We had an afternoon tea in the garden on a hot day. Really nice and intimate atmosphere. Friendly and attentive service minus 'snobby' feeling.
P.s. The scones were superb!

Afternoon Tea at Number Sixteen hotel is an elegant and luxurious affair. With the option to take tea in any of the public spaces, from the library to the tree-filled hotel garden, there is a setting for every weather and occasion.

The Number Sixteen menu covers classic afternoon tea with the usual sandwiches and scones on offer, as well as some lesser-seen creations, such as arancini, accompanied by sweet options such as Bakewell tart. A lighter option on offer is the ‘fruit tea’, which consists of 5 plates of colourful treats themed around blueberries, orange, lime zest and honey. A gluten-free tea is available on request.

The stunning landscaped garden offers a blissful escape from the bustle of London, whilst the colourful drawing room full of modern, decorative art and bright pink fabrics, is a funky, laidback setting. The cosy library and light-flooded conservatory are also open for afternoon tea at Number 16 in London.

Number Sixteen is situated in the heart of South Kensington, with the museums on its doorstep, and South Kensington Tube Station just a 2-minute walk away.

    My experience at Number Sixteen was great! The garden was picturesque and made for the ideal background for afternoon tea. The food was tasty and surprisingly filling. I especially loved the scones and the generous helping of clotted cream. For any visitor to London, I would definitely suggest a trip to Number Sixteen!

    Enjoyed afternoon tea in Sun June 3rd with 4 family members. It was delightful to be able to sit outside in the private garden. There was just the right amount of food inc 2 scones each & extra cream & jam if reqd - which we did! Staff were friendly, attentive & accommodated all our needs including one with nut allergy. Price was so reasonable. Highly recommend this hotel & this chain of hotels

    We had a great afternoon tea there. We've been there a few times now for afternoon tea and it's always a great experience.

    Beautiful experience with the afternoon tea. Tea was delicious as well the patries and the warm scones. Everything detail was perfect.

    Four of us came for afternoon tea. We thought the room we ate in was charming and liked the fact that it was quiet and quite intimate. The service was excellent .
    I think we all felt that the tea itself was very enjoyable (although not as good as teas we have had at the Savoy!) but the scones were disappointing - very hard and dry and possibly not freshly made. We all liked the choices of teas available and we agreed that we would be happy to visit again.
