Afternoon Tea
Regarded as the heart of the hotel, the Thames Foyer in London is a stunning glass-domed atrium, radiating natural light and sociable warmth. An impressive gazebo takes centre stage from which a pianist plays during the day, creating an enchanting atmosphere.

Guests have been coming to the Thames Foyer to enjoy our famous Savoy Afternoon Tea for over a century. An extensive range of over 30 teas are accompanied by twists on classic sandwiches, homemade scones with clotted cream, jam, and lemon curd, and the talented pastry team’s selection of pastries, each one a tempting work of art. To this day, we honour the traditional service style of Afternoon Tea, a custom that dates back to 1840. Come and enjoy a stunning dining experience that has stood the test of time.

Dress code: smart casual.

    Reception was amazing, not only did they address us by name but mentioned my daughters graduation as our celebration. Table in the foyer was lovely, set with China and a beautiful rose. Food was exactly as it should be for tea. Server, Deepa, could not have been nicer. She was cheerful, knowledgeable and extremely attentive. Very pricey, but you are paying for the experience as well as your food & drink.

    A fabulous experience from start to finish. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Every single member of staff was amazing. Friendly and genuine. We were looked after perfectly by Deepa. She made us all feel special and especially my Mother whose 80th birthday we were celebrating. We opted for the Afternoon tea. A choice of teas and these were very regularly topped up with hot fresh tea. A platter of delicious sandwiches and savoury bites were served and further sandwiches offered when these were finished. Then the cakes. The pianist struck up Happy Birthday and the staff delivered a small chocolate cake on a decorated plate with a candle. A cake stand containing 2 scones each and 4 cakes was placed on our table along with clotted cream, jam and lemon curd. Each was completely delicious. Deepa offered us further cakes but we really were full. This was an amazing experience. My mother loved her birthday treat. The staff at The Savoy made this absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend. The level of care and attention to detail was outstanding. Thank you.

    The food and service were great. The live music during afternoon tea was a delightful addition as well. The room was appropriately staffed so we were always well attended. Was quite satisfied and full — couldn’t even finish my meal, and would look forward to going again.

    Took my daughter there for afternoon tea as a reward for finishing her A levels. We had the nicest time. She felt very spoilt & pampered. Such a lovely waiter & the cakes and scones were to die for !
