What better way to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee than with a special Afternoon Tea at The Rubens at The Palace? The Rubens at The Palace is the closest hotel to Buckingham Palace and the perfect place to enjoy this very British tradition.

The pastry kitchen at The Rubens is led by their talented pastry chef Sarah Houghting, who has crafted the The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea menu, inspired by food the Queen is known to love.

Highlights from this special menu include Coronation Chicken Sausage Roll, Lobster & King’s Caviar on Brioche Roll, Gin & Dubonnet Frozen Ice and Ruben's signature cake, 'The Crown', made with a white chocolate & coconut mousse and orange chocolate brownie.

The teas are supplied by PMD Teas: P.M. DAVID SILVA & SONS was established in 1945 during the Plantation Raj in Ceylon's world-famous Dimbula Valley, and they have developed a reputation for serving the world's most sought-after teas that are hand plucked and ethically sourced. 

The Rubens at the Palace lies at the heart of London's biggest tourist attractions and is the closest hotel to Buckingham Palace, within easy walking distance of Victoria Station and some of London's best shops and restaurants.
