Unwind with a glass of champagne and choose from a selection of 13 fine loose leaf teas, including the signature 'Waldorf Tribute' blend that was created by Twinings exclusively for, and only found at, The Waldorf Hilton.

Savour a selection of finely cut sandwiches, warm freshly baked scones and delicate pastries that change seasonally and are beautifully served on a 3-tiered stand made of Royal Crown Derby fine bone china. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday live entertainment is provided by the resident harpist.

Boasting a showbiz clientele, Afternoon Tea at The Waldorf London is the epitome of chic. Covent Garden Tube Station is 6 minutes’ walk away.

    This is somewhere I'd heard about and wanted to visit for a long time and it didn't disappoint.

    The staff are all so friendly and attentive. The decor with its white and gold highlighted room with pillars is airy and elegant, shutting out the busy streets outside. It felt so calming and relaxing. Having a harpist playing added to the good vibes.

    We opted for the champagne afternoon tea, which was a bargain at only £5 more. The china and 3-tier cake stand was decorated in a gorgeous pattern, filled with lovely selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes. We couldn't finish them all, so they boxed them up to take away.

    There wasn't a tea dance on the day we went but we looked through the mirrored doors to the dance floor area. It looked amazing and makes me want to come back and see it then.

    I took daughters and granddaughter. The staff were brilliant and made us very welcome from the moment we entered to the moment we left. They made the experience truly memorable especially for my 8 year old granddaughter by providing her with a special drink. We were all thoroughly spoilt.

    The worst afternoon tea I have ever had. The Hotel itself and particularly the Homage Room looked dark, tatty and cheap. The furniture has not been restored in a very long time and the ambience in itself was not welcoming. The staff did not speak good English and there was no friendliness. The food was really bad. The bread in the sandwiches was stale and the sandwiches did not taste good. Very limited selection of tea listed in what appeared to be a very cheap plastic little menu.

    Afternoon tea was lovely, sandwiches, scones and pastries all brought to the table at the same time, with tea and champagne (and a palate cleanser of a passion fruit custard to start, nice staff, left us alone but available if needed.

    Beautiful setting, with harpist playing. It is a traditional place to have afternoon tea, but with a relaxed feel. Really enjoyed it.

    Lovely location, beautiful setting and the afternoon tea was excellent value. Only slight blip which did annoy & make feel uncomfortable, was the fact that the bill was bought to us when we were still on our scones with a wonderful selection of pasties still to be had, we then felt awkward so asked to take the pastries home. As to why they presented the bill, they weren't busy, had spare tables so a disappointing end to a birthday treat.

    My friend and myself enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea at the Waldorf. The service was very good and the food was very tasty.We we're not hurried at all and had a thoroughly nice time.
