Restaurant description

Set within the historic crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral, The Tearoom at St Paul’s invites guests to dine surrounded by centuries of London history. This elegant, subtly lit space is lined with majestic stone pillars, and magnificent stained-glass arched windows.

Guests can enjoy a refined afternoon tea in this jaw dropping space, with the The Crypt menu featuring produce sourced from respected UK suppliers. Enjoy a stand of sweets and savouries piled high with meats from Cherry Farm and smoked salmon from John Ross Jr, as well as hand-crafted cakes and scones and pastries.

Complementing this London afternoon tea experience are fine teas and artisan coffees, along with sparkling wines sourced from an independent British producer.

A venture from the acclaimed Searcys group, The Tearoom at St Paul’s brings classic British indulgence to one of London’s most spectacular buildings. Find St Paul’s Tube Station just 2 minutes’ walk away.

Please note that the entrance ticket to the Cathedral is not included.

    Pleasant place for a relaxed afternoon tea following an extensive tour of St Paul's cathedral. Friendly and welcoming service. The meal was enjoyable but for my taste would prefer more sandwiches and fewer cakes. Other people may take a different view.

    Very good service, pleasant price, calm and nice place, great home-made food. The scones were excellent. The children were most excited for the brownie and the scones, not so much for the egg sandwich or the hot chocolate.

    Terrible experience in trying to make a simple booking for afternoon tea. Over several days nobody answered any of the numbers when we called, each voice mail box was permanently full and wouldn't accept messages, emails went unanswered, nobody ever answered the reception number etc. St Paul's, for such a prestigious venue, appears to adopt a very old school approach - everything from the lacklustre voices on messages to the completely non user friendly booking systems seems designed to turn customers away. We didn't have absolute confirmation until we were on our journey there. The actual tea when we got there was fine and the waiter was great and helpful. They offered us a glass of fizz as a gesture. However, would not put ourselves through that again.
