Luxury Afternoon Tea in London - A British tradition served in a historic setting.
Featuring a modern twist on nostalgic British treats, Hotel Café Royal’s award winning afternoon tea is presented masterfully in the gilded splendour of the Oscar Wilde Bar, originally established in 1865 and the place where Oscar Wilde himself dined daily.
We are proud to have been named the Best Traditional Afternoon Tea in the UK at the Afternoon Tea Awards 2017.
There is no better way to celebrate a special occasion with friends or family than afternoon tea. Celebraton has been a tradition at Café Royal for more than 150 years. Reservations for seven people or more are available in either the Oscar Wilde Bar or the Domino Room.
