Food was amazing and the staff were so lovely and accomodating. It's quite a filling high tea and the desserts are impeccable and the prawn item was my favourite!

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.

    We had a birthday celebration and enjoyed everything.
    The food was was amazing , not the usual sandwiches which left room for the best scones ever. The cakes were beautiful. The lounge room is just the right size , spacious but still cosy with lovely decor. Service was excellent. Attentive but not over the top. We will definitely be returning. Thank you for a great celebration day .

    The cakes and scones were fine but I really didn't enjoy the sandwiches which were a little too strange. Fillings were good but the orange and charcoal bread in particular were not very nice. Service was good.

    Really enjoyed Afternoon tea. (Covent Garden)in Lounge Bar. Presentation and quality of food very good. Service was faultless. Can't compare to Savoy as over half the cost but we would definitely return when we don't want to break the bank as excellent value for money!

    This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We asked for the time of our booking to be brought forward and this was done without any fuss. The service and staff were polite and helpful at all times. The afternoon tea was of a very good standard and beautifully presented.

    I loved the lounge bar and I have no complaints about the cakes and scones either. The overall experience however was a negative one. I wanted to give my wife a birthday present that would be a special experience but unfortunately the quality of service spoiled the expefience. I was quite unimpressed with the person at the bar chewing chewing gum as well as her lack of interest in telling us anything. She practically left us waiting without telling where to go or what to do. The waiter did his job but nothing more, not even a smile. No one came to ask us if we were finished or if we wanted to have something more. I do not understand why Palace hotel dares to charge a service fee after this kind of "service".

    Was disappointed with the new menu - the food was tasty but would have preferred sandwiches I brought 2 guests who had never been before and felt it was not the value for money that it used to be

    Liked the decoration and feeling of the place. However on the Afternoon Tea, service was a bit slow - there were not sandwiches but small open bread with toppings, tea was weak and expected a selection box as given at other hotels, cakes were nice and the scones were lovely, warm and the best part. We asked for a couple of extra scones, received four and then charged extra - did not expect that as usually you receive top-ups. We were charged the wrong price on the bill as they did not know we had booked through Bookatable, this was corrected when we queried it along with the charge taken off for the scones. And lastly the hotel did not answer my query about the booking when asked if my friend could swap tea for coffee. Not really the service i expected from this class of hotel.
