Restaurant description

Indulge in the most decadent of all British traditions and enjoy a delightful afternoon tea, moments away from the recognised landmarks of Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus.

Amid the splendour of the 5-star Sofitel London St James Hotel, The Rose Lounge shares the hotel’s blend of English tradition and classic French style. This Grade II listed former city bank provides the opulent backdrop for a rose-tinted Afternoon Tea experience in soothing surroundings. Discover a collection of exclusive teas and selections of traditional pastries in the intimate and elegant decor of The Rose Lounge.

Plump, plush sofas in warm pink denote The Rose Lounge’s unmistakable feminine style, while the French influence is apparent in the delicate tapestries lining the room. A fine range of teas pour from fine china pots, complementing delightful Parisienne pastries.

Tempting cakes and dainty cut sandwiches hallmark the suitably elegant Rose Lounge menu. Fresh fragrant roses and the subtle strains of a harp among its sensory signatures, The Rose Lounge in London offers an intimate atmosphere to enjoy this most civilised of British traditions.

    We had the Afternoon Tea there, and it was excellent. The room is really beautiful and they have a great service.

    Excellent, as always. Service, food, setting all beautiful and the harpist adds an extra level.

    I love coming here for afternoon tea. It's such a cosy, relaxing lounge and the soft music in the background by the harpist completed the luxurious ambience. The food is plentiful and I recommend the free flow option.

    We had the endless champagne option and it was brilliant. Service was as expected from the Sofitel - Faultless. Left there full up and bit wobbly.

    Beautiful setting, and food was very nice. Only downside is they didn't have anything less than Champagne (cheapest at £75) which feels a bit elitist to me. Sandwiches were fine, but egg mayo tasted very strange to me! Scones were wonderful, as were the pastry but could have done with some 'old favorites' as they were all quite niche meaning quite a few were left and the rest fort over! Good value for money though. Service very slow but polite, patient and friendly.

    What a wonderful experience. the atmosphere was beautiful, the tea and sandwiches were delicious and the staff extremely pleasant. I've only been to London twice and both times had a lovely afternoon tea at the Rose Lounge.

    We thoroughly enjoyed afternoon tea at the Sofitel St James, which we had in the Rose Lounge. The service and decor were excellent and the food was very good. We chose the 'free flowing champagne' and it really did just keep coming!
