Afternoon Tea - Lily Vanilli

Afternoon Tea


We’re inviting you to be our guest at the most exciting Afternoon Tea in the city. Inspired by the decadence and splendour of the Regency era, Tea at The Lane by Lily Vanilli is served daily at Theatre Royal Drury Lane

“I wanted to design a tea that’s playful, fun and laden with things you actually want to eat. These are modern, delicious desserts, and we’re hosting you in decadent style at the most glamorous venue in London.”

Expect towering cakes, glittering chandeliers, flowing champagne, a fabulous terrace and the most stunning interiors.

Book in to enjoy our fluffy vanilla cake, filled with zingy passionfruit, with piping inspired by the venue and topped with our signature handmade golden cherub.

Followed by our famous sticky toffee pudding, filled with poured custard and drenched in salted caramel, topped with light crunchy, crisp salt caramel popcorn.

Finally, drawing on the regency era’s love of experimental ice cream – we have collaborated with our good friends at Happy Endings on a delicious ice cream sandwich for summer – layered with brown sugar biscuit, strawberry parfait, vanilla marshmallow and 70% dark chocolate.

You can also pre-order decadent whole celebration cakes made by Lily to take home with you.

The savoury bites on the menu include madeleines topped with whipped English feta and pickled heritage carrot, Coronation chicken pie with caramelised onion chutney and a bite-sized crumpet with John Ross Jr smoked salmon and Earl Grey-infused cream cheese.

And as ever, our now famous fluffy scones will be brought to the table with cream and homemade jam, while you sip on Rare Tea Company teas and Taittinger champagne.

Book today or treat a loved one to an afternoon tea gift voucher.

See you in the Grand Saloon!

As seen in

“There can be few afternoon teas in the world right now more hedonistic than the one served here.”

Financial Times

“With high-camp hedonism, Lily is breathing new life into the centuries-old tradition of high tea.”

“This is high tea for the modern eater.”
