Afternoon Tea at St Paul's Hotel
The service was excellent, the setting wonderful but the food was not to my liking. The sandwiches were a sort of Scandinavian take on tea with a form of open sandwich on bread converted into melba toast, the scones were dry and I did not bother trying the pastries as they did not look very appetizing. I would not recommend St Paul's Hotel for tea although it is probably great for a drink due to the setting and service.
VeryGreat afternoon especially the everlasting champagne
We were surprised at the overall cost for 2 people - a bit expensive for tea without champagne. The individual pots of were luke warm only and we expected leaf tea rather than tea bags given that we were meant to be enjoying a traditional English afternoon tea. Given the cost, we were disappointed overall. Properly brewed tea requires freshly boiled water rather than just warm. The staff were more interested in chatting amongst themselves rather than attending to customers needs. Sadly, the concept of Customer Service was not much in evidence on this occasion!
We thought we were booking afternoon tea at The St Paul Hotel in St Paul MN USA.
The St Paul Hotel was very accommodative on Valentines Day (they were already booked) and found a way to serve us. We are inspired to travel to London Next Week and give the original reservation a try.
Sorry St Paul’s but with the time difference we blew past the reservation. It was 9:00 PM your time when we figured it out.
I''ve had afternoon tea at several places in London but this was not the most charming one. Very loud disco music to compensate for all the drilling and construction work going on outside the window. If we had know we wouldn't have booked here. Service fine but the food was ok. Nothing more.
An excellent traditional tea served in nice surroundings. Plenty of whipped cream available if you ask for more...
Beautiful surroundings and fresh food. Unfortunately spoilt by a group of women who were overly loud using profanities. Totally inconsiderable of others in terms room.. much nicer after they left.. otherwise a lovely treat.
Had afternoon tea here to celebrate a very dear friends birthday. It's a fabulous place and we sat at a window with a lovely view outside. You couldn't fault the service, the food was plentiful and we couldn't eat everything. And they were very generous with the champagne!
All in all a wonderful afternoon and we are planning to come back again soon
We had a really lovely afternoon. The food was completely delicious and the service was attentive, friendly and just right.
Generous with the champagne, lovely service, and good food.
Very beautiful venue. Staff were extremely polite and helpful! Overall great experience
Such a beautiful building, looking even more special due to the Christmas decorations, was taken into a very beautiful room with period features, not too big, very tastefully decorated.
We ordered our afternoon tea, without the 'bubbles' and it was very impressive to the eye, with delicious Christmas themed sweet treats, the only thing that let it down was the filling in the sandwiches was almost non existent, and my biggest bug bear, lovely teas served 'bagged' please please please, use loose leaf tea, it is so much more special, and I probably wouldn't come back because of that one element! Such a shame, as it could have so easily been my 'new favourite place' given the wow factor of the building. The staff were also attentive and we're constantly cleaning the place!
I went for an afternoon tea with a friend and we both had a great time. The staff was nice and helpful. The food amazing. It was a great moment. Will definitely recommend and come back :)
Brilliant service and overall experience. Can recommend highly.
Had my mothers 70th at the medley and it was fantastic food excellent staff and service! we will be returning even though we live in Kent it was a fab afternoon and would recommend to everyone
