Bistro Restaurant at St James CourtClub At St. James Court, 54 Buckingham Gate, Westminster, SW1E 6AF

Indulge in one of the most iconic London experiences - a traditional English Afternoon Tea, served in theatrical elegance, just minutes away from Buckingham Palace.

Savour classics such as Scottish salmon, dill cream cheese and caviar on toasted brioche; rosemary-scented tenderloin minced pie; honey-roasted chicken salad, watercress and piccalilli on sundried tomato bread and the ever-so-popular cucumber, oak smoked cheddar and tomato chutney on beetroot bread.

The sweet temptations include chocolate and vanilla Battenberg cake; raspberry Bakewell tart; Victorian Red Velvet pastry; honeycomb and custard roulade alongside the traditional scones with Devonshire clotted cream and strawberry jam.

The tea is served in carefully selected fine bone china sets from the Wedgwood's Tea Garden Lemon & Ginger collection, featuring a beautifully bold lemon coloured backdrop adorned with delicate florals and gold accents - the perfect imitation of the lemon-and-ginger tea flavour.

The classic Afternoon Tea is served in Bistro restaurant every day between 13:30 and 17:00 hrs. Vegetarian version is also available upon request.
