Set within the historic crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral, The Crypt 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, St Paul's Tea Room brings classic British indulgence to one of London’s most spectacular buildings. Find St Paul’s Tube Station just 2 minutes’ walk away.

    I didn't think the atmosphere was as good as expected. More expensive than many afternoon tea venues I have been too, and thought there would be a little more ambience. The waitress was very nice and offered us champagne instead of sparkling wine, as it was a special birthday, for my friends 50th.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Champagne Afternoon Tea in the Wren’s Tea Room in the Crypt at St Paul’s Cathedral - one of the best experiences we’ve had and they happily accommodated the special dietary requirements for one of our party - highly recommended!

    What a lovely experience, this was a treat for my daughter's 22nd birthday. Lovely atmosphere and the food was delicious, especially the chocolate bomb!

    Excellent afternoon tea!
    Only improvement would be to have toilets within the restaurant as the queue for the Cathedral toilets are big

    Sorry, but I was disappointed. There were not enough fellow diners to create any atmosphere. The waiter was very pleasant and the sandwiches were ok but the scones were terrible, over baked and dry . The chocolate bomb was good but the white chicolates were just that. The cheesecake thing was three separate layers and not very interesting. Sorry but you must try harder.

    I went with a group of friends to visit St Paul’s Cathedral. This seemed ideal to finish off our visit. Located in a quite area off from the main cafe and souvenir shop which is lovely after bustling through the sightseeing groups. Our table was ready and we were greeted politely and offered drinks. The array of sandwiches per person was adequate and was of good choice. There were usual selection of teas to accompany our afternoon tea. There were two scones per person one plain and one fruit. Both were warm, light with a crisp crust accompanied by a large scoop of cream and Tiptree jam. My vegetarian option for cake was a chocolate bomb with hot caramel filled with honeycomb and chocolate brownie and a Eton mess. Both were absolutely delicious and thoroughly devoured! The non vegetarian option was a cheesecake with raspberry gelatine topping, which was not to the liking of all three of my friends.
    Overall, a wonderful experience, good courteous service and good afternoon tea selection.
    I would definitely recommend The Crypt.
