Disappointing to be completely honest. I’ve experienced many afternoon teas across London and this experience was the least enjoyable. My daughter and I were the only people in the restaurant, there was no atmosphere, no music, nothing to create a relaxing time. Far too many staff with nothing to do, 5 at one point. The food itself was average, every course didn’t taste particularly fresh. The scones were hard and dry. The patisserie likely frozen before being served. Our tea was refilled once, expected. No adjustments made to the menu to accommodate a child. I wouldn’t visit again.

Nice hotel. Had afternoon tea after being in London Christmas shopping. Was good location and nice and quiet.

A lovely last minute afternoon tea for two, including one Coeliac.

In the end, this was amazing and we'll keep it in mind for a return visit, but for the mains rather than the tea.

We originally booked for afternoon tea at short notice. This was attempted by the kitchen but not to a very good standard. We were thoroughly impressed and pleased with the attentiveness that we were given when we complained and they realised that the food offered did not constitute the wow experience that you should expect from afternoon tea.

We instead ordered from the main menu with no charge for the tea (which went uneaten beyond the first few dried-out sandwiches). Both the steak and the lobster were excellent in quality and value.

Unlimited fries and a devilish but exquisite dessert (the signature jam jar with honeycomb), accompanied by strawberries and a sublime sugar nest, made for an outstanding dinner and totally rescued the night that was looking beyond repair after the failure of afternoon tea.

Very happy to have found the place; just not for afternoon tea!
