Great service. Very friendly and didn't feel rushed. Would have liked more/larger savory items on the plate. The dry ice made the tea eventful.

Located just minutes away from some of the best museums in in London, The Drawing Rooms is a cosy escape from the bustle of the city. Serving afternoon tea & all-day bites, this sun-lit venue is the heart of the luxurious Ampersand Hotel.

As well as all-day light bites, The Drawing Rooms afternoon tea menu includes coronation chicken & cheese tartine with fruit chutney, homemade scones with fruity jam and clotted cream, and a selection of pastries, such as the classic Victoria sponge & tangy lemon meringue tart.

With large Victorian windows allowing the place to bathe in light, The Drawing Rooms offer a quintessentially English environment to enjoy a selection of teas and rich coffees. Decked out with banquettes, deep sofas & studded armchairs in red velvet & kingfisher blues, it also provides a delicious vegetarian menu.

The Drawing Rooms in South Kensington is a 4-minute walk from the Natural History Museum, a 3-minute walk from the V&A Museum, and a 6-minute walk from the Science Museum. South Kensington Tube Station is just a minute’s walk away.

    Went here for afternoon tea. Food was fantastic, ambiance equally great. Majority of the staff were friendly and lovely, apart from one waitress. Our entire group of 8 saw her rolling her eyes at our requests on separate occasions. She brought us 6 of one item even though we had ordered 8. We waited 15 mins without saying anything, assuming she couldn't carry it all on one go, no problem. They didn't come so I requested them, and we got so much attitude from this waitress! Without even looking at what was on our table she started arguing that she'd brought the right things. I'm not sure what this lady's problem was, but it soured the whole event. We would happily come back, assuming we wouldn't have to deal with her again. I assume she was a new hire as when I went to pay the bill a more senior staff member (who was fantastic) was telling her what to press on the till to bring a bill up.

    Great afternoon tea experience and would really recommend it.
    There was a delay in getting the food and the staff were very hospitable to us as a result. Will go back again!

    Treated my husband for his birthday to an afternoon at the Science Museum and than after to have a "Science Tea" at the Drawing Rooms. Arrived 45 minutes early for the prearranged booking for tea which the staff said was no problem. However they served a pot of tea but we had to wait 45 minutes for the food to arrive. Guess it was only ready for the time we booked. Nice selection but a little over sweet for my taste. Kids would love it.

    Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. My friend is coeliac and needs to follow a strict gluten-free diet, so one of the lady staff went all the way to help by checking and ensuring that all ingredients were suitable for my friend's consumption. Another lady staff also helped us by changing a seat which was shaky. My friend and I were happy with the overall food standard, especially the scones. However, we thought lots of improvement (in terms of taste) would be needed for the sweets (we were rather disappointed with the top tier of our afternoon tea), chocolates (the chocolate arrow and biscuit in the wooden box), and perhaps the bread items (the lower tier, the fillings were really great - fresh salmon, nice sauces, fantastic egg mayonnaise, but the breads carrying them were rather dry). Nevertheless the tea was fine and we will love to try other things on the menu when there is a chance in near future.

    We had the science of love afternoon tea - food was great but we would prefer a better balance between savoury and sweets. Staff was nice and we felt welcome. Seats were just a little uncomfortable but in our overall experience was really good. Would definitely recommend.

    Fantastic service with very kind staff. The afternoon tea is surprisingly filling. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.

    The setting is lovely, well laid out and trendy decor making you feel at ease. They were aware of dietary issues and came to discuss this beforehand. Staff were obviously busy on the day we went which meant that our science afternoon tea for 7 had multiple items missing from each tray. It was difficult getting the staffs attention to rectify this and they did not have time to stay and check all the plates to ensure what was on them was the full menu. It took two or three attempts to get all the items on the menu to our table. Of the food that was brought, it was delicious and beautifully presented. What spoilt it was the 'optional' service charge at the end being automatically added to the bill. I discussed this with the waitress and explained I was happy to leave a tip but not of the amount added by the restaurant ( especially considering our experience). The waitress was very understanding of this but explained she would have to call someone more senior and it would be a lot of hassle to remove this service charge. As we were there as part of a family celebration I let it go. We had chosen this venue as one of our party had done the same science afternoon tea the year before, unfortunately she said it was nowhere near as good as her last experience.
