Afternoon Tea at the Restaurant at St Paul'sRecently opened, The Restaurant at St Paul’s is a unique place to enjoy lunch or afternoon tea. Unlike some other crypt restaurants, the 48-cover space has a fresh feel, and with neighbours including the Duke of Wellington and Admiral Nelson you’ll have go a long way to find a more historic setting than St Paul’s Cathedral.

We were lucky enough to sample the sumptuous lunch menu which features new takes on traditional British fare using carefully sourced, seasonal ingredients. Highlights included asparagus with a poached Gressingham duck egg, roast grey mullet and a delectable gingerbread sandwich dessert with ice cream made from Regent’s Park Honey – yum!

With 2 courses for £16 or three for £20, restaurant owners Harbour & Jones are expecting the restaurant to be booked out in advance so it’s worth reserving a table if you fancy trying it for yourself. Alternatively, Harbour & Jones have also taken over the running of the café in the crypt and transformed the menu there as well.
