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.

    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

    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.

    Had a truly special afternoon for a friend’s big birthday. The sandwiches were delicious, and especially so since a few changes were made for my friend who doesn’t like cheese. (With no question and very kindly.) We had seconds! Scrummy scones and cream, homemade jam and lemon curd. We boxed up quite a few of the cakes and pastries to take home - not sure if it was the tea (poured for us) or the champagne, but we could not eat it all! The pianist was wonderful too

    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.
