The Den, St Martins Lane’s take on the classic gentleman’s lounge. It's the perfect place to enjoy afternoon tea, curl up with a book, play a game of backgammon or catch up with friends over a Gin & Tonic.

An ideal meeting place in the heart of Covent Garden, The Den’s laid back atmosphere is complemented by comfortable leather sofas and warm lighting. A series of surreal and playful art pieces riffed on classic British scenarios also adorn the walls, bringing the room to life with a touch of British eccentricity.

A new afternoon tea menu has recently been introduced, with fresh savoury bites including Poppy Seed & Pumpkin Choux, Sundried Tomato Focaccia and Honey Roast Ham & Somerset Cheddar Baked Brioche, followed by an abundance of sweet treats such as Mixed Berry Tarts with Vanilla Mousseline Cream, Coconut Macaroons and Greek Yoghurt Mousse Verrine with Passion Fruit & Guava Sauce. Classic warm scones with clotted cream and jam are also served alongside. Available daily, the afternoon tea comes with a large selection of English breakfast and fruit teas for £25 per person, add a Gin & Tonic for £35 per person or a glass of champagne for £37.50 per person.

For those in the mood for something stronger, the bar team has created a special Gin & Tonic menu, inspired by the off-kilter artwork on the walls with each drink reflecting an element of the portraits.

Recently winning two D&AD awards in Brand Expression and Graphic Design categories, The Den’s artwork creates an engaging talking point for guests, whilst its relaxing setting and all-day menu of savoury bites, teas and coffee make it the perfect central London spot for a quick catch up or cosy space to unwind.

The Den at St Martin's Lane - London Afternoon Tea Review

Back in the 90s St Martin’s Lane was the place to be seen, its swivel doors leading through a lobby of golden molar chairs and onto Asia de Cuba - the ultimate girl-about-town’s hangout. But this is 2016 and times have changed, which is...
