For dessert, a delectable selection includes Amalfi lemon tart with mascarpone, or rich pot au chocolat.

Offering a more laidback selection, The Grosvenor Arms serves a lunch menu of hearty signature sandwiches, burgers and colourful salads, as well as hand-crafted treats for afternoon tea. The international wine list offers some superb complementing bottles.

I booked the Grosvenor for afternoon tea on 20/05/16 for 9 of my family and friends to celebrate me getting awarded an MBE. As it was a special occasion I opted for the champagne option and I can tell you we were not disappointed.
The ambiance of the hotel, the afternoon tea and the service were exemplary and all of my guests were thoroughly thrilled and talked about it all weekend.

Fawlty Towers! Prebooked, but on arrival we were shown to the only unset table that was hastily wiped down as we approached. A waiter arrived 5 seconds after we received the menu to take our orders which we weren't ready to give (still no table setting). After giving our orders someone who appeared to be a manager asked if we were OK , so I said no and that i didn't understand why we were sat in a corner on an unmade table when there were plenty of nicely laid tables. He moved us immediately and laid out linen napkins on our knees with a flourish. Our meals were a long time coming, while people choosing the buffet option ( which we weren't made aware of) had polished off two courses and gone back to work. I don't mind a bit of a wait though as it always gives hope that the food is freshly prepared. After the meal, ordered two coffees which didn't arrive despite other people ordering and being served almost immediately. You know how you wonder how waiters remember your order when they don't write anything down....?! The manager approached again (the first member of staff to come close enough to catch in the absence of the coffee). He immediately went off to get the coffee. The waiter then came over to say sorry for the fourth time ( too many issues to list here) and when I told him that the manager was getting the coffee he lowered himself down and almost hissed 'he's not the manager he's just a supervisor'. I replied that whatever his job title was, he was sorting out all of the problems! The 'manager' took the coffee off the bill but added a 12.5% service charge but by this point we were in too much of a hurry to argue. We had a main course, wine and coffee and it took us from 12.55 - 14.30. If you are going to the Garden Party like us, choose the buffet menu! It is really convenient for Buckingham palace and can be accessed directly from Victoria Station. Nice old wood panelled surroundings (Grosvenir Arms)

We made reservations for afternoon tea with champagne for our arrival. The Hotel Lounge was a lovely setting for tea and having the red double-decker buses driving by right outside made the whole experience unforgettable. We loved everything served, from the sandwiches to the petite cakes and scones.

I was hoping to dine in nice surroundings. It was a day for celebration. We were put into an area with Sky TV on a large television. This did not create the ambiance I was expecting. The portion sizes were not great either.

Salmon and cream
Cheese was a hit...
Lemon/lime cheesecake was indulging.
Very friendly staff no request seemed too much.
The tour of the honeymoon suite was a treat.
Would definitely visit again.

Sweets were not overly sweet. Perfect cup of English tea.

The restaurant has a very good location. The ambience is very good and I definitely recommend the place for a special occasion. The afternoon tea was really good.
