    The Drawing Rooms

    French finesse meets British style in The Drawing Rooms - the luxurious heart of The Ampersand Hotel serving light bites and Afternoon Tea in Kensington.

    Part English drawing room, part 'salon de thé', with deep sofas and studded armchairs in scarlet velvets and kingfisher blues, The Drawing Rooms is the place to enjoy pretty pastries, exceptional teas, freshly-pressed coffees and Afternoon Tea.

    All-day light bites also make us popular with residents of South Kensington, as well as those who want to get together for a business meeting in a quiet corner of a discreet address. The feel is intimate yet buzzy, with sunshine pouring in through the large Victorian windows.

    The Drawing Rooms at our Kensington boutique hotel are open from 9am until 11pm Monday to Sunday. Pastries and Cakes are also available for take away.

    Afternoon Tea is served from 2.30pm to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday (and Bank Holiday), and from 12.30pm to 5.30pm during weekends
