Afternoon Tea
Settle into a comfortable chair, lean back, and browse the selection of gins in the Winter Garden, the leafy heart of Kimpton Clocktower Hotel’s distinctive dining spaces. Every detail—from the furniture to the lively green color scheme—has been thoughtfully considered. If you happen to be around on a Saturday or Sunday, kick off the weekend—or help lift the weight of the night before—with a Bloody Mary (even a virgin one).

Really great service- we were a bit late for our table and they held it for us. Chatty and friendly bar staff, security and waiters and beautiful interiors. Drinks were great too.

The service was poor... We were forgotten about for menus, drinks and then for our food too... Just felt like we were an inconvenience because we weren't in the main restaurant... Shame really because when we came on the Monday the week before we had great service.
