Afternoon Tea at The Ritz

150 Piccadilly, London, W1J 9BR

Food Spend £50
Hours of Operation:
Monday - Sunday:11:30- 19:30.

The ambience of the setting and the attentiveness of the staff made it a special occasion.

The fact that our group included some with unusual dietary needs did not phase the chef and the sandwich and cake feast was sumptuous.

Everything about the afternoon tea was fabulous very good food and plenty of it the staff were very friendly and obliging and nothing was too much trouble.
17 March 2017 by Iain Corcoran from Ritz London

To summarise it was just quintessentially perfect. An absolute delight, from the decor to the service to the food.

I loved the Ritz - From the simplest of bookings to the arrival and attentive silver service

I'd recommend to anyone that wants to do something special for a loved one.

celebrated my 90th birthday. Great occasion. Staff without fault. My son and daughter took me. A doggie bag to take home one of the uneaten cakes for my husband who is not too well would have been nice. Our 70 wedding anniversary next year so perhaps he will be able to join us then. Thank you for a great occasion. Please thank the staff.

Terrible experience. I used to go to the Ritz every other week for dinner and/or afternoon tea, and will now stop doing so. In the last few months, service at both afternoon tea and the Ritz Restaurant have tanked, and I will not go back.

This is not just based off one experience, this is based off my last 4 visits to the hotel this past month.

Good customer service,the italian weiter dancing arround us...a lot of a good ideea to.have a professional.foto.service 'cause Tea Afternoon at Ritz is not about food,is about Memorabilia and experience together...
The warderobe guy.a bit.stift.but hey...this is Ritz after all :)))...You might.think to include a little.give away (simbolic)..a pen with Ritz logo in a nice casket or a small box of "Your favorite Afternoon at Ritz"...and for teenagers a nice " Future Ritz Club Member"

By the way...I would like to become.a.Ritz Member Club or something....

And don't forget to...sesubilize the doormen at main entrance...not at all elegant with questions about taxi at leaving...etc

Thank you
I will.came again

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience from the initial welcome through the excellent waiters and the atmosphere. Oh yes tea good too. Only criticism that as it is impossible to consume it all it would be really great if we could have taken what we could not eat home with us. Can't understand why not as it is not a cheap tea!

We had a lovely afternoon tea. The service was perfect and sandwiches and scones delicious. We had the valentine special with endless top up of tea and champagne and as much as you can eat. They didn't want you to leave still hungry that's for sure.
