Welcome to The Den, a
classically British, oak-panelled snug at St Martins Lane. It's the perfect
place to enjoy afternoon tea, curl up with a book, play a game of backgammon or
catch up with friends over a Gin & Tonic.
An ideal meeting place in the
heart of Covent Garden, The Den’s laid back atmosphere is complemented by
comfortable leather sofas and warm lighting. A series of surreal and playful
art pieces riffed on classic British scenarios also adorn the walls, bringing
the room to life with a touch of British eccentricity.
The Den afternoon tea menu features
fresh savoury bites including caraway roll with chicken, tarragon, lime, sun-dried
tomatoes and olive and chilli bread with smoked salmon and salsa verde followed
by an abundance of sweet treats such as Ludovic’s éclair with milk chocolate
and hazelnut mousse and roasted banana and yuzu tart. Classic warm scones with
clotted cream and jam are also served alongside a large selection of English breakfast and fruit teas. Afternoon Tea is served daily and is priced from £29.50 per person.
For those in the mood for
something stronger, the bar team has created a special Gin & Tonic menu,
inspired by the off-kilter artwork on the walls with each drink reflecting an
element of the portraits.
Recently winning two D&AD
awards in Brand Expression and Graphic Design categories, The Den’s artwork
creates an engaging talking point for guests, whilst its relaxing setting and
all-day menu of savoury bites, teas and coffee make it the perfect central
London spot for a quick catch up or cosy space to unwind.
