    Mood? The prestigious Chancery Court has real wow factor with its marble floors and statuesque pillars, however, The Lounge itself is a little more laidback with comfy sofas and plush rugs.

    Why go? Just ten minutes from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, The Lounge is the perfect place to refuel during a heavy day of shopping. Alternatively, if you’re at the hotel to check out the award-winning spa, make sure you leave time for post-massage afternoon tea.

    To eat? The ‘Pretty Little Bites of Heaven’ cupcake menu costs £9.50* per person, and includes three beautifully designed cupcakes along with tea or coffee. Befitting such a lavish setting, the cupcake flavours change with the fashion seasons; for spring/summer you can enjoy lemon and raspberry, chocolate and marshmallow and cream cheese-frosted carrot cake.

    Need to know? Chancery Court’s cupcake selection was created by its executive pastry chef, Mark Perkins.
