Afternoon Tea
Afternoon Tea at The Savoy is the heart of The Savoy hotel and the perfect venue for light, informal dining. Its reinstated glass cupola, based on a guest's drawing, once again allows natural daylight to flood in on even the darkest day. The centrepiece of the room is the magnificent new winter garden gazebo.


Guests can also indulge in Afternoon Tea in this comfortable and intimate spot accompanied by the hotel's resident pianist. Afternoon Tea at The Savoy is an enduring custom where guests can choose from a range of teas served with finger sandwiches, homemade scones with clotted cream & jam and a mouthwatering selection of cakes and pastries.


Afternoon Tea starts from £65.00 per person.

Everything was perfect except I think the food especially the flavors of sandwiches were disappointing.. it was bland. And the presentation of the cakes were disappointing too.

Service was excellent. We arrived early and were sent to the American Bar. The host then came and collected us when our table was ready. Lovely snacks served with the drinks in the bar.
Lovely ambience in the foyer. Loved the seating arrangement looking into the central area where the piano was being played.
The sandwiches were so fresh and loved the flavour combinations. The quiche was delicious too. We were offered more sandwiches but we were leaving room for the pastries.
The cakes and scones were amazing. The only problem was that I wanted to taste all of them so I had to cut them in half and share them with my husband!
The tea was plentiful as it was constantly refilled. The waitress constantly checked on us. We were even given a small anniversary cake which was a lovely touch.
Overall we were really impressed with the whole experience.

Very elegant place with very good food but I feel they deserve the 5 stars because they went out of their way to accommodate a milk allergy.

A superb experience! Loved the special touches for my friend's birthday. Well looked after by the staff and not rushed at all. My only, very small, niggle was that the tea went cold after a couple of cups - I'm sure if we had asked, that would have been rectified though. An experience I would definitely repeat. Thank you.

Truly amazing! We booked for afternoon tea for my birthday; our son had their children’s ‘Tiger who came for tea’ menu and my husband and I had their traditional menu with brut. Everything was impeccable, delicious and service was second to none.

It was a special occasion for my mother’s birthday. We didn’t know what to expect but it exceeded all of our expectations. The food was incredible. The service was outstanding. A talented lady played the piano in the middle of the room which was fantastic.
It was a very special experience.

I visited the savoy 5 years ago for Afternoon Tea and the quality has very much diminished. we had a great time last visit. It really felt like a production line this time. The scones were O.K and the cakes and pastries had some weird combinations. our waiter was not that attentive. I would not go back.

If you have never been to an afternoon tea before, you should go for the experience. The tea is top quality but the food is only average. You can refill sandwiches and all desserts on the tray as well as refresh your tea for the set price you pay. The piano playing adds to the ambiance. The service is excellent.

Everything was good, but we were given a table that had low seats which were difficult for our elderly mothers to move in/out.

The most disappointing thing was the fact that there were quite a lot of people that were dressed rather casually with trainers and jeans etc - I would expect the dress code to be of a higher standard than that!

We kept waiting for more tea refill. Our server, Louis/ Lewis, did not come often to check on us. Although the teapots were on the table near us, it was indicated that we would need him to serve us or refill the tea cups versus self-serve. We wish the service was better.

Booked traditional afternoon tea for a birthday celebration. From the moment we arrived we felt special. Shown to our table and napkins placed on our laps, we didn't lift a finger. The sandwiches were lovely with a good variety, fresh and topped up regularly. The cakes were delicious, although unusual tastes. Tea was topped up frequently and the service was impeccable. A lovely atmosphere and a lovely experience

A wonderful afternoon for a special celebration. This was our second visit to the Thames Foyer, and lived up to all the first-rate aspects of our first visit. The atmosphere was relaxed, from the welcome at reception to the excellent service provided by the serving staff. A glorious selection of sandwiches, beautiful scones to die for, and patisserie of real quality made our visit something special to remember. This will certainly not be our last visit.

Fantastic afternoon spent in the Savoy celebrating my wifes 60th birthday. Staff were attentive and looked after the three of us without being overbearing. Sandwiches and cakes were top quality with replenishments made if required. Wife has a gluten free diet and daughter is glegan, both of which were well catered for. Ambience was superb as expected, with the pianist playing well known tunes in the background. Jacket and tie not required, however I suggest you dress smartly to maintain the atmosphere in such a wonderful hotel. A highly recommended venue for afternoon tea.

Afternoon tea at The Savoy was exactly as one would expect...amazing service, amazing food, and amazing experience! It was the perfect way to finish our trip to London. Truly the cost was quite reasonable for the full experience and the quality of food. I think easily one of my favorite meals we had over the two weeks in Europe. Definitely splurge for this experience!
