    Having afternoon tea at The Capital was a lovely experience, the staff were very attentive nothing was to much when we requested for things. the area where had our afternoon tea was just perfect for my friend and I, it was small and cosy that enabled us to relax and talk all afternoon also my friend I really liked the deco and the seating. The sweet selection and cakes were lovely, the only thing my friend and I thoought we wishthere was more of an sandwich selection. That is the only down side, other than that it was a great afternoon and I would recommend the The Capital for afternoon tea.

    Lovely afternoon tea. Beautiful hotel and location. Delish food . Only criticism was the service was particularly slow . Pleasant but not attentive enough and it was extremely quiet so they weren't rushed off their feet.

    The food was amazing! Every little bite was fantastic. I normally don't like salmon, but even that was so nice. The room and the piano music gave a relaxed atmosphere. Also the food was the perfect size and quantity. It really was the best afternoon tea I have ever experienced. Thank you for that.

    Came here with friends who were here on holiday so I wanted them to experience traditional afternoon tea. They were very impressed! Excellent service, from the welcoming to the table service. Afternoon tea was also very good, reasonable price too considering the 5-star service.

    My daughter and I had a wonderful time at The Capital. We were received very kindly and the afternoon tea was delicious!
    When you're in London, you should definitely go to The Capital for the afternoon tea. Everthing was homemade and the ambience was fantastic!!

    The food was very good but the afternoon tea room was not cooled and given it was more than 30 degrees celius in London we asked to get moved to the bar area. The staff were great and accomodated us but it was hardly an afternoon tea atmosphere.
