About The English Tea Room

Queen Victoria loved to take tea at Brown’s. Today, our hotel is still the place to come for the definitive Afternoon Tea in London.


For a slice of traditional London life, enjoy the fabled Brown’s Afternoon Tea in our award-winning English Tea Room. Take your pick from over 17 teas — including Brown’s own blend — and a selection of sandwiches, scones, cakes and pastries. The surroundings are a perfect blend of old and new. Original wood panelling and antique fireplaces sit comfortably with Paul Smith floor lamps and contemporary artwork.
