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.

    We all loved the Science Afternoon Tea at the Drawing Rooms. It was unique and very enjoyable. Service was excellent.

    We had the Science themed afternoon tea, one vegan and one regular version and the science themed cocktails, which we can highly recommend.

    I took my husband for his birthday and we had the vegan afternoon tea. The atmosphere was wonderful and the savouries and sweets on offer was very tasteful!

    Our tea was lovely. The food was delicious & presentation was exciting for both us adults and our children. The only negative thing I would say was my kids were looking forward very much to the dinosaur dig sweet as per the menu but we did not receive it, so we were a bit disappointed about that.

    We did the science high tea and thought it was fantastic. One of the most creative meals we've ever had - we loved it!

    Delicious sandwiches and cakes. Pleasant atmosphere. Smaller than I'd expected and our table was only 2m from the door which made it feel less special. For a family of 5, the tea cost over £200 so I was hoping for a really memorable experience as that's an awful lot of money for us. Although there wasn't anything wrong, it would have been nice to feel more pampered. A bit more effort in the service might have done that. And although there was plenty food, they should have made it clear we could have more and been a bit quicker. I finished my pot of tea and wasn't offered any more. My children weren't offered any more drinks after their hot chocolate. We asked for water as it wasn't clear whether anything extra would cost more.

    The food & drink was very nice, very quirky with the science theme.

    Wonderful afternoon tea for all ages. A perfect treat for children and adults alike with great attention to detail. Service was 5 star, location was perfect to combine a visit to the science museum with a science afternoon tea. I have had better cakes and sandwiches at other afternoon teas but they are still brilliant and I would definitely do back. The science experiments were just perfect and every little detail has been considered. Probably one of the most enjoyable afternoon teas I had, and I've had a lot!
