A beautiful day, planned. The pianist played a well selected, variety of pieces, covering an eclectic range for all ages. Service was delightful and the information regarding the choices of tea was accurate for our tastes. Thank you. It did not disappoint.

Lovely setting for afternoon tea - the only thing that lets it down is that the room is in the middle of the building with no natural light.

Amazing service - my husband was given a special birthday cake with candle. Tea was refreshed regularly without asking, all food was unlimited - we were even given a doggy bag with extra scones to take with us. Can’t fault it for a delicious afternoon tea.

It was an expensive high tea with good service but unfortunately the scones in particular were disappointing.

Amazing experience, both the food and service was outstanding without being too much.
A very special experience to celebrate the fast approaching arrival of our baby.
It was a very special touch with the celebration rose chocolate mousse and the cake and jam to take away.

I’d been looking forward to this for months, and having been before a few years ago had high expectations. Sadly these just weren’t met.
The staff were fab, but afternoon tea is supposed to be an experience. The sandwiches came out all ready dished on a plate each, and they just lacked excitement. Selecting them from a stand is half the fun. The scones were the best I’ve ever had, buttery but light and exactly the treat they should be.
The sweet treats again came out plated up not ready to select at will, and we’re just a bit ‘meh’. They were tasty but not inspiring or provocative, and after seeing Cherish in action on tv I just felt like something was missing. For a solidly traditional afternoon tea I would choose the ritz or actually the lanesborough was excellent, but this just made me a little sad.
FINALLY - and this is an issue, the tables! The chairs are not lounge chairs they are upright for dining, so the fact that the tables are so low you can’t fit your legs under makes the whole thing really uncomfortable. Make the tables higher or the chairs more comfortable!

Firstly, we were disappointed to note that, even though we had booked for afternoon tea, we were shown to a table that was set for lunch and given lunch menus to consider. Secondly, it soon became clear that the information that we had provided about my wife's food intolerances, when we booked, did not appear to have reached our server.
I had also requested a table at the edge of the room and, although we were almost at the edge, we were close to a door leading to/from a service area.
Our servers themselves were very attentive and the food was pretty good, though I am not convinced that it represents good value for money.

Great location and easy to find. The Palm Court is very pleasant, the waiting staff were extremely good, unintrusive but quickly on hand, and very efficient. We had a cream tea and the scones were outstanding, very possibly the best I have ever tasted.

Excellent service, could find no fault at all from the front desk and coat check right down to the waiter who boxed my dessert. Food was very good and in line with other high teas I have attended. Beautifully decorated room with piano player. Great way to spend a couple of hours after shopping on Regent Street.

Went for our daughter’s 18th birthday. The service was fantastic, very attentive and friendly. Food was good and alternatives provided to the vegetarian and pescatarian in the group, with the option of extra sandwiches and scones if wished. Birthday cake was a lovely extra. Noticed one extra bottle of water charged to the table but the two children in the group had been given a virgin mojito for free so didn’t think worth quibbling.

Really exceptional generous service. Thank you. Only slight disappointment was we told our waiter it was my friend’s birthday that day and I think he forgot as I saw a couple of other tables being given cakes with candles in and we didn’t get one. Other than that it was perfect!

Fabulous tea for us adults but this this tea is also fantastic for little ones. My 3 and 6 yr old were able to choose a children’s story they got to take home and also became little chefs assembling their sweets into a scene from one of the stories called the Storm Whale. Very creative and interactive. We have been to other area teas that are not nearly as child friendly. It was nice that we had our traditional adult tea....but they also were fantastic about catering to children and making it special for them.
We will be back! 💗

Had a lovely afternoon tea at the Langham. We had the champagne afternoon tea for three but I was the only one drinking! I was offered a second glass after I had finished the first but then not again (though in theory we had bought 3).just as well though!! The sandwiches were delicious and the scones the best I have ever had. My husband, who is a scone expert throughly enjoyed his father's day treat..

Beautiful, very elagent , excellent place to have afternoon ☕️, the only thing I could Critique Is that the sandwich’s all come on your plate , I would prefer to select from a stand / caddy and £28 for 1 glass / flute of rose champagne is Ridiculous , over all very good
