Traditional afternoon tea at The Dorchester is elegantly appointed with sittings available in the mornings and even early evenings as opposed to the traditional limitations of a mid afternoon tea. Guests choose from a wide variety of teas and or coffee beverages while pairing their selection with freshly baked scones, sandwiches, and artfully crafted pastries. Traditional tea is priced from £45 per person.

Spring Afternoon Tea

New for spring is a selection of finger sandwiches and pastries with the season in mind. Menu selections include a Norfolk chicken, tarragon mayonnaise and watercress on onion bread. Another sandwich selection is the Persian baby cucumber, mint and lemon balm on brown bread.

For your pre-dessert tasting, warm raisin and plain scones are served with homemade strawberry jam, The Dorchester Rose jam and Cornish clotted cream. What follows is a selection of pastries including the Rhubarb and raspberry tea cake, and Bergamot and dark chocolate gateaux.

American-style Afternoon Tea

If you wish to indulge in a little taste of the USA, visit for a selection of delights like Wagyu beef sliders with shallot marmalade, and mac & cheese with black truffles created exclusively by their executive chef, David McIntyre. Sweet treats are ones like the super-cute miniature Banoffee Milkshake, Peanut Butter & Jelly Twinkie, and Mississippi Mud Pie (£55 per person).
