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.

What an absolutely amazing experience from the minute we walked through the doors.
Outstanding service, we were made to feel very special. The afternoon tea was beautifully presented and delicious. We were able to walk around the hotel an explore the most iconic hotel in the world. Can’t wait to visit again in the future.

Absolutely amazing afternoon tea, having tried the very best in London I was very impressed. Very rich choice of sandwiches which did mean tastebud overload / muddle but on the whole a wonderful experience.

This was certainly an amazing experience, if you like tradition this is the right address! The staff were super, friendly, attentive but not over powering. The feeling ob being spoilt was lovely, a perfect way to spend the afternoon with lots of carefully, beautifully made food - way too much. But what we couldn't manage to eat was packed up for us to take home. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon!

The afternoon tea was exquisite and the service was very good. It tapered a bit at the end and we had to serve ourselves unlike in the beginning. The ambience was lovely and it was nice to graze at our own pace and listen to the piano being played.

This was one of the big highlights of my trip to London. The food was delicious and the service was spot on. There was a pianist playing which set the mood for the elegance of the room/hotel.

I would recommend the Savoy for tea if you are willing to pay a high price for atmosphere and white glove service. You could get tea at other places for a more reasonable amount and it might be just as good. But, if you want a great memory and a classy place, then go to the Savoy.

Waltzing Matilda
You and your colleagues made my afternoon, Matilda. You can waltz me any day at the gorgeous Savoy Hotel - but preferably in the tea salon with all kinds of delicacies, your exquisite service and generous refills of tea and sandwiches. And not to forget the beautiful live music. A truly memorable experience. Thank you, mates!

The staff were very friendly and very understanding when a mishap with a champagne glass threatened to spoil the the day. The food was a great mix of tastes all of which were wonderful even when we they were not something we would not normally try. All in all a very memorable experience and one that we would love to do again.

I didn’t expect to leave with a full stomach but we did! The ambience and service is exceptional. We were offered seconds and thirds for sandwiches and quiche bites and they would give you as much as you want til you say stop! The tea in bottomless. And the service is unparalleled. Go ahead and treat yourself!

Lovely location and great staff. Sandwiches and scones were tasty but too much cake! Overall a tad expensive especially when they add the gratuity. But we enjoyed the occasion.

It was wonderful as always with the exception of Nicholas Cage wandering through the tea room in a temper over something and giving the poor man from the hotel a hard time as he followed. People paid good money to have a calming and lovely tea and here comes a bizarrely dressed in leather man from Hollywood, once upon a time, tramping through and ruining everyone's experience. Was he auditioning for the latest Quinton Tarantino film? Does the Savoy provide entertainment now? Really, Cage should be made to reimburse people for the intrusion.

Food and service is excellent. Definitely recommend. If I had to offer one (small) criticism, it is that staff should speak a little slower and louder when explaining the menu, especially for us guests who do not speak English as a first language.

Second time having afternoon tea at the savoy and on both occasions it was a very special experience. The only tiny criticism I could make is that the tea is a little weak when first served, or topped up with hot water, so should be allowed to brew an little before serving. The hot water could also do with refreshing at some point during the meal, as it tends to have gone cold after an hour or more and it is nice to take your time over the food. I’m sure had I asked for a refresh, this would have been absolutely no problem though, as nothing seems to be too much trouble.

Very poor service. Several people served us, left it very confused. Food arrived late as did tea. Tea was cold by time pastries came. Staff had to be reminded several times
To bring different courses and drinks.

Pastries quite bland, lack colour and variety.

Overall very disappointing
