    Absolutely fantastic, highly recommend the Celebration Afternoon Tea!

  • ((*** by from London

    We had afternoon tea. The sandwiches were basic, the scones were cold and quite hard, half of the pastries were average and the other half (brownies and fruit tart) did not taste nice. You will also be charged for refills - we didn't ask for refills anyway given the quality of the food. The only (and I mean only) good thing about this is that the staff were nice.

    We had a 'celebration afternoon tea' with champagne which was delicious. When we chose the tea from the menu, the waitress asked if it was a celebration and I said it was my birthday. Halfway through our tea, she came back with a special plate decorated in chocolate with 'Happy Birthday' with a piece of cake with a candle on it, a macaron and a chocolate, which was a lovely surprise. We have visited the hotel before for afternoon tea and have always found the staff to be very welcoming and friendly and this really adds to the occasion.

    I treated my sister and friend to afternoon tea on 1 October. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would come again.

    We particularly thought the service was good, probably a bit too good as we were constantly interrupted. However we were still happy with our visit and the food was lovely.

    I had a special offer so the price wasn't very expensive. I don't think I would return and pay full price.

    Understated but beautiful room. The service was superb as was the food.

    We were a group of 9 people who booked the London Restaurant festival [$] 3 course menu for dinner. It was all very disappointing. We were placed on a large tuscan table on a platform above the main restaurant. The ambience was immediately killed with dull lighting, no candles and a very large long table that felt like a business meeting. We are a talkative bunch and it actually killed the mood. It felt like we were in a disused meeting room. The food was good but the portions were small for casual non fussy Italian cooking. The service was sporadic, stuffy and formal. Overall, I would say that this place does not know what it wants to do . The food is too casual for stiff non-ambient dining and the service was akin to dining in the 80s. For the [$] per head we would have been better going to [...] in Notting Hill for great Italian food with some rustic atmosphere or paying £30 more for superb service, superior food and regal dining [...].

    We dined at 7.30 in the evening. I ordered the Aberdeen Beef Fillet as my main course. It was a plate of Heaven in my view. The beef was cooked to perfection!! The service was excellent but not overbearing and the staff were friendly and not at all stuffy
