Alongside an elegant afternoon tea range and a hearty lunch menu, favourite main courses include sea bream with spring vegetable papillote, or confit quail with foie gras and green apple emulsion.

    Everything was perfect. The staff are attentive and provide an excellent service. The furnishings suit the room and the building. But the food surpassed our expectations. Will definitely be back!

    Good afternoon tea experience, staff were friendly and helpful especially to one of our party that had a nut allergy giving him a separate plate with 'safe to eat ' desserts.

    Firstly I had to change the booking last minute as we were going to a show and unfortunately wouldn't make it to an early meal and they were very accommodating, the staff, the service were fantastic. The food was delicious and very underrated. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    We met up for afternoon tea with friends. The tea was great (large pots) but the food wasn't that great - it was ok but probably not worth the money. They were very accommodating to our 2 year old (showing her the butterfly behind the bar, making her a free babyccino, letting her play in the reception area), so would recommend if you want afternoon tea with a little one.

    Lovely restaurant located in a very stylish hotel. The restaurant staff were very attentive to my party's Afternoon Tea requests and were very diligent in looking after us. Would dine here again and would highly recommend this dining experience to anyone.

    I booked afternoon tea here for myself and 3 friends. we were a little early so had a seat in the bar, which was a lovely room with wood panelling. we took tea in the restaurant. The staff were great and the place had a lovely relaxing ambience. we had a good choice of teas, a range of sandwiches followed by scones (some of the best I have tasted and still warm) and a selection of cakes/pastries, including cookies, macaroons, tiramisu, cheesecake and marshmallows, all beautifully presented.
    The location was perfect for the Albert Hall, afternoon tea is not advertised outside, and its quite a subtle entrance to the hotel and bistro. The other benefit for us was that they start at 1pm, so was great for before our matinee performance.
    Would defiantly re-visit in the future and perhaps try dinner here - or if feeling extravagant even stay in the hotel.
    Compared to some afternoon teas in London the cost was ok at £25 per head, but please note they automatically add on 12.5% service charge. I would say its worth it/ A lovely building, good relaxed atmosphere and attentive friendly staff/

    We had afternoon tea booked here in the vintage afternoon tea area but when we arrived the Maitre D'hote asked for our booking paperwork as he said a lot of bookings made indirectly had not been processed by them and consequently they were fully booked and did not have room for people. I had the paperwork and luckily they were able to seat us in the lounge at a table on our own just to make you aware.
    The afternoon tea was super and very good service but it was not quite what I booked for my nieces birthday as we were not accommodated in the restaurant.
    The only other thing was that the ladies toilets smelt horrendous like a blocked drain and I had to ask for hand towels again not quite what you would expect from this level of hotel.
