A lovely place to enjoy Afternoon Tea. The service was excellent and the food very tasty. Plus they had a gluten free option for my friend. I would definitely take a visitor or friend here again.

A good experience overall, generous portions and good service and setting. My main criticism is the cakes. The scones were dry and hard on the outside, didn't seem freshly baked. The cakes were very sickly and fussy. It would be better to have a selection of more traditional but high quality English cakes and biscuits.

We went on last Sunday and ordered the high tea set menu. Food and high tea set were so good except the service.
The waiter did not recommend or explain anything to us and he was disappear all the time. It was hard to ask him or other staff come to serve us.
I came here before which it was extraordinary service, then I recommended this tea room to my friends to celebrate our friend's birthday but it was so disappointed.

We were stuck in traffic and we called them to make sure they did not give our table away. They only hold it for 15 minutes.
This was our first tea experience in London and it was how I pictured it would be. Very pricey, but all the food was good. They ask if you have any food allergies. We ordered from the Rare tea selection. Don't forget to save room for dessert.
Service was great and since this was our first time they explained everything to us.

Service was great, and we had a lovely time. However the sandwiches and scones were stale, like they had been left out for a while uncovered which was a real shame.

High tea was an entirely new experience for us and we enjoyed it very much. The food was well prepared, rich and decadent. The atmosphere was very old school, British royal and high class. The decor and soft colors humorously made me think my Great Grandmother had some input. The waiter was nice enough to educate us on tea & biscuit etiquette that we did not arrive with. I would recommend this experience to my family and friends.

We visited specifically for afternoon tea in the Jubilee Tea Salon to celebrate my wife's birthday. We both enjoyed the experience immensely. The staff were very friendly and paid particular attention to my wife's need for dairy and soya free food. This dietary requirement was dealt with in a very professional manner and my wife commented that she thought that the staff were excellent, probably the best she had experienced anywhere. Her only criticism was that the cakes and pastries were both dairy and gluten free, which is great if you have a gluten problem but not so great if you only have a dairy issue. Sadly gluten free products aren't eaten by choice but out of medical need.
All aspects of our visit made my wife's birthday treat one to remember. The quality of food, service and surroundings were spot on.
A big thank you to all concerned.

Overall a disappointing afternoon tea. My wife has a sea food allergy. I emailed weeks before the day advising specific food allergies, our food likes, dislikes etc We where impressed the waiter had our printed allergies info with him at our table & discussed it with us. Confirmed sandwiches would be especially made avoiding food allergies or things neither of us liked. Only to arrive with a plate full of sandwiches my wife could not eat. Had to wait another 35 minutes before my wifes sandwiches arrived. Of the 90 minutes allocated to us to enjoy our afternoon tea (a anniversary treat) it then felt rushed to have consume our tea. It was left to the waiter to make a tentative apology of sorts. No one from restaurant management made any apology or explained why it was so difficult for the kitchen to prepare food/sandwiches without allergens or foods we dislike in them? Dont think we will be going back.

The reception was a little busy we were a little early so we had to wait. We waited about 30 mins it total. Lemonade was offered to some people waiting, unfortunately we were not one of them they walked straight past us.
Once we were shown to our table. The service was excellent and Anna our server could not do enough for us. Thank you.

My friends and I had a wonderful time at the Diamond Jubilee Salon for an evening tea. The room itself is lovely and decorated in Fortnum and Mason Blue (think Tiffany Blue in the States) and the place settings are delightful. My friends had never had a full tea service before and were surprised at the amount of food that came with our selection. The sandwiches for Afternoon Tea are refreshable as many times as you want and my friends all found their High Tea meals excellent (scallops, lobster, and Scotch egg). You are also free to select multiple tea varietals through the meal. The Fortnum and Mason tea was my favourite, but the vanilla nougat was a close second.

I shall definitely recommend this to my friends and return the next time I'm in London.

If you are traveling to London, I recommend you to take afternoon tea here. (I liked a high tea more than an afternoon tea) You might be able to have much luxury afternoon tea set at 5stars hotels, but this well-known tea company’s afternoon tea will remain as one of the best unique memory in your travel history. Staff, service, atmosphere, off course caked&scones and foods are excellent. :)

Afternoon tea at F&M used to be great because of the excellent standard of service and the lovely ambience of the Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon. Though the room is still lovely, the service is now lack-lustre. The staff were distracted and not particularly friendly. My table, as with others seated around me had to keep trying to flag staff down for assistance. We were not offered water refills or hot water refills for our teapots.

F&M also seems to have become a little stingy - when asked politely if we may try a very small slice of more than one cake on the trolley we were told that customers may only try one cake each. Not a big deal at all, but it seems slightly unreasonable when you're paying a premium for the experience and afternoon tea, and not requesting multiple whole slices of cakes!
