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.

Customer reviews for Number Sixteen
((((( 7 January 2019 by Laura from Gothenburg
After researching a lot of afternoon tea options in London, I settled on Number 16 primarily because it seemed like good value for money. The Kensington location is very beautiful and understated. The lady that hosted us was very attentive and made sure that we had everything we needed. The meal itself was very pleasant, beautifully presented and everything tasted great. I particularly enjoyed the macaroons and the mini cupcake with cream cheese frosting. I would recommend the number sixteen to the those looking for an affordable afternoon tea option without compromising on style.

We had a perfect afternoon tea at number sixteen. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the atmosphere was serene and we had a good view of the garden. They also make and fice you a nice looking doggybag if you want to take the leftovers with you. It was a good experience.

Due to the fancy looking location I was happily surprised the price for afternoon tea was lower than expected, and the service was splendid! Very kind, polite and helpful. The food was delightful too. It looked very nice and we chose this place for afternoon because it had many things on the menu that are like-able or sounded good enough to try. Also offering of hot chocolate instead of tea was a big pro!
