The Tea Lounge at St Ermins is a timelessly chic setting for luxury afternoon teas. An eclectic range of teas is on offer including classic, children’s and gluten-free options.

The St Ermin’s afternoon tea includes a range of teas alongside sweet and savoury delicacies. Amongst the luxurious sandwiches are smoked salmon and caviar, salt beef and horseradish, and cucumber and cream cheese. Follow this with a choice of freshly baked scones including triple chocolate and gingerbread, all topped off by delectable treats such as chocolate tiffin, peanut butter macaron, and orange posset.

St Ermin’s hotel in London is a fittingly elegant and extravagant location for such indulgence. With ornately textured ceilings, plush seating and traditional wooden furnishings, the Tea Lounge exudes sophistication.

Entered through a tree-lined courtyard, St Ermin’s in Westminster is a 2-minute walk from St James’s Park Tube Station, and a tranquil hideaway a short walk from many major landmarks.

    Perfect afternoon. We could not have asked for a more wonderful experience. The presentation, food, service were top notch! The staff went above and beyond to accommodate a dairy allergy. Highly recommend.

    Had afternoon tea with unlimited prosecco to celebrate a birthday. Lovely table on the terrace on a very hot day (even had Wimbledon on the TV in the background) Guest arrived very late because of work issues but staff were very patient and understanding. Only slight complaint was that my daughter is veggie and the veggie sandwiches were not great. Next time I will give advance warning but these days this is not usually necessary...

    The hotel is beautiful, staff friendly and international. Booking was easy. Everything was explained to us. You get 3 finger sandwiches, 2 half rolls, all very delicate, amazing flavours. The 4 cakes, beautiful presentation, followed by 2 scones. You are there for 90minutes max, the first 45minutes very attentive with the presecco, then you don't really see the waitress much....! Good quality presecco. Would prefer more savoury to sweet food. But a lovely afternoon treat.

    Horrible experience. Only 1 other party in tea lounge. Waited 10 min to be seated, then another 15 min to receive menu. Waitress was rude and seemed irritated that we were waiting on her. Took another 15 min for tea to come out. I've been to several tea houses in the States and had high expectations for an authentic experience in London. The tea we received was bag tea. Fresh, quality tea at real tea lounges is loose. Food took 20 min to come out and was unremarkable. Only received 4 sandwiches and about 5 desserts that resembled sweets served at buffets. No salad and sweets weren't fresh. The scones were more similar to muffins, dry and more like mini biscuit rounds. We paid $80 US dollars and required to pay an included service charge for terrible service. This was the worst high tea experience I've had. Would leave 0 stars if I could. Misleading yelp reviews.

    We had afternoon tea but service was slow took over 25 minutes before we had anything to eat or drink after being seated. I had to ask twice for the prosecco .We had book to have unlimited prosecco and we did not even get that prior to food and tea was served before the prosecco. The food was good although the scones were on the small side and there was no choice of jams. Although the service charge was in theory discretionary it was already added to the bill and it was too awkward to say to the waitress who served us that we weren't happy with the service and did not want to pay.

    Very accommodating as we were unavoidably late. Really lovely afternoon tea in a tranquil setting with plenty of choices. A real hidden gem.
