Restaurant description

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.

    A lovely afternoon tea with my two granddaughters. Attentive staff, fantastic surroundings with tasty food and kits of fun to be had! Thank you

    We (family of 4) really enjoyed the Science afternoon tea. The decor and setting of the Drawing Rooms was lovely and we had a lovely window table. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The children enjoyed their 'experiment' to start off and almost all the food was really child friendly and they enjoyed it. Perhaps the 'planet mousse' was a little bit too rich for their tastes, but they loved everything else. The adult version was also delicious. It was nice to have an afternoon tea with a theme, but also nice that everything was well made and delicious. And the staff were all delightful which only enhances the experience.

    Overall it's a good experience for kids but it could be more creative and more experimental.

    Fun, there was lots of food and well worth the experience for both adults and children. Kids love the science experiment of making our own lemonade and digging for fossils. Dry ice effects were great too
