About Vintry & Mercer

We have three private rooms on the lower ground floor, each inflected with individual character and style, in a part of the hotel that is secluded and quiet.

Rooms include audio and visual equipment, mini-bar fridges, Nespresso machines, television screens, and high-speed internet.

Afternoon Tea
Our City of London Afternoon Tea is available for group bookings from 7 people and above. Honouring the historic trades, guilds and the great fire of London that started nearby, we have created a selection of pastries based on these themes, served alongside home-made scones and savouries. The City of London Afternoon Tea can be enjoyed on its own or with a glass of Champagne or matching cocktails.
