Afternoon Tea


Afternoon Tea at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel is served in The Hansom. Being the unique afternoon tea venue of King’s Cross, enjoy an elegant afternoon tea in one of London’s most iconic settings.

Tradition with a twist. Steeped with historic stories, The King’s Cross area takes inspiration for the inventive Afternoon Tea offering.

The coming of railways into the area in the past made King’s Cross the hub for anything and everything – potatoes, furniture, tobacco and timber, most vital of these goods was coal. Victorian London was a city powered by coal, and Coal Drops Yard, the new shopping district in King’s Cross was its coal store. Inspired by this colourful history, we present our 62 % Dark Chocolate and Raspberry “Coal” Clusters.

In 1874 the first Pullman train in to the UK operated on the Midland Railway where groups of wealthy travellers embark on mystery tours, these train lines were crucial in transporting not only people but food and other materials. Many discoveries were found when excavating the goods yard near St. Pancras station back in 2011, including evidence of a large potato market and even a banana stall, which was found on old maps used for ripening and selling bananas. So we present our Banana & 53% Milk Chocolate Tart

Our Cherry Drop Bakewell Tart plays on the most famous Bakewell tart in Derbyshire. The light blue ironwork found in St. Pancras station was manufactured by the Butterley Iron Company, which was formed in 1790 as Benjamin Outram & Co to exploit the mineral resources of the Erewash Valley particularly the Butterley tunnel in Derbyshire

All sweet options are paired with traditional savouries and served with a wide tea selection.

Each Afternoon tea can be paired with Perrier Jouët Champagne.
