    Fabulous food. A wonderful twist on the high tea experience. Crumpets and salmon were divine.

    We had afternoon tea with a delicious glass of bellini to start. The sandwiches were just right and the cakes and scones were lovely too. It was nice to have an afternoon tea with 'proper' cake rather than the mousse variety that most places seem to serve nowadays and tealeaf tea. The service was very good and the staff very professional. The Capital in Knightsbridge is a very welcoming hotel and just a stones throw from Harrods. Only one small criticism - the room we sat in was quite small and we all found it a little too hot.

    Great location in the centre of Knightsbridge. Small, intimate dining area which could become crowded if busy - we were the only guests on a Friday afternoon. Service was very attentive and the food good.

    We have had afternoon tea about four or five times now, and this by far is my favorite place to go. They provide different types of sandwiches, many sweets, and delicious scones. The tea was wonderful and the ambiance was great. We were greeted at the entrance and given a ticket for our coats and few shopping bags we had. The service was attentive but not intrusive and we were able to take a couple of scones in a take-away bag. For the price, this is a great value and I plan to come back on our next visit to London.
