Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea

When we visited the tea house, we enjoyed the environment and how lively the place was. The restaurant has a cozy essence, and the outdoor seating arrangement is also comfortable.

Even though we liked the indoor space with great lighting, interior design, etc., we sat outside and enjoyed London’s great view and weather. Also, the seating arrangement suits multiple people, so just bring your group and enjoy a great time. 

Regarding the food, Mad Hatters is mainly famous for afternoon tea beverages, cocktails, desserts, etc. Because of this, this tea house also offers a huge variety of vegan dishes and beverages. This place is specifically for afternoon tea or evening snacks, so customers won’t find it severely crowded.

Cutter & Squidge

Here is another affordable afternoon tea destination perfect for a casual outing. The place’s interior is pretty cozy but designed sophistically with modern decor. The ambiance is very adorable; however, it’s better for small groups of around 2 to 4. The cafe is a bit compact, so it would be difficult for customers to adjust.

Now, to discuss the vegan afternoon tea at Cutter and Squidge, we must mention that other customers really enjoyed it and rated it 5 stars. But after trying some dishes and afternoon tea, we can say that the food quality of this place is great and delicious.

So if you are a vegan, you should try the vegan afternoon tea at Cutter and Squidge, as it’s one of the best in London.

​​​Afternoon Tea at the Rubens

While searching for the best afternoon tea destination in London, we asked many locals about their experiences and preferred afternoon tea destinations. While doing the survey, we came across Afternoon tea at the Rubens, and people had mixed experiences about this tea house.

So, we decided to visit the place. After entering the tea house, we took our time to cherish the ambiance. The interior decoration of the tea house gives a traditional vintage vibe. Not only that, but the seating arrangement of the huge piano completes the place.

Then, we loved the food presentation and quality service the most. Rubens has a great variety of vegan dishes on their afternoon tea menu. However, the only part of the dish we didn’t like was that he felt the cake was slightly dry. Besides, everything about the vegan afternoon tea outing at Rubens was perfect. So, don’t hold back. Go and have an amazing afternoon tea experience.

Brigit’s Bakery & Afternoon Tea Bus Tours

Brigit’s Bakery is one of the best options for affordable, great-quality afternoon tea. What makes the experience even more incredible is the afternoon tea bus tour.

So, while enjoying an incredible range of vegan-friendly afternoon tea meals and beverages, you can also enjoy the view of London. However, as it’s a bus, it’s not suitable for a large group but is enough for 2 to 6 people. 

Brigit’s Bakery provides the best experience, and everyone must try it. Indeed, Brigit’s Bakery doesn’t have many vegan options. But at an affordable rate, it will be a fun day you can spend with your friends.

Afternoon Tea at The Savoy – Thames Foyer

If you want a fancy afternoon tea destination, afternoon tea at the Savoy can be a good choice. The tea house restaurant is designed very elegantly so that people will be dumbstruck. The interior of the tea house has beautiful traditional chandeliers, artwork, seating arrangements, lighting, etc.

Another thing we like about the decoration is that this place has slightly different aesthetic decorations at different places, so based on that, you can choose your preferred background for pictures.

After exploring the place, we found a place to sit and enjoy afternoon tea. The menu items were indeed pricey, but the presentation and quality of the food were worth it. If you have a tight budget, avoid this place. On the other hand, the food at this tea house is delicious, and vegans also have a variety of incredible dishes.

This traditional tea house is one of the most elegant afternoon tea destinations ever. This upscale tea house has one of the most incredible ambiance.

As a result, customers face challenges regarding seating arrangements. Also, while having afternoon tea, you will get the chance to enjoy live music performances.

While checking the menu, we noticed that, like other customers, The Harrods Tea House has various dish options for vegans. After that, we enjoyed the service, and the food quality was amazing. We were pretty stunned after seeing their presentation in every possible way. The traditional tea house so demonstrates its sophisticated ambiance.

The Dilly 

The Dilly restaurant is a traditional British-themed afternoon tea destination in London. Originally, the Dilly was a 5-star hotel in London; this restaurant is a famous part of it. Afternoon tea is a highly demanded service in the Dilly, so we visited for afternoon tea to learn more about this place.

After entering, the first thing we noticed is the huge dining premises. It was not only the restaurant’s ambiance that was all about sophistication and elegance.

At first, we thought the vegan afternoon tea might be very costly, but after placing the order, we noticed it was pretty affordable. They also have a separate, well-designed menu for vegan lovers. The food quality was good; we liked it very much.

However, the food portion is slightly less than expected, but it’s understandable based on the ambiance, pricing, etc. So, for a soothing afternoon tea plan, you can visit The Dilly.
