Restaurant description

The latest bar from the award-winning Mr Lyan (Ryan Chetiyawardana) and team set within the iconic Sea Containers London. Lyaness brings a cook’s approach to cocktails and flavour creation. The team present a menu based on their search and creation of unusual ingredients for their drinks, along with a curated selection of beers, wine and spirits.

Boasting views across the Thames, and a design featuring intimate smaller tables, it also has spaces for larger gatherings. The bar is warm and welcoming, whilst offering a focus on excellence, sustainability and innovation that the Mr Lyan team have become world famous for.

Tea at Lyaness uses this approach to bring cocktails into the classic afternoon tea setting. Featuring a signature White Jasmine Cake with Blanc de Blancs Champagne, through to a full selection of delicate sandwiches (like our burnt apricot Coronation Chicken), beetroot devilled eggs, pineapple upside-down scones & Earl Grey eclairs balanced with cocktails, petit fours and fine loose-leaf tea, Afternoon Tea at Lyaness brings a contemporary take on the classic.

Find Lyaness at Sea Containers on London’s South Bank. Southwark and Blackfriars Tube stations are both a short walk away, while travel own the riverside to see both Big Ben and the London Eye

    My husband and I had the Afternoon Tea with cocktails. The sweet and savoury plates were delicious. Out of pure greediness we would have loved more of the sandwiches and sausage roll/devilled egg. The cocktail pairings were perfect. The service was excellent and we were well taken care of. Thanks!

    Really good balance between savoury and sweet snacks (the sausage roll was my favourite). The vegetarian option for one of our friends was really appreciated, as was the welcome drink in recognition of his birthday.
