Afternoon Tea
The Grill Room - a favourite of Oscar Wilde - this namesake salon is a decadent experience.

Held exclusively within this Grade II listed room, an afternoon tea experience at Hotel Café Royal is truly unique. As gilded features decorate the mirrored room and artistic ceilings, delightful delicacies, sumptuous sweets, and overflowing Champagne and teas make the entire service one to remember. Plus, with live piano and an intimate setting, you will find yourself transported to a time gone by, one where patrons of old waltzed through the halls of this hallowed building.

Festive afternoon tea is £70 per person or £80 per person with a glass of N.V. Veuve Clicquot Brut

Gluten free, vegan & halal options available.
Please note the theme of the afternoon tea is subject to change.
The returning time for each table is two hours. Max group size is 6 people.

    This was the most wonderful tea experience to date. It was stunning and the food was delicious. The staff were circulating quite nicely, not coming over too often, just when you needed it. They were kind and engaging. Definitely book your tea here. It is elegance, beauty, and history combined.

    Cafe Royal was elegant and exquisite. Service staff was amazing, could not have been more attentive to detail. Price was on the high end, but the restaurant, food, and staff reflected pricing.

    I live this place. Been here before and it never disappoints. It is the best afternoon I’ve ever been to and I’ve done quite a few.

    Great sandwiches, cakes and exceptional service. The decor was very over the top but this was not in a bad way. It added to the atmosphere and occasion. However I would not recommend for the following reasons. The seats were very low (like primary school seating) , with very low tables. As a tall man this made the seating extremely uncomfortable. Also all the teas were very weak and all tasted exactly the same.

    Excellent High Tea. The seating can be a bit uncomfortable if you have any mobility issues.

    What an amazing afternoon. We went for a friend's 60th birthday, for afternoon tea. It really was special. A beautiful lounge, with a lovely ambience. The service and food was faultless. I would recommend everyone to try this.

    The most wonderful afternoon tea in the most beautiful room I have ever seen. The food was a real treat, and I loved my choice ofJasmine Pearls tea. Our waitress was lovely- really helpful. This treat was booked as a retirement treat and it was absolutely wonderful- worth every penny.

    All staff provided outstanding welcome and waiting service. The pianist was wonderful; he created exactly the right ambiance. I enjoyed most of the food. The pumpkin bread/sandwich filling wasn’t to my taste and neither were two of the little cakes but this is a personal choice; the quality was excellent it was just that they weren’t for me. The address not point where I think improvement could be made is in the seating. The chair was too low so I had to lean forward which squashed my tummy and I had back ache by the end of the meal.
