Science Afternoon Tea

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

    Private Science Afternoon Teas

    If you are looking for a unique way to celebrate a birthday or special occasion, our Private Science Afternoon Tea is an original and fun choice.

    This one-of-a-kind experience, unique to The Ampersand, was inspired by the Science Museum, and won Best Themed Afternoon Tea at the Afternoon Tea Awards 2018. You can expect a mix of exciting and curious dishes, from jams served in petri dishes, to chocolate spacemen and dinosaur biscuits, finished with tea, coffee, or Champagne.

    All private Afternoon Tea bookings get complimentary hire of either our Library or Games Room at the weekend. We accommodate groups of all kinds, from wedding parties and Christenings, to baby showers and hen dos. 

    Please note: We require a minimum of 10 people for private bookings. Prices start from £39.50, or £49.50 per person with a glass of Champagne (or two non-alcoholic cocktails instead of Champagne). 

    You can also opt for our new, exiting Science Teapot Tales; a grown-up twist on our traditional Science Afternoon Tea, including a cocktail flight with three tea-infused cocktail samplers. From £49.50 per person.

    An additional charge of 12.5% discretionary service will be added to the bill.

    For Hen Parties and Baby Showers, we also design themed cakes, if you’re looking for something original!
