Regarded as the heart of the hotel, the Thames Foyer in London is a stunning glass domed atrium, radiating natural light and sociable warmth. An impressive gazebo takes centre stage from which a pianist plays during the day and more lively bands entertain at night. The Thames Foyer restaurant is the spot where guests have been coming to enjoy The Savoy’s famous Afternoon Tea each afternoon for over a century, and where the concept of a dinner dance was very first born.
Tradition reigns over Afternoon Tea with the service style honouring this enduring custom that dates back to 1840. An extensive range of over 30 teas are accompanied by twists on classic sandwiches, homemade scones with clotted cream, jam and lemon curd, and the talented pastry team’s selection of pastries, each one a tempting work of art.
Little guests can also enjoy Afternoon Tea at The Savoy. We have partnered with HarperCollins Children’s Books to launch The Tiger Who Came to Tea at The Savoy, a unique children’s Afternoon Tea that celebrates the 50th anniversary of Judith Kerr’s treasured classic.
The Thames Foyer is also the perfect setting in which to enjoy the Savoy Breakfast, and coffee or light lunches. And as day turns to night the ambiance shifts and the Thames Foyer becomes a more sultry and intimate setting for dinner or evening drinks accompanied by the very best live music in town.
