Set in a quintessentially stately home environment with views overlooking Hyde Park, The Park Room and Library offer guests a varied menu for all tastes. Whether you want a place to relax, unwind and enjoy a cocktail or you are looking for somewhere to experience the traditional British institution that is afternoon tea. The Park Room and Library at Grosvenor House is the perfect setting.
Anna’s Afternoon Tea is the true hero, fusing in perfect harmony the history and heritage of Grosvenor House with this much-loved British tradition. ‘Anna’, is understood to be responsible for the custom of Afternoon Tea, as dining late in the evening would leave Anna hungry and needing sustenance in the afternoon.
Complaining of ‘having that sinking feeling’ Anna would succumb to hunger and order tea, bread and cakes to her room. Hereafter, Anna’s tea became somewhat of a ritual and the afternoon tea was born.
