    Our server wasn’t very well trained it seemed. Or maybe they were new? I don’t know. It was all really fumbled and settling up the bill was exhausting and weirdly complicated. What is more, they spilled the champagne. We mentioned (kindly) that the glass should be picked up AND tilted when pouring…!

    The price is on the high side. If the quality of the food was good I would be happy to pay. We paid £350 for 4 person and honestly we have tasted way better high tea for a much lesser price. It was a big disappointment for us.

    I’ve enjoyed many afternoon teas at my favorite Fortnum and Mason over the years. This week was the second time that service was suboptimal. The original introduced server disappeared after taking my order. I was required to flag down other staff for basic requests such as more hot water, replenishing food and the bill. The tea is a lovely indulgence but feeling forgotten isn’t. Please do better.

    Our second visit to Fortnum & Mason at this time of year for afternoon tea. Unfortunately a very different experience to our first! We felt like we were on a afternoon tea conveyor belt where they were just churning people through. Service was extremely slow, food was ordinary (very sickly cakes and scones weren’t fresh) and the whole experience was overall very disappointing and expensive. We repeatedly asked for a pot of hot water to replenish our tea and gave up in the end and left to jostle our way through the hordes of people on the ground floor. Unfortunately we won’t be returning.

    The service was poor on this occasion,stuck in a corner,served and forgotton. No check back,no asking if we required anything else until we asked. Then server a pot of loose leaf tea with no tea strainer. Disappointed.

    The Fortnum & Mason Diamond Jubilee Tea Room is beautiful and feels like a special occasion. Service wasn’t amazing but the people were nice enough. Sadly, the food does not hold up. The sandwiches were mediocre — bland and really light on the fillings. The pastries for the savory tea were actually inedible. The sweet pastries for the afternoon tea were fine but nothing special. Scones were decent. While they offer unlimited refills on everything, we only wanted refills on the plain scones. I’d rather they just gave one round of food and had it actually be good — felt oddly cheap for a £70+ per person experience. Could not recommend in good conscience.

    Wonderful food, music and ambience. But refills on tea were a bit lacking. Tea got cold and no one came to check where we would like a pot of hot water. Staff were wonderful. Booking late in the day allows you longer to sit and enjoy your tea, as you are not rushed out for next booking.

    What a lovely afternoon tea! Such a beautiful room, and the waiters are so helpful if you have trouble deciding (there are LOTS of choices for food and tea). Pro tip: You can get more of anything you like! Have a favorite sandwich - ask for more! And don't worry - the tea is unlimited, too, so try a couple of different flavors. Tea is such a special treat, especially when visiting London, and F&M does it right!

    We had a nice afternoon at Fortnums, selecting a savoury and sweet afternoon tea so that we could try one another’s. The food was lovely, although a slightly wider sandwich selection would be great. My main takeaway, and probably the reason I’d opt to try a different afternoon tea next time, was it was hard to get a refill of tea. Our server was very nice but was either looking after too many tables or just not ‘on it’ and we felt like a nuisance constantly chasing. When we asked another server for more tea, our waitress made a comment about not needing to ask other servers which then made things a bit awkward!

    Lovely venue and we are regulars especially for a special occasion, unfortunately the service on this occasion was really poor and we felt ignored and had to keep prompting for tea and coffees we had ordered and had to pour our on champagne. Lacked in the 5 star feel due to this and after coming out having spent £250 it felt lacked the detail we know Fortnum and mason is usually known for, for us.
