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.

    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.

    Nice experience. Location and ambiance was lovely. Good selection of teas and cakes but little disappointed with no sandwiches provided.

    Overall it was a very good experience.

    We had drink and tea to start and the sandwiches and cake were a long time following but we had plenty of fresh tea supplied when they cakes did arrive.

    We were a bit confused over which was better the Gin Afternoon Tea or the Covent Garden afternoon tea, both at the same price. On balance, the Gin afternoon tea was better value.

    We couldn't finish all the cakes and the staff put them into a nice cake box for us to take away.

    Service was slow. Food over priced. Bar soul-less. Staff hopeless

    The afternoon tea was absolutely delicious. The 'sandwich' selection was so nice & the different breads used were so nice. The cakes were so light, fluffy & flavoursome. Scones were tasty too my only criticism is the Strawberry jam! Try using Tiptree jam as the jam did not have much flavour at all. Overall though I would definitely recommend & would go again.
