne) was amazing. Palm court is outstanding and the service 5 star. It is unlimited tea and sandwiches, the pastries and warm scones are to die for. You need to be hungry for this experience because then there is cake to finish

I thought the place was lovely service very nice and helpful enjoyed it except food. I thought the bread for sandwiches was dry and the scones were warm to start but after a few minutes they were very tough and hard. Cakes weren’t as nice as I thought they might be. Suggests to me sandwiches were made too far in advance and kept too long or stored in correctly. Cakes suggest they were pre bought in and not made by hotel. Champagne was very nice.

A lovely ambience with the pianist playing, a beautiful classic afternoon tea and they catered well for my little girl who is dairy free. She loves it here and we’ve been a few times. Highly recommended for a classic version or afternoon tea at its finest!
