    The afternoon tea es ok. What i did not like at all was the waiter: he was grabing things from the table while he was waiting the payment. And also the waiter was counting the money in front of us….

    Have been going there at Christmas for the last 5 years. Very dissatisfied. Was not told of menu change when making the booking or notified of it. Drastic change. Not value for money. Booked for 4 people. Deal was bottle Prosecco between 2. Just because I person was aged 12. Payed full price table was not offered 2nd bottle. Food under par. Reduced menu very poor. Young waitress was so nice to bring a small cake out for my granddaughter who’s birthday it was. Have recommended to so many people to in the past. Will not be doing anymore.

    Updated their menu since my last visit a few weeks ago but despite this the food was just as delicious (though I do miss that rhubarb jam a lot). Would be a total 5* rating across the board but construction next door kinda ruins the ambiance a bit. I’m sure when it’s done it’ll definitely be better.

    I am honestly very confused about the good reviews on this place. Maybe we just went on a bad day. It took 30 min for them to take our order, and we started eating 2h after arriving. By that time, our tea was freezing cold, but no one bothered to offer us new tea. The starters and the scones were OK, but the sandwiches and the cakes were awful. The table next to us left without eating them either. What they call panacotta was a very bitter mousse, the sandwiches were stale and tasteless. Our afternoon tea looked nothing like the pictures posted on Google and opentable by other customers. They told us 1h after we ordered that some items were sold out. We left after 3h and paid £38 for one of the worst afternoon teas I ever had. Definitely do not recommend and would never go back.

    Recently went here with my husband and best friend for afternoon tea, had a great experience! Each person gets to choose two items from each section (starter, main, scone, dessert) so show up hungry in addition to their own pot of tea so each person gets eight items to eat. The food was very good, with lots of options to choose from each section. The scones were warm and not dry, mains had the perfect balance of light but filling, and desserts were perfect with a good selection of teas; from English breakfast herbal or green. This place is located on the second floor of the Radisson Blu, the atmosphere was nice and quiet complemented by colorful tea ware. It was the perfect setting for the afternoon tea experience. They are conveniently located on Oxford street, so getting there is easy as they are right by a station. The staff were friendly and attentive, Samarth and Billal were attentive and provided great suggestions to certain items being offered. Would highly recommend coming here for a great afternoon tea experience.

    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.

    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.
