The food is basic there weren’t many options but the service was amazing and so was the ambiance. Probably wouldn’t go again because the price wasn’t worth the food

We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. Although it was a quiet Sunday evening and patronage was low, we could not falter any aspect of our experience and will definitely be back!

Place is lovely for a treat. The Everbearing Beauty cocktail is gorgeous! We shared the mushroom risotto & then had fish and chips each. The Provence Rose wine was lovely too. £200 is a lot for 2 people but the service is impeccable, surroundings are lush and the quality of food superb.

This was my third visit. I choose this location when I want to chat with friends so I would have scored the experience higher still if there had been no singer. He was loud, old fashioned, and nobody seemed to be listening to him in the 3hrs I was there. Apart from that, the experience was very nice indeed.

Beautiful building from the outside and felt welcome as soon as I stepped in with doors being opened for you.

Given a really nice table with a good menu to choose from and as expected of such an establishment champagne by the glass!

Will definitely visit again

Really lovely place. Beautiful elegant formal dining area. All the staff were lovely, smiley, looked after us very well. Great price compared to other similar venues considering the surroundings, the service and the food. The photos don't do it justice. Came for a special birthday afternoon tea. Lovely piano playing in the background, great interior design. Would highly recommend.

Bad service, after we finished the first round of tea it took them an hour to bring the next round of tea. Waitress explained this was due to all people ordering the second round of tea during the same time which is hardly believable since it takes only a few minutes to boil a tea. Even though they do not have many tables in the rotunda which should make it very easy to service the customer, it was difficult to grab any waiter as they rarely stopped by the tables. Location is nice, but given the awful service not recommendable.

I came here for high tea and was not disappointed. Given that it was the Four Seasons, I was surprised to see how reasonably priced the high tea was considering how much more other venue charged. The service was great and the food was surprisingly filling. I loved the ambiance with the pianist. Highly recommend if you are a tourist looking for a high tea experience at a reasonable price!

A fantastic experience because of the staff that work at Rotunda, particularly George. He went out of his way to make our time as comfortable as possible, was so polite and cheerful. We thank him so much for being a pleasure and gentleman.

Look forward to making this a regular afternoon event.

And of course the tea, sandwiches and pastries were delightful in terms of presentation and taste.

My favourite place for breakfast in London, was once again an outstanding experience.
Our order included Burford brown eggs Royale, Hass avocado on Toast, and Toasted bagel with smoked salmon, all delicious, but especially good was the No.10 Trinity Square specialality, French toast.
The service was efficient, yet friendly and relaxing.

By far the best place I’ve experienced for afternoon tea! The pastries were so beautifully presented and tasted out of this world, so light you didn’t feel you had over indulged. The sandwiches were plenty and had been enhanced with delicate seasonings. The service was discreet, yet very attentive. We ended up spending more time than we intended as the atmosphere was so relaxing, but we weren’t hurried or made to feel we had outstayed our welcome, in fact, exactly the opposite. Can’t wait to visit again and spend another wonderful afternoon of delightful indulgence. Thoroughly recommended.

I was celebrating my birthday with my close friends at Rotunda lounge&bar at Four Seasons hotel recently. I decided to book this place as some of my friends never been there before, we all were very pleased and had a great evening. It was nice cozy atmosphere on Friday evening with live music. The food and service were great , the staff were very attentive. Good choice of food and drinks. Thank you, we will definitely come back in the future!
