Had a really nice afternoon tea at The Den and it was good value. They accommodated for vegetarians and had lovely tea options. The venue was small but cosy and inviting. The staff were friendly and the service was great, we felt very comfortable.

We went to the Den for afternoon tea while on holiday in London and we are so glad we did. The afternoon tea had a perfect mix of sweet and savory menu items, all of which were full of flavor and delicious. The ambiance was nice and quaint as the Den was tucked away in the corner of the St. Martin’s Hotel. I would definitely recommend this spot if you are looking for an authentic tea time experience.

This was bought for a birthday gift afternoon tea, and she had a wonderful time. The service was mentioned as amazing, especially with the extra birthday cake! The quantity and quality of food was also great. Easy access to theatres and ballet! Thank you

My wife and I visited St Martin’s Den for afternoon tea on her birthday. It’s a small, cosy venue with just a dozen or so tables. Staff friendly, attentive and got the balance just right between giving us time and keeping us fed and watered.
Afternoon tea traditionally consists of savouries and a selection of sweet cakes. The sweet selection was excellent but my only criticism would be that the balance between sweet and savoury was not quite right. Too few savouries for me.
That said we wold visit again so couldn’t have been too bad.

Our visit to the Den was part of a birthday day out to London, pre show booking. The Den is a small area off the entrance lobby of a hotel. As such, it is quite difficult to find as there is no signage to point you in the right direction. After unknowingly, walking past it a few times we had to ring the Den to find out which building it is.
The Den itself is a small room that is tastefully decorated and has modern arts / pictures on the walls, which are quite comical! You'll know what I mean if you go!
The service was good, attentive and helpful. The afternoon tea is good but not spectacular, the choice of sandwiches is fixed and will not be to everyone's tastes. A good selection of teas offered and the sweets are very good with plenty of them!
Overall, a nice place to go for afternoon tea and I would recommend it.

Swanky and modern den located in a hotel. Food and service was excellent during afternoon tea. Very cleaver portrats line the walls.

conveniently located next to ENO
very nice afternoon tea served by very friendly waitress
however food took almost 40 mins to arrive, tea was cold by then
disturbingly loud music coming in from the lobby
and various personel using the room as interconnecting room to other jobs
interestingly furnished room but try to sit in those deep armchairs and eat from a plate up on a regular height table ...

Had a very nice afternoon tea in the Den. We went because it was close and well priced, we'll go back because it was excellent - both the food and the service
