The Drawing Rooms

Following the introduction of tier 4 restrictions from the UK Government we have temporarily closed our doors until further notice.

Enjoy our award-winning Science Afternoon tea in the comfort of our ‘salon de thé’.

Part English drawing room, part ‘salon de thé’, this is the place to enjoy pretty pastries, exceptional teas and freshly pressed coffees in South Kensington.

It is here that we serve our one-of-a-kind Science Afternoon Tea, completely unique to The Ampersand. Having won Best Themed Afternoon Tea at the Afternoon Tea Awards 2018, it is gaining huge popularity in London now. You can expect a mix of exciting and curious dishes, from jellies served in petri dishes, to chocolate spacemen and dinosaur biscuits.

Alongside our Afternoon Tea, we also serve all-day light bites, which makes us popular with our Kensington neighbours, as well as those who want a meeting in a quiet corner of our discrete London address. The feeling is both intimate and buzzing, with sunshine pouring in through the large Victorian windows.
