Over all the experience was remarkable. We had the afternoon tea and the service was impeccable. The venue is very central for the city and even though it was Friday there was no pressure to complete the meal. I would recommend.

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.

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.

    Poor quality afternoon tea, sandwiches worst afternoon tea sandwiches I'd ever tasted, the scones were nice & cakes ok but overall poor compared to the wealth of other amazing places nearby.

    We had afternoon tea. This deal was advertised at 38.50 but we ended up paying 49.00 due to service charges and weekend supplement. Not happy with hidden costs. Cakes were stodgy and heavy. Sandwiches filling ok...the bread was dry.

    Not good for the cost. Ambience poor on this day due to other function and the overall movement of chairs glasses tables chairs.

    Harpist left and packed up well before our afternoon tea session was finished and recorded music played instead. Great personal service from our waitress and attention to detail. However, we were guests in the last afternoon tea session of the day and the staff were busy working all around us and the rest of the remaining customers to set up the unused tables for the evening dining sessions. This spoiled the relaxing atmosphere and made us feel rushed.

    had a 4pm booking. had been before for tea but last time there was a function in the homage tea room. as we entered the tea room we were greeted by a lady playing the harp. we chose the tea we wanted and tea and finger sandwiches arrived.there were five finger sandwiches each. we were offered more sandwiches which we accepted another six finger sandwiches arrived three each. then a 3 tiered silver stand arrived, there were two scones each and seven selections of small cakes. we had two pots of tea each and took the cakes away in a box that we couldn't eat. two gripes would be that the harpist left at 4.30pm and then they were preparing the tables for dinner.

    it was very nice. the surroundings were beautiful and the waiters and waitresses very nice. we were worried they may seem pompous but were very friendly and helpful. although the sandwiches and cakes were nice, i would not have paid visitedif i had to pay the full price for it
