Afternoon Tea at Café Royal

Traditional or contemporary, the choice is yours...

We are very proud to offer two very different experiences at Hotel Cafe Royal. The first being our Van Gogh afternoon tea served in the Oscar Wilde Lounge (formerly The Grill Room Est. 1865) and the second coming courtesy of Michelin starred chef, Albert Adrià who has designed his Sweet Afternoon Bubbles menu, a contemporary alternative to the traditional afternoon tea experience.

Van Gogh Afternoon Tea

Hotel Café Royal has partnered with ‘Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience’, a 360º digital art exhibition in London that invites you to step into the awe-inspiring universe of Van Gogh. The bespoke menu has been designed by our award winning Head Pastry chef Michael Kwan to take you on a magical tasting journey through Van Gogh's most famous art works. From the savoury options to the sweet delicacies, as well as the unique selection of cocktails and tea, every element of the afternoon tea takes inspiration from him. Served in the stunning Oscar Wilde Lounge, formally known as The Grill (Est.1865) which welcomed famed patrons from royalty, celebrity and the creative.

Available Thursday to Sunday, served from 12.00pm until 5.30pm.

Priced at £65.00 per person & £75.00 with Champagne. There are gluten free, vegan and halal afternoon tea options available.
