Tea at the Royal Opera House will be paused from mid-December 2015, due to work on our Open Up project. We will share details of new dates when we have them.

Tea at the Royal Opera House is your opportunity to enjoy a sophisticated Afternoon Tea in the beautiful surroundings of the Paul Hamlyn Hall. We mark this delightful occasion with specially commissioned screens featuring exotic birds, plants and flowers in Fauvist style, inspired by Covent Garden’s historic flower market.

The menu begins with brioche, sandwiches and freshly baked scones accompanied by a changing roster of homemade seasonal fruit jams. There follows a fabulous range of cakes and pastries combining the finest British ingredients with sumptuous recipes and elegant presentation.

Naturally, Tea at the Royal Opera House offers guests a wide range of loose leaf teas, tisanes, tea-themed cocktails and Champagne from Ruinart. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free and dairy-free menus are also available.
