Found within one of London’s most famous 5-star hotels, The Thames Foyer at The Savoy offers its acclaimed afternoon tea. A domed glass ceiling floods this space with natural light, and a live pianist offers a calming musical accompaniment.

A long-time member of the benchmark-setting Tea Guild, The Savoy’s afternoon tea is meticulously crafted in-house by resident Pastry Chef, Ludwig Hely. Enjoy a stand of finger sandwiches and homemade scones served with clotted cream, and strawberry jam made to a treasured Savoy recipe. To follow, a range of delicious seasonal-themed cakes and pastries are served tableside from a silver platter.

Rare teas sourced from China, India, Sri Lanka and Iran are served in the finest polished silverware and delicate china tea ware, while flutes of chilled champagne can be selected for an extra-indulgent afternoon tea in London. Guests can also visit the on-site patisserie, where a menagerie of sweet treats are served alongside chocolates crafted by in-house chocolatiers.

One of the capital’s most celebrated afternoon tea experiences, The Savoy on the Strand sits 5 minutes’ walk from Charing Cross station.

    The tea and the acones were cold!!! Even when we asked for warrm ones, they disnt even bother put them in the microwave! Unacceptable! Generally overpriced and very touristic!

    Having previously enjoyed Tea at the Savoy and recommended it to several friends was very disappointed to return and not find the same enjoyable experience. Service was poor,. Tea luke warm, and a hair in the cup. This was greeted with an 'oh dear' I had to ask for a clean cup. Sandwiches and scones were good though jam and cream very sparing, cakes poor..

    My wife and I spent our first night as a married couple at The Savoy in March 1979 so we have always had a special fondness for the Hotel and have been back on several occasions to dine. We took our granddaughter, Olivia, for Afternoon Tea to celebrate her 8th birthday and she was enthralled by the grandeur of it all! As always, the food and service were outstanding and our waitress, Matilda, was particularly attentive and made Olivia feel like a Princess. A fabulous experience and one we will cherish - as will Olivia!!

    It was the second time this year I'd treated a friend. As oreviously it was a very pleasant experience, Adam and the rest of the team looked after us extremely well with just the right level of attentiveness and we both enjoyed the outing very much indeed

    Excellent service, very attentive without being to overbearing. The choice of a High Tea and Afternoon tea was amazing. We chose the High Tea (more savoury options). I asked if they could decorate a plate or cake for my Mums 80th,which they did and the pianist played Happy Birthday as they presented her with it, lovely surprise for her (quite a few people also celebrating that day too).

    Beautiful elegant setting to try a real English Afternoon Tea. Amazing service by staff and very delicious cakes and savory snacks. Very expensive (as to be expected) and absolutely worth it. Good prices for children.
