General information

Dress code: Although London forever strides ahead, elegance never goes out of style. So whilst there’s no strict rule book for our dress code, The Dorchester is very keen on the habit of dressing brilliantly. We kindly suggest no sportswear and wearing smart shorts only by day, not by night.

Guests: Children of all ages are welcome at The Promenade 

Vibe: Stylish setting

One of life's finest pleasures

Undeniably British and impeccably stylish, taking tea at The Dorchester is the ultimate expression of a day well spent in London.

Tradition, reinvented

Here, amongst splendid surroundings, the British love affair with tea is celebrated in a ceremony full of style, surprise and a tremendous amount of cake. Rather than breaking with tradition, The Dorchester reinvents it – with a new twist on our famous tea ritual that captures an afternoon of sheer delight.
