Blending contemporary details and classic wood-panelled interiors, Bond St. Tea Rooms sets itself apart with a twist on the traditional British afternoon tea. Begin your experience with a selection of Italian cicchetti, such as a Bruschetta of yellowfin tuna tartare, followed by classic finger sandwiches with Mediterranean influences, homemade scones and deliciously indulgent Italian desserts. The experience is of course complemented with your tea of choice and an optional addition of Champagne or prosecco.

Located just off Oxford Street and directly opposite Bond Street Station, Bond St. Tea Rooms is the perfect treat when visiting London for the day or shopping at nearby boutiques on Oxford Street, New Bond Street and department stores such as Selfridges.

Afternoon tea is served from Thursday to Sunday, 1pm-5pm.

    Lovely food and great modern style afternoon tea menu but without that 'special' feel afternoon tea should have. Very slow / non-existent service even if staff were well-meaning and friendly, they were simply too busy to be able to deliver the basics, which is a shame as the food was quite nice really which was the saving grace of it all. We waited 45 mins for our tea after ordering and an hour for our 1st course. The rest of the afternoon tea came around 30 mins after that. Tea was stewed when we got to have it with cakes so did our best to water it down to drink with scones / cakes. Very loud telephone next to our tanks meaning we couldn't hear each other until it was answered each time it rang. We were asked to open our own Prosecco initially and then handed it by the server to fill ourselves including top-ups. We were not given enough glasses initially or plates once the tea stands did eventually arrive. We were happy to meet as a group of friends to catch up, so weren't there for the experience itself at least, as if it was a special occasion it would've been quite disappointing. It seemed chaotic and not at all calm with staff explaining they were so busy and so sorry, they really were doing their best so we weren't at all annoyed with them or the situation. It would've been nice to have had an idea how long it would take for those who had to leave earlier, but it was very difficult to have any info. The room was not too full but tables were left uncleared around us our whole stay, which wasn't nice to look at and detracted from the ambience a little. There was no background music and lighting quite bright, just a lot of rushing. A nice opportunity to catch up with friends and food nice when it arrived, but wouldn't rush back ir recommend it in a hurry to anyone.

    Service was really slow and clearly something had gone wrong as I don't think this was usual. it took 30 minutes to get any drinks. But once drinks had been given it all seemed to happen very efficiently. The food was incredible and very accomodating for gluten free. Sat next to a big noisy table which dappened the atmosphere a bit

    We all felt that this was the best afternoon tea that we had had, beating the big names. The choice of dishes and number of courses was exceptional. Every dish was delicious and the prosecco generous. The location was tasteful and the staff very attentive without being intrusive. We had a wonderful afternoon.

    This was the 6th time I've been here over the years, each time introducing another friend to their afternoon tea. This was booked weeks ago and yet we were kept waiting a good 15 minutes for our table. My first choice of tea had run out, as had two of the desserts. Tea is served quickly but it isn't piping hot (as tea should be). Service really quite slow overall, and no instinct from the staff to check if teapots needed topping up etc - we had to ask. We also had to ask for some butter for the cheese scones as my cousin didn't want preserves and cream on them - the server looked at her if she was mad and said he didn't know if they had butter(!!) All in all, really terribly disappointing despite the fact the food overall was very good - the bonus was the promotion of having a free bottle of prosecco this month.

    Waited 1 hour and 15 minutes for tea and scones. The reservation gives you the table for 1 hour and 30 minutes, leaving us with 15 minutes to eat. Would not recommend.

    Decent enough food but service was terrible - left waiting for 30/45 min between our 'hot' course and the sandwiches/scones/cakes during Afternoon Tea, and then they got the sandwich order wrong.

    Food amazing, the service was awkward and staff seemed nervous and a bit overwhelmed during service but was still professional acting. Tea room needed ambience music, was a bit awkward sotting in a large tea room with no music or background ambience, especially sitting so close to other people. Overall though an ok experience

    Service has some issues. The reception was slow, they took our order incorrectly, then we had to wait for them to prepare it all over again. We asked for water twice in a row and took several minutes to come. Food, price and booking availability is great, with some improvements in service could easily get to 5 stars

    Not sure what happened on Thursday 11/10. The waiter took our order. The tea came out rather quickly. Unfortunately, that was it. It took them over an hour to get the rest of the food. Once we received the 3 tiered tray we asked them to pack it up. I was very disappointed. The staff kept apologizing for the long wait. Again, not sure what happened in the kitchen. There were just another party besides us.

    Outstanding choices and quality all provided in a superb environment. The variety on offer cannot be faulted in fact I have never experienced such an array at an afternoon tea. The price is also so reasonable I think what we were served warranted a higher price. The only thing I can suggest is that the location needs to be clarified we had a little trouble finding it.

    Great afternoon tea, I loved the idea of the menu with being able to choose different items, instead of being forced to have a standard set menu. The food was good, with a lovely choice of tea selections. Quiet surroundings, very centrally located. The only thing I'd say is to note that they are inside the hotel. Highly recommend!

    One of my favourite places in London for afternoon tea. I have just one criticism and that would be there is no background music at all which would make a far nicer experience, than being able to hear every table's different conversation. The food is always very tasty and beautifully presented. Great friendly service, just too quiet!

    Disappointing experience. We have been to scoff and banter’s once a year for eight years. This was our first time back since Covid. Unfortunately, the standard and quality has gone way down. I ordered a poached egg which was hard boiled. We got a lobster soup which was separated and dull. We were used to very service minded, happy and energetic waiters, but this was sadly not the case this time. Our waiter brought and served a warm bottle of Prosecco. He didn’t explain anything about the difference tea options and when he brought the tea he didn’t tell us how long it needed to steep. However, the price is more than fair and the desserts were delightful.

    The food was lovely and very generous portions. The staff were very friendly but a bit slow with bringing drinks and checking if any top ups were required. The location was a bit hidden- I wasn’t aware that it was in a hotel. But the tea room itself was nicely decorated and laid out. One suggestion would be for some background music to be playing. Overall a lovely afternoon tea with great variety and I will definitely book again.

    The uniqueness of making menu choices, the hot section and different scone flavours are brilliant and put this afternoon tea experience up there with one of the best. Every one of my choices were gorgeous, lobster soup - wow! Service was first class I loved their enthusiasm and knowledge of each and every part of the menu. I would and have highly recommend this Scoff & Banter Afternoon Tea. 10 out of 10. My only little thing would raise is the tearoom is within the Radisson Blu hotel and this isn't clear on the site, and this caused me panic on arrival that I couldn't find it. A quick phone call resolved it but still would take away that aspect. The hotel was being refurbished when we arrived and the smell of paint was powerful on entering and leaving the building, although within the tearoom you would not know the chaos outside the room.
