Afternoon Tea is served in the totally exquisite Grade II listed Oscar Wilde Lounge; dating back to 1865; and service is accompanied by a live pianist. It is the very room that Oscar Wilde fell in love with Lord Alfred Douglas, Aubrey Beardsley debated with Whistler, David Bowie retired Ziggy Stardust and Mick Jagger, the Beatles and Elizabeth Taylor danced the night away.
