We really looked forward to our visit and it was a gift to my daughter and her first high tea experience, I’ve been to several in the past and couldn’t wait to share this with her.


Seated in the front with a nice view of the park. Room was very cold , we sat with layers on for the duration of visit.

Server was polite but provided very little as far as menu explanation at the time of order. The teas selected were delicious.

The scones were delicious and served warmed, the best part of the entire tea service- the plastic portions for toppings are tacky.

This was our 2nd time enjoying the high tea experience at this restaurant. The service was friendly and the sandwiches and other treats were actually quite different between our 2 visits. The kir royale was a nice addition to the high tea. The scones were especially delicious!

Extremely sloppy service for Christmas day afternoon tea. We waited 20 mins for our server to take our order after we were seated for our reservation. Afternoon tea itself was ok. Tea cups and cutlery were dirty and had make server change them.
Place was not busy for service to be this sloppy..

Only concern is that the seating space near the windows did not feel far enough apart from other patrons, given omicron concerns.

The service was amazing and the ambiance was spectacular. I went with my best friend and our moms and had a lovely 2.5 hr brunch there and there was no rush for us to leave, their only concern was we were having a pleasant time.

Jodi was our server. She is professional and a lovely personable individual. We have been coming for high tea for 7 years and Jodi has been there for us 7 times. Thank you Jodi for making our visit great. This was first high tea for my husband and brother in law. Delicious as usual

This is a lovely venue, but the food was a bit of a disappointment. Sandwiches were dry, and the pastries were unimpressive. The flatbread with guacamole seemed out of place. Scones were delicious!

One of the most charming places my daughter and I have been for afternoon tea. The ambiance was wonderful. Staff were so helpful and just could not do any more to please us. Loved the sandwiches. Maybe the "sweet" pastries/cakes could be more exciting and exotic, but no complaint at all. The cheeses served with the sparkling wine and mimosa were perfect - a great selection. Would go back in a mino second. A very super ending to a great couple of days.

Took my mum to the drawing room high tea for her 85 th birthday. We enjoyed it very much. The food and service was impressive. Plenty to eat and the tea was hot and perfect. Many flavours to choose from. The scones were soft and warm. Will definitely visit again.

We had tea (instead of breakfast) and it was excellent! Our server Victoria is perfectly suited to serve tea. We were surprised at the amount of food/choices provided. The number of tea selections is a bit overwhelming but Victoria suggested some of the more popular types so that helped.

The occasion was for my birthday. The person who greeted us wished me happy birthday and seated us at a window table which was lovely. Our server came promptly and took our order. When she brought the tray out with our food she went over everything and gave some recommendations on which to eat first. It was a delightful experience and I plan to repeat it soon.

We have attended the Prince of Wales Drawing Room for afternoon tea previously and what keeps us coming back are the people. The food is abundant and well priced. The atmosphere superb. My wife attended many afternoon teas with her mother having been born in England. She is most impressed by the afternoon tea as presented by the Prince of Wales.
