The Den at St Martins Lane Review

The Den at St Martins Lane is featured in these Guides:

Top 10 things you need to know about The Den:

1)  Dining out in London isn't just about using your digestive powers but often intellectual might as well. Case in point: a visit for afternoon tea at The Den at St Martins Lane Hotel in the West End. With no significant signs, a visit to the concierge desk might be required to locate The Den.

2)  The blank canvas room resembles an art gallery. A picture of a cricket match includes a cracked glass screen and the match ball displayed on the other side of the room (nice touch!); whilst a birdcage painting includes an escaped canary high up on the wall.

3)  Their gin and tonic selection reflects classic British historical events, locations or even just the paintings on the wall - such as Nelson's Duty and WG Grace - using popular British gins like Sipsmith and Hendricks.

4)  Decisions, decisions. For afternoon tea, you need to think whether you want crisp, aromatic oriental teas like jasmine silver needle or jade sword green tea, or ever popular options like earl grey or English breakfast.

5)  Thankfully you can give your grey matter a rest with the champagne upgrade. There’s only one choice, thankfully: Perrier-Jouët. Prices are very reasonable for a top London hotel with the upgrade at £12.50 per person.

6)  The chefs have clearly given their menu some thought, as you aren’t offered bland cut sandwiches; instead you get a creamy tasting goat cheese sable along with healthy-tasting avocado purée and sun-dried tomato.

7)  Their sweet offerings will fuel your sugar addiction. You might struggle to remember whether you've eaten your fair share of éclair with crunchy praline and vanilla cream, chocolate meringue and Greek yoghurt mousse verrine. You might want to consider feigning memory loss to obtain extra portions.

8)  Scones will bring out that eternal debate: clotted cream or strawberry preserve first?

9)  Service is immaculate, as you would expect from such a smooth operating hotel. Ask the servers about the stories behind each picture in the room if you’re struggling to utilise your intelligence quotient.

10) With so many West End theatres and Covent Garden shops nearby, it would be the brainy choice to book an afternoon tea at The Den before you head off for some retail therapy and/or show-stopping entertainment.
