My husband booked for my birthday treat and we had lunch in the restaurant. The service was amazing but I must say that the food was very average for the price. I had smoked salmon and although the salmon was of very good quality, there was nothing else on the plate apart from a huge dollop of plain cream cheese... More

We had afternoon tea here to celebrate my wife's birthday. The sandwiches were delicious as were the scones and pastries. The strawberry preserve and clotted cream were fantastic (as was the lemon curd) on the scones. We chose the Savoy Afternoon Tea blend which was amazing! So nice I even purchased some from their Tea Shop and found the price... More

We enjoyed afternoon tea here with the family. I emailed before our visit to say we were celebrating and could we have a nice table which we think we were given. My mum was also pleased to have a copy of the menu to take away. Sandwiches, scones and pastries were all tasty. The bread was really moist and not... More

We visited as a late Valentines celebration and it was our second time at The Savoy. The service was prompt and efficient but not intrusive. The selection of sandwiches were good and the scones were to die for, also a great choice of blended teas and coffees. The only one negative remark would be people not sticking to the dress... More

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
