Courtroom Bar at The Dixon Hotel4 Queen Elizabeth Street, London, SE1 2LL

Indulge in a delicious Afternoon Tea in the quirky surroundings of the Courtroom Bar at London's boutique Dixon Hotel.

A Grade II-listed building with original Edwardian architecture, The Dixon is steeped in history but inspired by the contemporary character and culture of its vibrant neighbourhood.

Dating back to 1905, set inside the old Tower Bridge Magistrates Court, the Courtroom Bar is where criminals would have been sentenced for their crimes.  In this second to none experience, immerse yourself in the history of the venue under the grand chandelier and the original structure of the judge's bench, alongside the mugshot pictures of ex-convicts framed on the walls. 

This traditional Afternoon Tea starts with a selection of delicate handmade sandwiches on freshly baked bread followed by warm and crumbly plain and fruit scones served with clotted cream and strawberry preserve. The final course is a delicious assortment of seasonal French pastries and fancies.

The Dixon Hotel is just a short walk from Tower Bridge and within easy reach of many of the city's main attractions.
