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 traditional Royal 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.

Autumnal Afternoon Tea

Enjoy a quintessential afternoon tea that celebrates the very best ingredients of the new season, served in the stunning, Grade II listed Oscar Wilde Lounge. Begin the experience with an indulgent truffle and mascarpone Gougère and an array of classic tea sandwiches, before moving on to homemade scones served with strawberry preserve, earl grey jelly and clotted cream. The selection of delicate patisseries have been created by our Executive Pastry Chef and feature Autumnal flavours including plum and almond, and fig and pecan praline.

Afternoon Tea is priced at £70 per person or £80 with a glass of N.V Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne.




Sweet Afternoon Bubbles Experience

Cakes & Bubbles by the ‘World’s Best Pastry Chef’, Albert Adrià, offers a parade of exceptional desserts and pastries alongside a wide selection of Champagne and sparkling wines. Enjoy a truly unique contemporary take on the afternoon tea experience. We are now delivering sweet treats to your home.

The Café Royal VIPPs - Very Important Past Patrons

Since its inception, the Café Royal has long been the place to be seen, and if the walls of this Grade II listed building could talk, the stories would be inspirational, magical, and most importantly, endless. Countless figureheads of society have walked through the doors of the Café Royal, from politicians and writers to musicians and royalty, each with their own stamp on history. 

Some of our most iconic past patrons continue to inspire the Hotel Café Royal even today, their legacies a consistent reminder of our illustrious past and foundations as a London landmark. To us, these individuals are more than just historical icons, but rather, our VIPPs – our Very Important Past Patrons, that is.

The History of Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea has been a part of British life since the early 19th century, filtering down from the aristocracy to be enjoyed by nearly everyone today. Find out how this tradition came into fashion on our blog.
