Afternoon Tea at The Promenade

Celebrating the day with tea and extraordinary cakes, in one of Mayfair’s most beautiful rooms, is an experience that’s hard to leave and even harder to forget. Undeniably British and impeccably stylish, taking tea at The Dorchester is the ultimate expression of a day well spent in London.

One of life's finest pleasures

Here, amongst these splendid surroundings, the British love affair with ‘a cup of tea’ is celebrated in a ceremony full of style, surprise and a tremendous amount of cake. Rather than breaking with tradition, at The Dorchester we’ve reinvented it – with a new twist on our famous afternoon tea that captures an afternoon of sheer delight in a setting of blissful elegance.
