Afternoon Tea
Afternoon Tea at Corinthia London offers one of life’s great luxuries. Illuminated by a spectacular Baccarat Chandelier and accompanied by uplifting melodies from a Steinway Piano, The Crystal Moon Lounge provides an idyllic atmosphere for a sumptuous afternoon treat.

Designed to showcase individual elements of a tea ceremony and with every aspect of a guest's experience considered, our expert Tea Master weighs and infuses bespoke tea blends for the perfect cup of tea. Delight in this wonderful interactive experience, with cakes and indulgent patisseries served from our heritage trolley on a bespoke line of Richard Brendon bone china. For a touch of elegance, enjoy a glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne in Baccarat Mille Nuits champagne flutes with a nod to the breath-taking Baccarat crystal chandelier overhead.

    A stunning afternoon tea. The ambiance (decorated for the festive season) was absolutely beautiful, the food exceptional, the sandwiches and pastries explained to us, all dietary needs catered for but what made our afternoon fabulous was the service! Well done Corinthia your staff were exceptional, welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly just lovely. We will be back.

    The food at the corinthia was really delicious. Everything was very fresh, flavoursome and beautifully presented. The only downside we noticed is that some of the furniture was not in the best condition and for paying £200 plus for an afternoon tea for two we expected everything to be looking polished and kept up with. The staff were very nice and efficient but I think the room and setting mean we probably would not go back, but we did enjoy it for the time we were there!

    Booked this for our wedding anniversary. A warm welcome from the moment we arrived and were offered a choice of tables from which we could hear the pianist in the background. Fantastic interaction and personal attention throughout from the staff, great home prepared food starting with lovely sandwiches, moving on to freshly made scones and then cake. A couple of little extras knowing it was a special occasion for us. Completely relaxed at all times, with no attempt to rush us. Very handy for Embankment Pier and Underground, as well as Whitehall Gardens.

    Beautiful hotel and beautiful setting for afternoon tea. The sandwiches were tasty, the scones and cakes were good and if you like a sweeter tea, the honey orchid tea (which our server recommended after I told her that I didn't want the English Breakfast Tea) was wonderful. A must-do afternoon tea experience that took almost 2 hours.

    Thank you, Corinthia, for being prompt and responsive with your email communication! I had tried a few of the other "name brand" teatime services in London, and this was a far better experience. Beautiful, serene setting, and comfy chairs made for a great start. Our server was sweet, polite, and attentive. She refilled any favorites we asked for. Sandwiches, scones, and desserts were all yummy! Money well spent!

    Their customer service is truly a 5 star hotel quality. The tea room is quiet and you’ll hear a pianist play music. The presentation of the tea, scones, sweets and sandwiches are very very classy. It’s definitely worth the money to experience the English afternoon tea time at Corinthia. I went there as a one-time experience, but I’m actually open to going back the next time I travel to London.

The assistant manager who took care of us was explaining us every detail of the tradition. There is so much to eat that we had to take some food at home. A very beautiful evening.
