Took my sister for afternoon tea for her 40th Birthday, it was a lovely experience and our waiter Mohammed was exceptional.

Nice pub, good quiet atmosphere, good food. Service was average but ok. Definitely serves its purpose- to make for a good catch up with friends.

Do not be fooled by the pictures.
Stale bread sammies. Tasteless scones.
Luke warm tea (made by filling tea pots from flasks).
No idea what the clotted cream actually was. Certainly not clotted cream!
Defrosted (badly) cakes. For £30/head i expect fresh cakes. And to have the cheek to tell us that they were!! Beggars belief.
We complained. We were told they would pass comments to the chef. Chef? Really? So our afternoon is trashed but we are supposed to fell better because you told your "chef" his afternoon tea creating is garbage. Absolute joke. Absolute tourist trap.
This was a special event for us and we were meeting our daughter, so we did not feel we could walk out (embarrass her and where would we find an alternative at 3pm on New Year's Eve?)
Tourist traps like this ruin special events with their casual incompetence.
I get that NYE is busy and staffing is tough but do not offer a service that you can not provide. Jeez, all you do is serve sandwiches and tea. Have the grace to do it well, or at least better than awful! .
BTW, it was absolutely freezing cold in the lounge. We had to sit with out coats on.
We were not the only unhappy punters. Table behind us simply walked out when they saw the food.
£30/head.

Loved the grandeur of this place. Old fashioned but luxurious. Afternoon tea good with mostly excellent service though slight delay to order.

The Afternoon Tea was diabolical, the worst Afternoon Tea experience I have ever had in London. I have been to The Ritz, Claridge's, The Savoy, Fortnum & Mason, The Dorchester and I thought this hotel was going to give me the same wonderful experience as these, but how wrong I was. Everything about it was dreadful - the food, the room, the service, the ambience. The white bread was stale and had half the crusts still left on the finger sandwiches. We didn't even touch the cakes that were on the tray as they didn't look appealing at all. Totally terrible in every way.

We ordered our food, only after we had to call a waitress over, and the restaurant didn't seem very busy, so after half an hour we decided to check and see how much longer it would be. No one came back with an update, so as we had an appointment we decided not to bother and we began to put our coats on. We also noticed that the table next to us that sat down and ordered at least 20 minutes after us. Just then a waitress came up with our food. As we did not want to seem rude we took our coats off and sat back down. The waitress who thought she was explaining by saying the salmon that I ordered needed to be grilled, that's why it took so long! I am not a professional chef, but I have cooked salmon before, and if you have taken an hour to grill it, there is a danger it will be over cooked! So we sat down and on our first taste we realised why it had taken so long it was freezing and had probably sat on the side for about 30 minutes. When we said it was cold and inedible the waitress offered us free drinks. That would not make the food any hotter, so we left. Do not recommend and we never eat there again!
