Perfect service, wonderful relaxed atmosphere. All of my special requests were ready and waiting .
Best afternoon tea service in town. Only one tiny criticism- the bread on the finger sandwiches should be thinner.

We had a wonderful afternoon Tea. The service was friendly and stellar. The atmosphere was very relaxing and food was plentiful and delicious. I highly recommend Tea here and hope to return.

Sorry to report very slow service ! It's not what you expect at Browns! Add insult to injury a hefty service charge is added especially when there is 5 of you

I loved Afternoon tea at Brown Hotel

It's great overall. But they seem short of man power. It took us quite a while when we need to top up our tea and sandwiches. Our waitress did her best and apologized as she was on her own serving 5-6 tables in the area we sat.

It was excellent. They sat us by the fireplace in big comfy chairs. There was music playing in the background, we drank a glass of champagne and had all the delicious treats. I highly recommend.

A lovely, calm atmosphere and and excellenct service at Brown's. They gave us a perfect table at the wall with a good view. Live piano was playing.
We really enjoyed the finely and freshly made sandwiches (there was lots of further supply), the scones and especially the cake selection.
The staff was always attentive, quick and friendly.
The only downside may be the tearoom itself. It lacked a bit of a very special atmosphere of a luxury hotel. I still prefer the Claridges with all its art deco splendour.

disappointing, great place ,but food not so ,we declined coronation chicken bagel which was taken away and not replaced with alternatives, cakes were sticky and sickly after asking for alternative was told there was not any so was given blood orange jelly which was super but an oatmeal slice with a little dried apricot I felt the tea needed more tea leaves as we had chosen a relatively strong choice but it was still lacking in flavour,the staff were fine but not exceptional as I had expected .If I had not had afternoon tea in other London establishments I suppose I would not have known any difference but it was my birthday and my family had recommended it so I was really looking forward to it ,I was very disappointed and will not recommend .
