Afternoon Tea

Luxury Afternoon Tea in London - A British tradition served in a historic setting.

Nestled between the elegance of Mayfair and the creativity of Soho, the Oscar Wilde Lounge is the space where great minds came together to change the world. It is in this very room that Oscar Wilde fell in love with Lord Alfred Douglas, Aubrey Beardsley debated with Whistler, David Bowie retired Ziggy Stardust and Mick Jagger, the Beatles and Elizabeth Taylor danced the night away. Dating back to 1865 and formerly known as the Grill Room, the gilded room was renamed in honour of our most famous patron becoming the Oscar Wilde Lounge. Today, this dramatic setting is home to Hotel Café Royal's award-winning afternoon tea service, presented masterfully by our dedicated restaurant team and creative chefs. 

We are proud to have been named the Best Traditional Afternoon Tea in the UK at the Afternoon Tea Awards 2017/18.


Diptyque Afternoon Tea

Experience an award-winning afternoon tea service created to tempt the senses in the heart of London and in a unique historic setting. Our diptyque afternoon tea takes inspiration from some of the brands most iconic floral scents. The menu of sandwiches, scones and fancies is accompanied by your choice of 30 tea blends and infusions and a live pianist.

The Spring and Summer diptyque afternoon tea is a floral delight that takes flavour inspiration from the perfumers Geranium Rose, Freesia, Choisya Orange Blossom and Baies Rose & Berries scents. The Oscar Wilde Lounge has been decorated with wild flowers and diptyque scented ovals to complete the experience.
