Afternoon Tea
Located in the heart of historic St. James and Westminster, Emmeline’s at Conrad London St. James is situated within a historic 19th century building, which was once Queen Anne's Chamber.

Emmeline's is filled with fanciful floral creations that emulate the chic whimsical space, with love seats, mood lighting and quirky sculptures. The stylish decor and the lenticular print of Alice in Wonderland in St James's Park make for a perfect setting for afternoon tea. Our Executive Head Pastry Chef and her team bring an array of mouth-watering savoury and sweet treats, adding new levels of sophistication to this most quintessentially classic of British culinary experiences. Served daily the contemporary Afternoon Tea is inspired by the glorious seasons displayed in St. James’s Park and events in London.

Our champagne afternoon tea is complimented by G.H. Mumm Champagne, an official supplier of champagne to Her Majesty.

Wonderful assortment of canapés, sandwiches and cakes, in a lovely calm environment. It was a quiet afternoon when we visited, however it is a spacious lounge so plenty of room and privacy even if it were full. Definitely will return (already my second visit)

We went for the afternoon tea. The service was excellent and the professional experienced stuff made us welcome and enjoyable. The decorations of the cakes are little too much and they were too sweet.

Exceptional service and high quality afternoon tea. We had booked afternoon tea with free-flowing champagne and they were true to their word even though in the period between us booking and attending, they had ended the offer. The new offers are (understandably) less attractive than the one with unlimited champagne!

Went here for afternoon tea. We had made a reservation and I asked an employee where the tea is. He pointed be to the seating area next to the lobby, not at all as cozy as the pictures... then, we were waiting for 20 min. There are at least 6 employees roaming around. We get no welcome, no menu, and consequently no tea. Stay away from this place!!!!

Emmeline's couldn't find the reservation, took more than 15 min and several reminders to find a table, were seated at a dirty table. Terrible impression and terrible service.

Free-flowing afternoon tea was indeed free flowing! Lovely savoury canapés to start then traditional sandwiches (following current trend for flavoured bread e.g. Beetroot bread with cream cheese and cucumber), lovely seasonal patisserie and scones. Live music was fabulous too but without it the space would still have been lovely, not hushed/stiff like some places.

The tea selection was good and the service excellent. The sandwiches and biscuits were perfect. Only the decor took away from the experience, but not much. Truly a wonderful place for High Tea.

inedible, weird salad plate (for tea?!!!), nice sandwiches & mediocre scones. a very good sweets finale couldn't save an otherwise bland high tea. on top of which, they had no record of the Opentable deal which brought us there in the first place. u memorable & disappointing for the price, despite very friendly attentive servers.
