The Tea Lounge & Library at St. Ermin’s is a relaxed yet stylish environment to enjoy afternoon tea. Each afternoon tea is inspired by seasonal ingredients, some of which are grown on their rooftop kitchen garden; this fresh produce shapes every afternoon tea, whether it be classic, themed, children’s or gluten-free. In the summer, afternoon tea is also served on the hotel’s outdoor terrace.

The St Ermin’s afternoon tea includes a range of teas alongside sweet and savoury delicacies. Amongst the luxurious sandwiches are prawn with lemon and dill, cucumber with mint and chive cream cheese, coronation chicken or Cumbrian ham with Montgomery cheddar. Follow this with a choice of freshly baked scones including clotted cream and homemade jam, or delectable treats such as passionfruit and coconut éclair, rhubarb and custard verrine or peach and apricot mousse.

St. Ermin’s is reached by a tree-lined courtyard, as you walk through the doors you are greeted with a friendly smile, original rococo plasterwork and a warm atmosphere. The hotel is soaked in history, with links to Winston Churchill and espionage, this sense of character extends to its approach to service, where everyone is treated as an individual.

St. Ermin’s Hotel is conveniently located in Westminster, only two minutes walk from St James’s Park Tube Station, with many of London’s major historical attractions on its doorstep.

    I was visiting family and had them all to tea. It was a great experience! The food was plentiful and delicious. The surroundings were beautiful and comfortable and the service was excellent.

    The service and food were amazing, and the hotel is beautiful. The sweets on the tea selection were so creative and well done. We booked the bottomless prosecco tea, and only once did I make it to the bottom of my glass, but that only lasted a few seconds. The only issue we ran into was that the offering had recently changed to bottomless rose wine instead of prosecco. Of course, the staff was very accommodating and we were able to have the prosecco. I will certainly go back and give the rose a try as well.

    The service was amazing and the afternoon tea was one of the best! The sandwiches are traditional which was lovely and the desserts were very special. We went for the bottomless Rose option and we were not disappointed!

    This was a fabulous experience!!! The tea room is beautiful to look at and in a cozy corner upstairs in the hotel. We were greeted promptly and seated right away. Our server gave me some recommendations for the flavor of tea (she was spot on) and then started bringing the food. The sandwiches were delicious-the Coronation Chicken was my favorite. The little desserts were also phenomenal!! I loved the little flowerpots with chocolate “dirt”. I was especially looking forward to the scones and clotted cream and they did not disappoint-they were fantastic. Keep on doing what you’re doing, this is a wonderful experience and one I will recommend to all of my friends!

    The Tea Lounge is fabulous! Very easy location, beautiful setting, loved the room decor, the furnishings etc. Very English traditional floral crockery and cutlery - all added to the experience. The afternoon tea as wonderful! Very pretty, colourful, beautiful and delicate sandwiches, cakes and desserts. Fragrant tea with lots of choice. Absolutely fantastic prosecco :0) ! Table service was friendly and attentive. Really excellent value for money.

    The tea time was correct but there was no more children tea time available. I find this not normal since they do a lot of publicity for the children tea time.
