Sitting in an enviable setting right on the Strand, Lounge Bar Strand Palace Hotel treats diners to elegance and British tradition for its famed afternoon teas.

The varied compositions of the afternoon teas on the Lounge Bar menu offer eclectic choice for diners, while still retaining the traditions that have made British afternoon tea such an institution. Delicate fingers sandwiches can be filled with options like premium thinly sliced salmon, while the cakes are served alongside moist raisin scones with clotted cream and jam. A special champagne afternoon tea brings an indulgent kick to proceedings, with a carefully selected bottle being served with English teacakes and other treats.

In addition to the afternoon teas, Lounge Bar Strand Palace Hotel London also offers a selection of light meals, including tapas-style sharing platters of meatballs in spicy tomato sauce, and classic tomato brushchetta. There are also heartier options for larger appetites.

Lounge Bar Strand Palace Hotel is surrounded by local theatres, and sits moments from Charing Cross Station and Covent Garden.

    "Optional Service Charge" on tea for two is ridiculous. It is not optional if it is already included on the check when the check arrives. The tea service was very good and my husband and I enjoyed it.

    Pleasant surroundings and an interesting and tasty Afternoon Tea. A good variety of savoury items and pretty pastries., all enjoyable.
    Insufficient cutlery,: we required clean knives after our savoury food, pastry or small forks and small spoons for the small containers of jam and cream which were difficult to manage with the large knives.. A second plate would have been welcome.

    We had the afternoon tea, and enjoyed the experience. The staff were attentive and professional. The decor was lovely and the seating was comfortable. The items available were delicious and we liked our teas. Initially I ordered green tea, and was disappointed it was from a tea bag, so, I ordered a different tea and it tasted much better making the whole experience a memorable one.

    Very relaxing experience - an oasis of calm in the city.

    I had booked afternoon tea for two as a special birthday present for my daughter. Unfortunately it appeared that the booking was not 'on the system'. However, staff were very apologetic, made us comfortable and served us as soon as they could. It did mean that we had to wAit quite a while. All staff were very attentive and helpful and as an apology the two glasses of prosecco that we ordered were given to us without charge as an apology.

    A very informal atmosphere for the afternoon tea, which was held in the bar area. Waiter was polite but reeled off the list of teas in a bored manner. Waited 35 minutes for the food to come up, despite there being barely anyone in there. Bread on the sandwiches was hard so was sent back. Waiter was apologetic and immediately asked chef to make “a fresh one”. Turns out the sandwiches had been stored overnight in the fridge rather than being made fresh that day! Staff were friendly and helpful but overall a very underwhelming experience that was a disappointment.
