We had afternoon tea in the Lobby which was lovely. Very attentive waiting staff. Lovely food, could have more but the generous amount we were given was more than enough. We had a great time.

More about Grosvenor Arms

In a magnificent converted railway building, The Grosvenor Arms offers elegant European cuisine. Alongside a comprehensive selection from the glossy 1940's-style bar, a dainty afternoon tea selection is served.

Drawing influence from across the continent, The Brasserie menu offers casual sharing platters and simple classics, as well as refined main course flavours. Favourites include squash and goats cheese ravioli, whilst succulent steaks are sourced from Casterbridge’s finest grain-fed cattle. For dessert, a delectable selection includes Amalfi lemon tart with mascarpone, or rich pot au chocolat.

Offering a more laidback selection, The Grosvenor Arms serves a lunch menu of hearty signature sandwiches, burgers and colourful salads, as well as hand-crafted treats for afternoon tea. The international wine list offers some superb complementing bottles.

In the dining room at The Grosvenor ArmsLondon, muted colours are offset by a dotting of bright canvases. Victoria Rail Station is just 2 minutes’ walk away.

Location and setting superb.
Sandwiches lacked flavour
Scones needed clotted cream not butter!
Where was the strawberry jam?
Cakes and pastries were good
Choice of teas was limited - no decaf
Service excellent
Price for central London was good too

Absolutely lovely champagne afternoon tea. We were very well looked after and regularly offered more sandwiches and tea (but not champers!) highly recommend.

Nothing special, there was not a table made up when we got there and was told to sit anywhere. As this was a special occasion I was disappointed not to have been made a little bit more important.

Please see below for an email that I sent to the restaurant manager about my experience.

Dear Restaurant Manager,

I made a booking for my family to have afternoon tea at your restaurant( please see reservation below). We arrived at the restaurant at 155pm and the hostess informed us that we will be seated in the bar area of the restaurant. I noticed that no one was having afternoon tea in that area and it seemed out of place for a family with two young children. The chef made a special cupcake for the kids because of a nut allergy and the tea was lovely.

Upon leaving, it became very clear that afternoon tea was indeed being served to other patrons in the main restaurant area. As an African American family from the US, our separate seating had the appearance of a discriminatory action by the hostess and reflected poorly on your hotel. I did not raise my concern with the hostess because of a time constraint and the presence of the children.

I hope that you will take measures to ensure that another family doesn't have a similar distasteful experience or clearly state in the online reservation description that afternoon tea will be served in the rear bar area of the Grosvenor Arms restaurant.

The lounge was very pleasant and waiters attentive. I am a coeliac and we had to wait a while as they did not convey this request to the kitchen. However the afternoon tea was very nice.
