    Afternoon tea was excellent and good value compared with central. However, service was unacceptable. This was to celebrate our 40th Anniversary Ruby Wedding but spoilt by the excessive wait for the food. We booked and arrived at 3pm and it took about 50 minutes. The Meridian Lounge was not that busy so at a loss as to why. The serving staff were very good and explained all the different food items so can only assume the fault lies in the kitchen. Sadly, the experience tarnished what should have been a relaxed and happy occasion and we are unlikely to return.

    It’s a shame I was told there was a halal alternative, when in fact their ‘alternative’ was to offer me more veggie options, the only reason I booked it in the first place was because I was told there is a halal alternative. In the end I paid £120 for a poor selection of food and sub-standard cakes. Only positive is that I cannot fault the outstanding service. In hindsight I wish I had chosen an alternative.

    Honestly there's maybe 2 cakes too many, also the wait staff offer you things that aren't included, which you then get thrown on your bill after, extra hot drinks, £6 for a bottle of water etc. 4/5 from me overall.

    Alright for the price. Pastries are nice and the selection is generous. However, you overlook a smoking area and are sat very close together. Probably wouldn’t go back.

    Overpriced for what you get. Go to a hotel in the West End /Central London instead. Not value for money. Sandwiches boring, No viewing as curtains pulled put, it is on ground floor, misleading photos in the advertising. Lady who server us very nice and friendly, but our order was forgotten and we wanted a long time for our tea.

    First thing to say; the service was great. Our waiter Josef was fantastic and an absolute sweetheart. However, there is no aircon in the restaurant (or at least feels as if there is none). If it's as hot as it was yesterday (32deg), do not go. It was almost unbearable, if it had been cheaper, we probably would have cut our losses and left. The food was tasty, but did actually leave both of us with slightly upset stomachs. Nothing dire, but not pleasant.

    What an amazing experience. We had exceptional service from start to finish by Josef and his team. The selection of teas and treats complimented each other well! As it was my mother's birthday, she received a little birthday surprise cake with a candle. We definitely will be coming to the Meridian Lounge again! Thank you

    Really accommodating team and delicious food. We had two young babies and the staff were wonderful, organising a table with sufficient space having read the note that we made on booking via OpenTable. On arrival it was clear that there was a conference taking place in the hotel as the clientele were very corporate. Nevertheless the team made us two mummies feel very welcome, frequently checking in on us, ensuring that we always had what we needed. They made one of our first special days out since having our babies very enjoyable indeed. Thank you, we will be back!

The only thing I would mention is that when we booked the price was £48 pp but as this was Valentines weekend the price was increased to £58 pp. This was annoying as this was booked for 4 girl cousins celebrating 2 birthdays. Nevertheless it was a lovely afternoon
