Erected on the site of the Queen's former childhood home – which was blitzed during World War II – Wellington Lounge specialises in a right royal afternoon tea.
There are two options to choose from: guiltless afternoon tea and royal tea. The former is free from refined sugar and heavy on nutrients, including pistachio and Greek yoghurt trifle cake, wholemeal scones with crème fraîche and winter berry compote, and seasonal vegetable sarnies. The latter features British classics, such as coronation chicken sandwiches, sultana and buttermilk scones, and something dubbed ‘The Queen’s Hat’, which is a vanilla sponge soaked in Pimm’s.
Wellington Lounge can cater to many dietary requirements if you inform them before booking. Teas start from £32 per head and are served 1-5pm daily.
The Wellington Lounge serves a collection of world cuisine, showcased through its all day tasters sharing menu. The Park Lane Hotel's afternoon tea programme has also been expertly crafted, featuring bespoke tea combinations. Diners can enjoy exotic infusions blended with everything from jasmine silver needles to the world exclusive creation of Madagascan vanilla pods combined with marigolds.
With an additional champagne afternoon tea option, a seasonal menu is also offered to showcase the best in British ingredients, ranging from steamed Devon red chicken to west coast Scottish lobster. Traditional English desserts like scones with Devonshire clotted cream are also a must.
With stunning views taking in Buckingham Palace and Big Ben, the Wellington Lounge is a time capsule of British sophistication and elegance in Mayfair.
