Moments from Buckingham Palace, The English Rose Café is a wonderfully British venue for traditional afternoon teas and light snacks. This quaint 'grandmother's style' space serves up cups of tea from gilded-edged china tea cups, has quirky pictures covering the walls, and even boasts a playable piano.

Time-honoured British flavours are served throughout the day on The English Rose Café menu. In the mornings, tuck into full English breakfasts or lighter options like toasted teacakes with butter and jam, while for lunch there are rustic sandwiches, the traditional ploughman's, and jacket potatoes.

Afternoon teas at The English Rose Café in Victoria are a real treat, and come with a selection of sandwiches, cakes and warm scones on a charming tiered cake stand. There is also a selection of loose leaf teas and glasses of sparking on offer too.

Perfect for visitors to Buckingham Palace to get a real feel of elegant British tradition in a cosy setting, The English Rose Café is a quaint restaurant in London that sits just 4 minutes' walk from Victoria Rail Station.

    We booked in for a visit at the end of our London trip. Was nice to relax with a scone and a cut of tea before we had to board our flight back to Australia. The room is decorated in true Old English style and the piano in the corner was a nice touch. I'm sure it has significance to the room but didn't get a chance to ask about it. Service from the staff was excellent and the shop is in a great location just around the corner from Buckingham Palace.

    I visited The English Rose Cafe before a concert in Hyde Park. We had a lovely breakfast which set us up for the day. The food was delicious and we were looked after. Our request to change the full breakfast to a vegetarian option was not a problem. Although I got the impression there were a couple of new staff they asked the manager for advise quickly. The atmosphere is lovely with a quaint English decor, great for all visitors. Pleased I booked first, although it was not busy when we arrived it quickly filled up.

    Has a lovely lunch in the café eating jacket potatoes. it was very clean and tidy. Some quirky touches to the décor. Service was very good, staff very friendly - nothing too much trouble. I have already told friends it would be a great place for afternoon tea - I will return.

    Booked for afternoon tea but after being told of sandwich fillings was extremely disappointed . Settled for baguettes followed by scones .
    These were lovely. Iced coffee was weak , and water not chilled or with ice ! Served in s warm bottle .
    Girls were a little slow in serving and clearing but we weren’t in a rush. Loved the theme of the place very quaint

    We loved the English Rose Café, it is a very nice place, nicely decorated with an unique charm. We had breakfast at the venue, which was delicious and we even tried the scones with clotted cream & jam in the morning. Wonderful too! We will come back for sure the next we will travel to London.

    It s a lovely place near Buckingham palace. We went there for breakfast time early in the morning (9 am) and unfortunatly they dont have any bacon in the full english breakfast..... A shame no?? More ..thé service was very long..we wait 30mn. It s a pity because the place is cute.

    The service, the tea and the food were just amazing. The atmosphere was wonderful, with the music low in the background and the decorations so British. I loved it
