It was beautiful and the piano was great, food was amazing; but waiters ignored you and just stood around talking to eachother. They were out of SIX teas?? And we had the earliest seating! Imagine going later in the day. Great food but should have better service for $75 a person.

Took parents for 70th birthday. Really disappointing. Waited 1hr for some dry sandwiches. It’s a set menu so they know what everyone is having. Service was poor. No proper vegetarian menu. Loud claustrophobic atmosphere. Too hot and.l no natural light. Slow service. Over priced. Have had fantastic afternoon tea elsewhere. Would not recommend Harrods.

Food good, service good but it’s overpriced given the setting and ambience. You are basically sat in a lobby with people walking through, its very noisy and the toilets are miles away and used by shoppers etc. Plus there is a queue of people watching you as you eat. For £59 with no alcohol you are better booking somewhere really nice like the Savoy. We had a nice time but wouldn’t go back or recommend.

The service was really slow. We had to wait ages to even get our drinks. Another table that arrived after us got their food first. The sandwich selection was not very nice. The coronation chicken should be taken off the menu. The desserts were also lacking flavour. The vegetarian option was by far the best choice.

I disclosed my nut allergy to the server and received food with nuts which resulted in a severe allergic reaction. The server didn’t seem to care and did not notify the manager, I had to tell her what happened and then it took a prolonged period of time for them to remove my food from the bill since the only thing I ate almost killed me. Overall very disappointed in the lack of care and attention to what is becoming a common issue, especially from a premium establishment such as Harrod’s.

Super delicious sandwiches and delicious desserts, which were tasty without being too sweet and sickly. Excellent service. Loved the piano playing. Have recommended it to my friends.

Staff is usually an asset, and at The Harrods Tea Rooms they proved to be the stars of the show. We were also fascinated by the live piano in the background which was soothing and not too loud. We also had a child who enjoyed the experience and what was in offer in the Children's menu - she did not get bored. Overall, we had a very pleasant afternoon.

Very poor service provided by staff who preferred to chat at their waiting stations than serve their guests. There was an exception to this, a helpful and efficient young man with fairish hair.
My quiche had a great deal of unpleasant fat in it and the very meagre salad had no dressing, nor was I offered any.
My friend's first glass of champagne was flat and the bar staff must have realised this upon pouring it but they still served it.
The restaurant manager did make amends by offering a courtesy glass of champagne and a selection of desserts which we appreciated.
Bring back the old Georgian Restaurant please and clear out some of the lazy female staff.

The food is top quality. Staff a little absent and our waiter left to go home without anyone notifying us.
Overall the atmosphere is beautiful and will definitely revisit.

Food very nice, had to ask for waiter a couple of times and it took I long time for home to come. Piano man played very loud, wasnt very gentle music, more heavy music played. Asked for butter to go on scones and never got any.

Overall; it was a great experience. The atmosphere is lovely. There was a guy playing piano.
The price is high, one afternoon tea is £59.

Will definitely visit the restaurant again for special occasion.

Lovely room and helpful waiting staff. Approx time normally one and a half hours but we were there for 2 hours and were not rushed at all perhaps because we had a later reservation. The ambiance was greatly helped by the piano player. The selection of teas was excellent.
A few things would have improved the experience; the sandwiches while tasty were a little dry on the edges from being prepared in advance, some trellis or partitioning would enhance the feeling of intimacy which was lacking due to being in full view of people waiting to be seated or making enquiries at the desk.
All in all an enjoyable experience.

A little pricey but the sandwiches are, essentially, all you can eat and the scones were fantastic.
Good treat but wouldn't frequent it.

We have visited the tea room for over 5 years where it was first called the Georgian. The New Year’s Day visit was terrible. The service was extremely slow, and required prompting.

Good food, bad service. We seemed to be ignored by the wait staff until we had to wave at multiple waiters for someone to come over just so we could have more hot water. The food was lovely, but the service has put us off going back. Not worth the the service charge they add to the bill!
