Afternoon Tea (commonly referred to as High Tea) is a British tradition of taking tea sandwiches, scones, cakes and of course, tea and is typically taken between 3 and 5pm. Generally this was a tradition observed by the upper classes and was begun as a way to tide oneself over between lunch and what was a very late dinner (around 9pm). It has become a lovely and elegant way to meet with friends and to slow down and enjoy a taste of British culture and a refined experience.
Afternoon Tea is served in our beautiful Hyde Park Room and is $32.50 per person. It includes tea sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, jams and curds, cakes and petit fours, and high grade loose leaf tea. Teas are served on fine china and tablecloths with florals from our in house florist.
Afternoon tea is by reservation only.

What our past customers had to say:
We hosted our bridal shower at The London Tea Room Hyde Park Room in June. It was an experience that my daughter and our guests will always remember. The service was excellent, the tables were beautiful, and the whole experience was elegant and sophisticated. I am from San Francisco so I trusted that the details would be attended to, and we were well taken care of. I highly recommend it. -Carol H.
My sisters and I meet here bi monthly for afternoon tea. It's a lovely affair and conversation is always amazing. Everything they serve is delicious and the tea is the best I've had anywhere. The service is always fantastic and we leave feeling refreshed and very full and happy! - Angela T.
