    Science Tea

    Enjoy our award winning
    Science Tea with Champagne
    in The Drawing Rooms.

    At The Ampersand, you can join us on a journey of discovery through an award-winning combination of teas, dishes and sweet treats, where physics and chemistry meet in a curious alchemy to create an out-of-this-world dining experience. With our Science Afternoon Tea, you will taste the limits of culinary ingenuity, sampling jellies served in petri dishes, chocolate spacemen and not-so-ancient edible fossils, bound together in innovative combinations of flavour and texture. You’ll leave feeling one step closer to the stars, and as full as a T-rex after a dinner of Triceratops.

    This one-of-a-kind Science Afternoon Tea was conceived as a complement to one of the giants of the South Kensington community — the Science Museum — an interactive haven of rare objects, incredible stories of scientific achievement, and ultimately, a testament to mankind’s limitless ingenuity.

    We are proud to have won the Best Themed Afternoon Tea category at the Afternoon Tea Awards 2018.

    We have recently launched our Kid's Sci-Fi Tea, a playful version suitable for younger, budding scientists. Available during regular Science Afternoon Tea opening hours. 

    For a grown up twist on The Hotel’s Famous Science Afternoon Tea why not indulge yourself with our newly launched "Teapot Tales". See our Teapot Tales here.

    Science Afternoon Tea is served Monday to Saturday 12.30 – 9pm and Sunday 12.30 – 7pm

    Ampersand hotel's new
    Science Teapot Tales Menu.

    At the heart of The Ampersand Hotel is The Drawing Rooms, a light and airy patisserie lounge with deep sofas and studded velvet armchairs in scarlet and kingfisher blues. The space has become a favourite among guests and locals alike for its pretty pastries, exceptional teas, and freshly-pressed coffees.

    Now, The Drawing Rooms has expanded its offering by launching a tipsy Science Teapot Tales menu served from Monday to Saturday 12.30pm-9pm and Sunday 12.30pm-7pm.

    SCIENCE TEAPOT TALES

    A grown-up twist on The Ampersand Hotel’s famous Science Afternoon Tea, the menu is inspired by the neighbouring Natural History and Science Museums.

    A cocktail flight including Darwin’s Draught – a refreshing mix of Lalani & Co Earl Grey infused Chase vodka, Kamm & Sons, cucumber, apple and ginger – and Marie Cure-All – Lalani & Co Premium Genmaicha infused rum with Aperol, Antica Formula & Amer Picon – will be served alongside perennial afternoon tea favourites.

    Dishes include a delicious selection of seasonal sandwiches including chicken with tarragon and brioche with roast beef, truffle and mushroom tart, and cheddar and thyme scones with truffle butter. Guests can also enjoy expertly-crafted patisserie including caramel passion fruit planet mousse, dust for mini dinosaur biscuit ‘fossils’ hidden beneath chocolate soil, and be transported with orange and lemon half-moon cake and milk chocolate spacemen.
