It was the perfect experience after going to the Summer exhibition at the Royal Academy. Mariana was our waitress and she made me and my mother feel like we were very special.
The tea was delicious and so were the were the cakes and sandwiches!

Great service and delicious food with amicable and friendly staff.
Be careful with what you are expected to order when going there for the high tea ...

Great afternoon tea experience. It was good to have the option to order a savoury dish instead of the sandwiches as part of the high tea menu. Also great service from Irene

We waited 30 min to be seated, while we had a reservation and showed up right on time. We then waited another 30 min to have our afternoon tea served...

The slot was only for 1.5 hours which is quite short anyways. Service was slow - given it’s only 1.5 hours I would have expected things to come quite quickly.

Splendid afternoon tea which I would highly recommend.

We were attended by Jose who really looked after us well and made my Mother's birthday treat with her grandchildren extra special.

Excellent in every way...a must!

Really disappointing. Chose high tea savoury dishes good although I had Welsh rarebit and the tomato and shallot looked like they'd been thrown on the top. The cakes were so disappointing. The small options bland, the scones bit dry and the trolley cakes were dense not sure Victoria sponge cake should taste like lemon as well. 2 different amounts in champagne glasses. Tea arrived at beginning without being asked and pretty bland. Had to ask twice for milk. No knives for scones and cakes not explained. May have been as we booked 6pm but we expected much better. We had a deal but no excuse and certainly not worth the money.

My wife and I have been trying to get a booking for years and to finally get one on a Saturday afternoon was a dream come true.
We were greeted by staff as we arrived at reception we a smile and was handed over to the member of staff who promptly showed us to our table. The waiter came to our table left us time to look at menu then a wonderful glass of champagne arrived setting our experience off. The afternoon tea was amazing and service to a standard you would expect. The staff were amazing and so friendly would recommend anyone to go along and would not be disappointed.
