SquareMeal Review of Lobby Lounge at Crowne Plaza – The City (afternoon tea)

The Square Mile location, hard by Blackfriars station, keeps the Lobby Lounge at Crowne Plaza – The City ticking over quietly all day with a steady stream of business folk. The high-backed chairs provide handy concealment for guests needing some laptop time (the Wi-Fi is free) or those who are meeting clients hush-hush. Choose from a basic cream tea, a traditional afternoon spread at £14.50 or the full works with Champagne (£20). Everything arrives on a stand, so work your way through a parade of delights running from sandwiches (pastrami, ham and mustard, smoked salmon etc), via scones with Devon clotted cream and jam to a selection of pretty cakes, all washed down with freshly brewed loose-leaf tea of your choice.
