This was an opportunity for an afternoon tea; I will say it was like no other. Excellent service, but $200+ for two people without a champagne add-on was shocking!! The $41 and up pricing seems slightly misleading when there aren’t $41 per person options. This is a one-and-done. We would have enjoyed more than $125 in total, as that’s what the tea felt like. If you’re ok with the money they do a good job overall.

They took such special care with us- I noted it was for our anniversary and they had a handwritten card for us and surprised us with a dessert with a chocolate “Happy anniversary” placard. The food was phenomenal, the hotel Lanesborough stunning and elegant. A truly lovely experience. The Bridgerton tea was so so tasty and very filling!

About the restaurant
Indulge your inner child and adventure into the magical, mouth-watering world of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with our enchanting afternoon tea, that has had a dazzling makeover.

Fizzy lifting drinks, snozzberry jam, chocolate swudge milkshake mixed by waterfall –all tantalisingly tremendous items inspired by Roald Dahl’s iconic story. 

In the heart of London’s theatreland, you can find a wonderful taste of Willy Wonka’s factory. Feast on scrumptious savouries such as our not-quite-as-it-seems macaron and classic Coronation chicken. Journey on for fabulously fluffy floss and a box stacked high with wondrous cakes, sweets, mallows and creams. If you find this thirsty work, wash it down with chocolate or lemon sherbet tea, Juicing Room mix, water pistol punch cocktails, or fizzy lifting Champagne - spot on for spectacular special occasions or simply an indulgent afternoon immersed in one of the tastiest tales ever told.

What an amazing afternoon tea. The location is great, the sandwich selection really good, the sweet desserts were enjoyable some cakes did feel a bit stale but the unlimited tea and cocktail made up for that. Very filling surprisingly and the price was just an added bonus. I will be raving about this place to close friends and family and will 100% be returning myself. The yacht it is held on is quite a view as well.
