About The Orchid Lounge at Pan Pacific London

The Orchid Lounge is a sophisticated afternoon tea lounge, one of three dining establishments found within the glamorous City of London hotel, the Pan Pacific (the venue also houses the Straits Kitchen restaurant and Ginger Lily bar).

The Orchid Lounge is a warm and inviting space overlooking the Plaza, which features a neutral brown and beige colour palette alongside cosy tub chairs, bookshelves lined with curious trinkets and floating fireplaces. The afternoon tea lounge is overseen by executive pastry chef Cherish Finden, who pairs Asian flavours with the traditional British custom of afternoon tea, to present the Singaporean-inspired Kopi Tiam, which features bao, dim sum and choux.

Afternoon tea is served daily between the hours of 1.30pm and 5.50pm, with guests following the typical format of savouries followed by sweets. To begin your experience, you can tuck into savoury delights such as soy and ginger marinated salmon boa and a mini dim sum basket to share between the table. Next up, you will be treated to an assortment of Asian-style desserts and freshly-baked pastries - think Peranakan pineapple tart (buttery pastry with pandan pineapple jam) and a moist spice cake known as Kueh Lapis, as well as Gula Malaka brownies and Coffee Tarik (a blend of coffee, mascarpone and Kahlua).

Pan Pacific London’s afternoon tea is accompanied by a range of fine teas from the Rare Tea Company, introduced by a tea connoisseur and including a bespoke blend which has been specially crafted in collaboration with Cherish Finden and Henrietta Lovell, known as the Tea Lady. As part of the hotel’s commitment to supporting local, British producers, The Orchid Lounge offers British sparkling wine as its preferred pairing over Champagne. The list includes varieties from big name vineyards such as Rathfinny and Nyetimber, as well as more artisanal choices such as Breaky Bottom.
