Afternoon Tea
Afternoon Tea in The Crystal Moon Lounge at Corinthia Hotel offers one of life’s great luxuries. Illuminated by a spectacular Baccarat Chandelier and accompanied by uplifting melodies from a Steinway Piano, the Crystal Moon Lounge offers an idyllic atmosphere for a newly launched sumptuous Afternoon Tea.

Designed to showcase individual elements of a tea ceremony and with every aspect of a guests’ experience considered, our expert Tea Master weighs and infuses bespoke tea blends for the perfect cup of tea. Delight in this wonderful interactive experience, with cakes and indulgent patisseries served from our heritage trolley on a bespoke line of Richard Brendon bone china. For a touch of elegance, enjoy a glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne in Baccarat Mille Nuits champagne flutes with a nod to the breath-taking Baccarat crystal chandelier overhead.

We had a fantastic time celebrating my sisters birthday, I don’t normally write reviews but the Corinthia really made you feel special especially during these tough and confusing times we are in. The food and service were fantastic and the pianist was amazing

The staff at Corinthia are what makes this afternoon tea so special. From Paulo, to the incredible pianist, and the serving staff the service was second to none. The service is completely personalised to each set of diners, something that we’ve not experienced in other similar establishments. The food was really great, with the option to take as much food as you wanted home. Already planning our return - can’t recommend enough

Great place for tea without the stuffiness of some of the other well known afternoon tea venues. Superb service from our 2 waiters with plenty of choice and offers of more food and drink.

From the moment we stepped into the Corinthia Hotel we enjoyed ourselves! Peter, Violetta and Alessio served us afternoon tea and they made our celebration even better. They were discreetly attentive and knew when to top up and ask if we needed anything.


Afternoon tea was outstanding and we finished our day in the Northall Bar where Emanuele assisted us - again professionally discreet and attentive.

Great experience accompanied with live piano.
Attentive service, tasty gluten free selection although sandwiches were quite dry. Take away boxes should have some compartments though because unfortunately everything leaks through the gaps and the leftover desserts got ruined.

Afternoon presentation could have been better, we were expecting the sandwiches and scones to be served on a traditional afternoon stand. In terms of food, not sure if the bread was fresh and we were expecting smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiches not smoked salmon with butter.

Lemon drizzle cake looked dry

Unfortunately our table was not ready at 4 when we arrived. Service staff did not understand when you are with 2 hungry children you would like to be served asap and not offered drinks (afternoon tea comes with drinks). Hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows when you are about to have afternoon tea is not a good suggestion to a child (which you can then not correct without confrontation). Sandwich choice was standard and not very creative at all. One of the jams was sickeningly sweet, though the scenes were lovely light.
Waiting staff forgot all about our table during the break of the lady who was serving us, which meant it took ages for us to actually order the tea.. they seemed surprised I wanted to order tea after having had a glass of Champagne. When we asked for the bill they included the free offered drinks as we had to wait close to 40 minutes for our table. All in all not at all 5 star service and a really standard/average afternoon tea, not worth the high price ticket.

Absolutely perfect. The attention from the moment you walk through the hotel door is wonderful. Special thanks to Giacomo for his attention, and to the Manager who welcomed us(Sorry to forget your name, pregnant brain 🙈) you have helped make this birthday even more unforgettable. The food is delicious, and plentiful! And the dessert cart is gorgeous! All of 10, we will repeat without hesitation!

We took kids out for afternoon tea here for their first afternoon tea experience. The kids really enjoyed it. The service was very good. Especially as we arrived about 30 mins early & rather than tell us to come back, the staff made every effort to accommodate us so we were not waiting too long. Once the food & tea started the quality was as good as any other we have had elsewhere. I would recommend to anyone especially for a special occasion

We had a fantastic time at The Corinthia Hotel at afternoon tea. Special thanks to Paulo and his team, we do not recall the name of his colleague who served us, she and Paulo were friendly, courteous, professional and most pleasant. Please also pass on our thanks to the pianist, our teenage girls recognised nearly all the songs she played. Thank you once again.
