Service was very good with a nicertain variety of sandwiches, savouries, scones and pastries. Not a tea drinker so had coffee instead. Glass of champagne was a real treat.

Bringing sumptuous international dining to the luxurious setting of the Kingsway Hall Hotel, Harlequin Restaurant treats diners to the finest seasonal cuisine, in a relaxed and bright setting.

Frequently changing to include the freshest ingredients, the Harlequin Restaurant menu is packed with expertly prepared British dishes, like a delicate pan-fried Brixham sea bass with piperade, green beans, sautéed potatoes and basil essence. A well crafted wine list boasts bottles from around Europe, served by efficient and friendly waiting staff.

Elegant afternoon tea is also served at the Harlequin Restaurant in Holborn, incorporating dainty finger sandwiches, warm homemade scones and a mouth-watering array of delicate cakes and pastries. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available when requested in advance, while champagne can be added for an extra sense of occasion.

Blending traditional style with contemporary tweaks,the Harlequin Restaurant London is warmly lit, with foliage scattered throughout, and glass panelling up the central staircase. It sits just 2 minutes’ walk from Holborn Tube Station.

    Excellent service the waitress was very polite. The restaurant had a nice calm atmosphere and the tables were well spaced between each other. The afternoon tea was lovely and the cakes and scones were constantly being topped up. This is the third time I have visited for afternoon tea and would highly recommend.

    I booked a last-minute (30 minutes on beforehand!) 20% off Wimbledon traditional afternoon tea for 1 at this restaurant, which is located on the ground floor of the Kingsway Hall Hotel. It was a Monday afternoon and very quiet. There was a good selection of teas, I chose Organic Chinese Sencha. The savoury part consisted of traditional sandwiches as well as a chicken wrap, a sausage roll and a smoked salmon pinwheel. Furthermore there were a regular and a fruit scone and quite a large selection of pastries. Everything was delicious, although the green tea & white chocolate delice and chocolate & hazelnut gateaux were a bit too sweet for my taste. Service was friendly and efficient. Overall very good value for money, and the 20% off a real bonus!

    Staff very polite but def not worth the money.
    Afternoon tea was very dissapointing.
    Have taken afternoon tea in various hotels and they all topped up sandwiches at least once.
    Very very expensive for the food you received.

    Afternoon tea was excellent, I have an allergy so they adapted the tea to me. All dishes were perfect and the special blend tea was gorgeous.

    The service wasn't good, couldn't understand two of the staff at all, am used to all sorts of accents on English, but was totally at a loss...and no plates for the afternoon tea when it arrived, the sandwiches weren't fresh, the bread was going hard, the cucumber mushy, the scones very small, only one small bowl of jam and cream for 4 people and the selection of cakes wasn't up to standard for the price...the champagne was fine and the tea itself Ok but altogether very disappointing indeed, especially as this was a treat for visitors from abroad for whom it was not a good experience to offer them, the surroundings were ok with plants but the tables lacked any colour, the bowl of flowers/plant(?) was lacklustre....I often take Afternoon Tea and was NOT impressed...

    This was my second visit for afternoon tea as the first was so enjoyable. A lovely tea and selection of teas with very friendly (but not in your face) service. A great way to spend the afternoon chatting with friends.
