Inside a breathtaking 5-star hotel overlooking the River Thames, The Lounge at the Royal Horseguards is a unique setting to indulge in a luxurious take on the quintessential British tradition of afternoon tea, with an al fresco terrace also on offer for when the weather allows.

Every aspect of the Lounge at the Royal Horseguards afternoon tea menu has been carefully crafted to offer the finest example of traditional British luxury. For starters, there is a unique signature loose leaf tea of strawberries and cream which perfectly complements the moist scones with indulgent clotted cream and jams. Beautifully presented finger sandwiches come with classic fillings such as smoked salmon, cream cheese, and cucumber, and there are also other contemporary savoury bites too.

Inventive sweet surprises are also served at The Lounge at the Royal Horseguards Westminster, such as marmalade jammy dodger, gooseberry inside-out Victoria sponge, and Pimms almondine. As well as the signature tea, there are other exotic blends like organic Monteviot Darjeeling, Oolong Fleur D'Orient, and Persian Pomegranate. Diners can also choose to add glasses of premium champagnes to their meals.

Housed in one of London's most iconic areas, and with wonderfully elegant touches throughout, The Lounge at the Royal Horseguards London sits 3 minutes' walk from Embankment Tube Station.

    Great food, very tasty and generous portions (particularly the cheese platter which we couldn't get through). Mock cocktails also very nice.

    Hi. Was a little disappointed from first arrival as there was no one around to show us to our table so we had to find someone ourselves. We were then waiting a very long time for someone to come over and welcome / introduce us. When someone finally did, we had to ask them for the tea menu. It was then another very long wait for the tea and champagne to be served. Once the food finally came out, it was brought over to us but the lady didn’t talk us through what anything was. So we had to find another waitress to help us.

    Overall a very slow wait and we didn’t feel very welcome at all. I don’t expect this from a 5 star hotel especially when you are then required to pay the service charge.

    The food was lovely but just the service was not to a very high standard.
