Overview

Overlooking Buckingham Palace, The Rubens brings royalty right to your table! Since Queen Victoria became hooked on the oh so satisfying afternoon tea it has been a quintessential British tradition, an experience that exudes class and sophistication. Where better to experience this traditional treat than the opulent palace lounge? It even was awarded the Commended Awards of Excellence at the Afternoon Tea Awards 2018! You'll feel like part of the Royal Family as you tuck into a delicious selection of treats inspired by the sweet favourites of Queen Elizabeth, Prince William, and Prince Harry. From Her Majesty's much loved jam pennies to the Prince's love of chocolate biscuits, as well as red velvet cake, and aromatic teas such as Darjeeling and Earl Grey - this experience is fit for a Queen!

Another lovely afternoon tea at The Rubens at the Palace
13 November 2019
Lovely, friendly, helpful staff. Great location (near Buckingham Palace, obviously! and also near Victoria Railway Station and other transport links). Really generous afternoon tea - sandwiches, choice of teas, beautiful cakes and then scones, jam and cream - we just couldn't manage it all, so they kindly packed up what was left of our cakes and scones, in a delightful box, for us to take and enjoy at home. Really appreciated the background live guitar music/singing.

Not the best afternoon tea!
22 July 2019
We booked for a late afternoon tea, upon arrival we were sat in front of the window facing every person who passed, including full open top busses, whereby hundreds of people waved at us.. no privacy at all. The sandwich collection was extremely poor. However, the cake collection looked nice, but having a bit allergy- both plates were too close to each other. So I personally did not eat any. After being served. We could not get the attention of any member of staff. We go for afternoon tea 2/3 per month to various places. Sadly this was not a particularly good experience. No reflection on buy a gift just the venue. Rubens was a big disappointment.

A truly special treat

The service was second to none. The staff were attentive but also allowed us to exceed our allotted time slot and so we were left to enjoy the delicious cakes and sandwiches and also take home extras!

Afternoon tea here was amazing. I am vegetarian and was given a separate veggie menu, they also had a vegan menu too. Great choice of sandwiches and so tasty. The warm scones and cakes were delicious! The staff were superb and very attentive to our needs. Great location with it only being a few minutes walk from Victoria. Would thoroughly recommend!

Fabulous

Lovely afternoon tea on our way home. Fresh sandwiches and although they made note I don't eat white bread, they didn't offer the fillings on brown or granary so I had mostly the same fillings. After requesting something else on brown they were able to accommodate my request. Fresh scones with clotted cream(never enough but if you can get the waiting staffs attention they will bring you more). It's my 2nd afternoon tea at Rubens and I must say I did prefer the previous one, only because of the cake selection I felt wasn't as good but that's my taste. Would I go again yes. Would I recommend it yes.
