We were made very welcome from the start. The service was excellent and the food delicious. Perhaps a little too attentive at times (I,ve never drunk so much tea ) The pianist played beautifully and quietly in the corner. All in all a very pleasant afternoon

With exotic teas carefully selected by a resident tea connoisseur, afternoon tea at The Wellesley is the hotel’s contemporary take on the timeless British tradition. A shimmering art deco setting in a renovated 1920s townhouse, The Wellesley is a modern addition to London’s luxury hotel scene.

Afternoon tea at the Wellesley in Knightsbridge is served in the intimate and atmospheric Jazz Lounge. Classic silver stands are laden with delicate homemade finger sandwiches, warm raisin scones from the bakery and an assortment of dainty pastries, while, for the ultimate decadence, add Brut, Rose or Grand Kuvee Krug champagne and a handful of fresh strawberries.

Carefully chosen from the finest tea estates in the world, loose leaf teas at The Wellesley hotel in London are elegantly presented in a polished wooden box. They are then aromatically brewed in a clear glass tea pot and served in sophisticated gold-rimmed glass tea cups.

The Wellesley is at number 11 Knightsbridge, a 3-minute walk from Hyde Park Corner Tube Station. The suggested attire for afternoon tea is smart casual.

    Excellent service, very good food, even a surprise birthday cake if you come to celebrate a birthday! Portions are great. And the churchill blended tea is exquisite! Nice intimate atmosphere with live piano. I highly recommend this address

    My New Year's Day was spent having afternoon tea at the Wellesley and I must say I was extremely impressed with the service and the food and drink. Everything about this hotel is perfect so I would 100% recommend this hotel for not only afternoon tea but for all the rest that it offers. Thank you Wellesley for the lovely experience.

    Absolutely faultless. A delicious, creative afternoon tea, excellent service in beautiful surroundings. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    I booked The Wellesley for my mother in laws birthday and have to say it was absolutely fantastic. The food was delicious and plentiful as was the tea, cakes and scones. At the last minute I dediced to tell them it was her birthday and at the end they brought in a cake with a candle on and the pianist played happy birthday and everyone applauded......it was a really nice touch. The pianist was also superb. It was a very relaxed atmosphere in comparison to other afternoon tea venues I have been to. You were not crammed in and sitting on top of each other. Definitely worth every penny. Would highly recommend this hotel for afternoon tea. Have to say it is probably my favourite so far!!!!

    Was not as formal as expected but delightful anyway

    So so experience. They put sweetener into one of the sugar bowls without indicating that it was sweetener- this gave a bad experience to my husband who hates the synthetic taste.
    The service was a bit erratic, I had the impression that there were not enough staff- even though the place was not full. However the service from Emmanuele was very good and he noticed we particularly liked th macaroons and brought us some more.
    The food was very good. I would prefer tea to be left on the table- as it was not served often enough and got quite cold.
    The decor and atmosphere is a bit too formal and cold.
    Overall a disappointing experience. We will go back to Browns next time.
