Afternoon Tea at The Ritz

One of the Most Iconic Experiences in the World

Indulge in a slice of the finest British tea tradition and a champagne celebration with our Afternoon Tea experiences at The Ritz London.

Whilst dining at The Ritz, savour a selection of finely cut sandwiches, freshly baked scones with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry preserve, and a mouth-watering range of exquisitely presented pastries and teacakes, replenished on request.

As well as 18 different types of loose-leaf tea to choose from, why not sip a glass of Champagne to add some extra sparkle to the occasion.

This most charming English Afternoon Tea in Mayfair is served in the spectacular surroundings of the hotel’s former Ballroom located in The Ritz Club, on the lower ground floor of the hotel.   For the first time in over a century, you can dine in this wonderful venue for a limited time.

The Ritz London is the only hotel in the UK to have a certified Tea Master, Giandomenico Scanu, who travels around the world to various tea plantations to source our wonderful teas.

Why not try our exclusive Ritz Royal Blend Tea? This is only available at The Ritz.

Children’s Afternoon Tea
Afternoon Tea at The Ritz is a timeless experience for families to enjoy together. Priced at £45 (£48 from 1st January 2023), our Children’s Afternoon Tea menu features the same quintessentially English finger sandwiches, scones, and pastries as our traditional menu, perfectly portioned for dainty fingers. Our Tea Master has chosen the perfect specially blended decaffeinated tea, so those little ones can partake in the same ritual as their parents. This famously British Afternoon Tea experience is sure to be the start of a new family tradition for decades to come.

Kindly note our Afternoon Tea dress code does not apply to children under the age of 16.

Music to match the occasion
The elegant ambiance is complemented by a musical ensemble from our resident pianist and carol singers – the final ingredient to ensure your Afternoon Tea at The Ritz is, quite simply, unforgettable.

Afternoon Tea is served daily at 11.30am, 1.30pm, 3.30pm, 5.30pm, and 7.30pm.
