The Science afternoon tea was lovely. Very tasty sandwiches and savouries, the scones were light and the toppings were great. Excellent variety of cakes and sweet treats! Service was very good. A lovely afternoon!!

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.

    Science afternoon tea - a quirky, fun twist on a traditional afternoon tea.

    Superb, wonderful experience.

    It was a wonderful and creative experience. I especially loved the made your own lemonade complete with beakers and syringes. The cakes and sandwiches were delicious too. The only low point was the service- when we asked for a new plate or hot water- it’s like we were asking her to give us her first born! Otherwise, a wonderful experience and different to a typical British afternoon tea

    Afternoon tea was lovely! The staff was very knowledgeable about tea and the food was delicious!

    It was brilliant. The Science afternoon tea was cleverly put together with nice touches such as the lemonade experiment and fossil box. The room setting was great as was the service and price. We’ve been to a lot of afternoon teas at many different venues and this is certainly up their with the best

    Enjoyable and different afternoon tea experience.

    The science afternoon tea was a rather original idea and the taste was quite good. The service needs some improvement though: the tea got cold and too strong after 30 minutes; the service appeared to me rather perfunctory and therefore unfortunately lowered the attraction of the original idea of "science"...

    We really enjoyed the Science Tea! The food and tea were delectable, but all the science-themed treats really made it special. We especially enjoyed unearthing our fossil Dino and the liquid nitrogen special effects!
