    The experience was good. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Because it was my friends 60th birthday I expected her name on a little cake for example. I think it should have been more personalised. I did mention her name and birthday on the phone. I also asked for something special to mark her birthday. But it was a bit disappointing. But for a normal afternoon tea it was very nice.

    Excellent afternoon tea, great service.

    We had afternoon tea at the Hilton, islington. Sanndwiches were lovely and fresh and plenty of them: cucumber, ham, egg mini rolls, smoked salmon bagels. Scones cream and jam : 1 each. Mini trifles, mini macarons, mini cream sponges and some sort of plain loaf cake~ all 1 each. Tea was a bit strange as we all received a plain pot of hot water and then 1 tea bag of our choice. We could ask for more water and tea bags if we wanted.
    One downside was that on a very hot day we couldn't sit outside, even though there were tables and chairs out there, and we couldn't sit near a window because there were 5 of us not 4 despite a virtually empty restaurant!
    Quite expensive for a basic but fresh and tasty tea.

    My dining experience was very good. I loved the layout of the table. The waiter was very polite and friendly. They cared about my allergies and informed me about the food. The slow cooked lamb shank tasted amazing and the desert was beautifully presented and also tasted amazing. The waiter made sure we were happy with our food and our experience.

    Pls see below part of email sent, following them kindly sending me a discount voucher

    Thank you so much for the attached and also for a very pleasant afternoon tea. 

    Even better than the delicacies served was the exceptional service that we received, from the moment we arrived at the venue. 

    The kindness and attention offered by ALL your members of staff was faultless and their efficiency and sheer friendliness towards making our 83 year old mum feel so special on her birthday, was exemplary. 

    I have no hesitation in recommending The Hilton Islington for their Champagne Afternoon Tea and wish to say a huge "Thank You" to everyone.!

    Excelllent service !. It was a hot day and we asked to sit outside but were told they don't serve outside. Shortly after, we were told that the manager had said since it was a quiet day they could allow us outside as long as we sat near the doors to make serving easier. Staff were all polite, helpful, friendly and attentive but not intrusive.Afternoon tea was excellent. Fresh sandwiches and cakes and several teas and fruit infusions available. A lovely afternoon, I highly recommend.
