Amazing. A first-class experience from start to finish. I enjoyed their "science tasting" theme with a great beginning and fun parts throughout. But don't be afraid: it's not a gimmick, just a small aspect of a fun high tea.

Located just minutes away from some of the best museums in in London, The Drawing Rooms is a cosy escape from the bustle of the city. Serving afternoon tea & all-day bites, this sun-lit venue is the heart of the luxurious Ampersand Hotel.

As well as all-day light bites, The Drawing Rooms afternoon tea menu includes coronation chicken & cheese tartine with fruit chutney, homemade scones with fruity jam and clotted cream, and a selection of pastries, such as the classic Victoria sponge & tangy lemon meringue tart.

With large Victorian windows allowing the place to bathe in light, The Drawing Rooms offer a quintessentially English environment to enjoy a selection of teas and rich coffees. Decked out with banquettes, deep sofas & studded armchairs in red velvet & kingfisher blues, it also provides a delicious vegetarian menu.

The Drawing Rooms in South Kensington is a 4-minute walk from the Natural History Museum, a 3-minute walk from the V&A Museum, and a 6-minute walk from the Science Museum. South Kensington Tube Station is just a minute’s walk away.

    What a wonderful place to have afternoon tea! From the feel of the room to the staff and the whole science Christmas tea - the experience was lovely and relaxed, Sandwiches and scones were yummy and the selection of special pastries and the showmanship of the dry ice with the mango flavoured snowball was exceptional.
    And the addition of an archealogical dig for fossils was insipired.

    I would heartily recommend it to anyone - the only thing we were disappointed about was we didn't get a little spaceman with our pastries as it was substituted with snowmen or elves. :(
    Otherwise though it met and exceeded our expectations. Keep up the good work.

    Loved the science themed tea. Scones where amazing ,

    Maybe a little card with instructions for the DIY lemonade would be useful , waiter rushed through explanation and we didn't really know what to do

    We really loved the science afternoon tea, it was fun and delicious, however it took over an hour for us to receive our food and 45 minuets before any of the wait staff acknowledged how long we had been waiting. Several patrons who arrived after us received our food before us. We were not offered any compensation for the fact we waited so long for the food aside from a cursory sorry and one mention it would be there soon, with no other explanation as to why. When I asked for service charge to be removed the waitress was very huffy and rude as well. I would 100% recommend the afternoon tea for the fun aspect of it and once it arrived the food was delicious, but the service left a lot to be desired and I wouldn’t be recommending it on the basis of that.
