A beautifully designed boutique hotel tea room. Staff very attentive and delicious warm scones and freshly made sandwiches and rolls. Generous quantities meant we couldn't finish the cakes. A very worthwhile alternative to lunch in a fabulous setting round the corner from Harrods and Harvey Nicks.

    We had a really lovely afternoon tea at The Capital, including a champagne cocktail. We were shown to a table in a small, cosy dining room. The table looked lovely, the waiter was attentive, and background piano music added to the ambience. After our champagne cocktail, we were served lovely sandwiches and mini-rolls, all fresh and tasty, and tea of our choice. The cakes included a delicious treacle tart and a light and moist orange and poppy-seed cake. Mini desserts included a lemon posset, and a strawberry trifle. We then had warm scones with cream and preserves to finish. All of it absolutely scrumptious! The hotel reception staff were very friendly and courteous. A delightful afternoon.

    Excellent service, fantastic food in a great location. From the moment we walked in my friends and I were already planning to come again. Everything about the experience made us feel welcome. Then the food came and all of our comments were on how fantastic it was. There was nothing we could fault the entire time. We weren't rushed during the meal and even afterwards when we stayed to talk there wasn't the feeling that they needed to turn tables around and so we would have to leave.

    I visited The Capital for the first time on Sunday for afternoon tea and it was all rather nice. The peach bellini hit the spot to be followed by some tasty sandwiches and a miniature quiche. Warm scones were next followed by a selection of cakes and mini desserts which were very appealing. If I had one criticism, for me I prefer to have cakes rather than mini desserts but that’s just me. The service was excellent and the waiters were lovely. I would definitely return.

    My daughter and myself had a brilliant afternoon. It is nice and close to the shops and after a busy morning we walk in to a lovely welcome from the staff. The cocktail was chilled and lovely to sip while choosing which tea you would like, I had Dragon Flower it came in a glass teapot and you watch the flower open. The food was delicious We had an excellent tea.
