Restaurant description

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 crayfish with rocket and lemon mayonnaise, goats cheese with figs and honey or lime, honey and chilli chicken with guacamole. Follow this with a choice of freshly baked scones including clotted cream and homemade jam, or delectable treats such as black choux with lemon and honey, burnt honey jelly, vanilla custard and quince or apple mousse with honey compote.

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, including Big Ben.

    We enjoyed a very delicious tea in the Tea Lounge with very comfortable seating arrangements for a party of eight. The young waiting staff were particularly charming and accommodating and helped to make it a very enjoyable afternoon. Thank you!

    I took myt grandson for a 7th birthday treat. His Mum and little sister came too. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The tea was lovely and more than enough. My only comment is that they could offer a box to take leftover cakes home

    The tea served was very good, as were the sandwiches and scones. However, the patisserie, although beautiful, was overly sweet with too much cream and we could not eat them all.
