Overlooking the Royal Mews of Buckingham Palace, The Palace Lounge is a tranquil retreat within The Rubens hotel. Afternoon tea at The Palace Lounge pays respect to tradition whilst incorporating fresh twists.

Befitting its location, the Royal Afternoon Tea features mouth-watering pastries influenced by royal events. Savour jam pennies, red velvet cupcakes influenced by the House of Stuart or the chocolate biscuit cake, a favourite of Prince William and Prince Harry.

The traditional menu is also adapted for younger diners, in the form of the Little Prince and Princess Tea. Young diners can enjoy bit-size sandwiches, fresh scones and pastries, and a choice of milkshake, hot chocolate, tea or soft drink.

Able to accommodate any special dietary requirement, afternoon tea at The Palace Lounge London is a quintessentially British affair. Victoria Rail Station is a short walk away.

    A friend of mine came by to visit London / Great Britain and that is why, of course, I wanted to go for a nice English Afternoon Tea. The Palace Lounge was the perfect setting to do this. The food was delicious, the tea a pleasure and the staff just absolutely wonderful. We especially liked the fact that there was live music - a pianist who sang beautifully. Thanks for having us!

  • ((*** 26 December 2016 by Rachel Ward from London

    Booking was easy, service very god BUT the food was average and unimpressive- cold scones which were also dry and no where near enough cream or jam.
    Jam on rounds of dry white bread is hardly a festive tea!
    Mulled wine nice and plentiful but you had to ask
    We won't go there again
