Found within one of London’s most famous 5-star hotels, afternoon tea at The Savoy is served beneath a domed glass ceiling which floods this space with natural light, and a live pianist offering 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 Executive Pastry Chef, Daniel Pearse. 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.

    Very attentive staff. Sandwich bread a bit dry. Beef was pinker than I prefer, I did try but it was tough and I was unable to eat it.

    Setting exceptional. Lady who greeted us was a bit cool but Enzo and Lewis were outstanding. Our booking was for 17.15 and we had to wait, with no explanation, for 5-10 minutes for our table. Loved the atmosphere, specifically the piano player. Sandwiches were amazing. Quiche delicious. Cakes mediocre to be honest, I have had better. This could partly be because we had cakes with no nuts? I registered my sisters nut intolerance prior to our visit and my details were confirmed as noted, but they still brought out cakes including nuts. They took them all away when we mentioned the nut intolerance ( I don’t feel like a reminder should have been necessary!) and we waited, far too long, for replacements. Luckily we had our scones, which were sublime. New cakes were brought out (don’t know why all cakes provided were nut free as only one of us had the intolerance) and we enjoyed the remainder of our experience. Final note, loved the ‘birthday cake’ they brought for my sister, lovely touch. I cannot give a five for the overall experience as it was not exceptional, as it should be, for the money paid and the tradition of the venue.

    The service at the Savoy was incredible. Great setting and staff made you feel very welcome. I was however very disappointed with the food. The presentation was great but the cakes and sandwiches were mediocre. For an afternoon of indulgence it was not worth the calories and we left so much food behind. Would not recommend for afternoon tea have certainly had much better for the price.

    Pastries were pedestrian and did meet my expectations for refined taste and complexity of creation
    Cited multiple times the reservation was made to celebrate my sons graduation which they commented on upon our arrival but no acknowledgement was made with a gesture

    Otherwise excellent sandwiches, scones and accompaniments. Staff was professional and pleasant

    All three of us are ushers from our city New Theatre Royal. We took our theatre mascot with us and photographed the bear around the restaurant from the doorman to the table servers, also the pianist, she joined in. the food was excellent, trying the teas, which there were many to choose from was an experience in its self. Near the end of our visit, the waiter knowing that we were from the theatre brought out a table plate with the inscription “Welcome Theatre Royal Lincoln”, which was a very personalised touch and for the waiter to acknowledge us and act on it. We commend all the staff we talked to and participated in our theatre promotion. A very memorial and touching experience, which when we are in London again we will return.
    We thank you all.
