Restaurant description

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.

    This is the best afternoon tea in London (and I have done my best to research this properly - lol) and well worth the cost.

    I took my best friend for afternoon tea at the Savoy hotel to celebrate her special birthday, she has experienced quite a few at London's best hotels but we can both say that the Savoy has beaten them all, everything was just perfect, the food, the service, the young man playing the piano was also fantastic, a great experience where nothing was too much trouble, would definitely return.

    My friend and I were so excited to be there. It was like travelling back in time to the 1920s. Brilliant atmosphere and we we're treated so warmly by all the staff, who were very attentive. It was an amazing experience. We plan to dine there again in the near future.

    I had Afternoon Tea at The Savoy and it was superb. The staff were incredibly professional and the tea a triumph. If in London, use The Savoy for your experience. 10/10

    The service was great and the teas were sublime but the quality of the sandwiches were poorly mediocre

  • By Cindy W from Zurich

    Beautiful setting, some great tea selections but typically starts with lots of sandwiches which fills you up and not that many choices of cakes. The clotted cream was not the type that is soft and melt in your mouth like the one that I had tasted in Bath. For the price one has to pay, nothing really to rave about.
