Evoking an air of timeless elegance, Afternoon Tea at The Waldorf offers the timeless British tradition of afternoon tea. A majestic dining room features splendid restored balustrades, and a spectacular glass ceiling.

Dainty afternoon tea offerings on the The Waldorf menu include assortments of finger sandwiches, homemade pastries and delicious tea party-style cakes. Classic fillings include smoked salmon and cream cheese, or ham and mustard on onion bread. Freshly bakes scones are served lathered with thick preserve and lashings of Devonshire clotted cream, and fine fragrant teas are sourced from all over the world.

In this iconic setting, The Waldorf Afternoon Tea boasts an on-site patisserie showcasing delectable pastry-based goods. For a smooth and nostalgic ambience, The Waldorf Aldwych presents ballroom classics from its live 5-piece band, staged monthly on a Sunday afternoon.

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

    The most disappointing afternoon tea I have ever been to!(And I`ve been to quite a few!)Service was very slow,had to keep asking for things such as more tea,more jam etc.Waitied15 mins for bill and a further 15 mins to pay.In the end left money on table and left(I wanted to pay by card)Cakes left little to the imagination.No attention to detail and some so bland could of baked better myself!!!Had to share cakes(cut each in half)never had to do that before,always at least one each and sometimes more if wanted!And had to pay extra for more scones!!!!Was totally gobsmacked!!!Never had to pay for anything extra before at a London tea!Will def not recommend this tea to anyone,very very let down.

    The staff, food and ambiance were excellent, highly recommend. The musak was not to my taste, I, preferred the pianist I heard on way to the tea room, but fully appreciate that others may have thought it the other way around, i.e. they may have preferred the musak to the pianist, we all have different tastes.

    This Hotel should have provided an excellent tea experience, but it failed to impress in any way. Welcome at reception, quality of food and poor service contributed to a dismal occasion. Had we not had an Amazon voucher it would have been even worse!

    The Homage restaurant is a little jaded and could do with a refurb. Service was friendly but sporadic. Afternoon tea was just ok. Not impressed and won't be going back.
