The four of us were very happy with the four different dishes we ordered and I, as a vegan, was thoughtfully catered for. Also we had a small child with us and a high chair was provided

    Nice ambience, tables set a decent distance apart, clean fresh linen and stylish table settings. Was denied a window seat as it was reserved despite me booking over two weeks ahead, it being my birthday and window remaining empty for entire visit.

    Service was a little slow with ladies on a neighbouring table regularly ignored when asking for attention, they eventually had to go to desk for service.

    Tea selection good with coffee or chocolate as alternatives. Price includes two rounds of beverages but my first teapot was barely a cup and a half. Second teapot two and a half, so better.

    Nice selection of cakes but they are exceedingly small. The fruit tart had very runny custard and a lump of very thick jelly on top, not covering the fruit so was very difficult to eat politely. It looked like it had been assembled from carton custard and a packet gel mix, rather badly. Not what I would have expected for the setting.

    Scones a decent size and warm. One had fluff on, scone was quickly replaced by two others but no other overt apology made. Unfortunately, this meant the already meagre cream portion was even more difficult to stretch because whereas two pots of jam are provided you only get one tiny, half full pot of clotted cream which is not enough. Also the cream melts into the warm scones as there is no butter provided! At least two other tables has to ask for butter in addition so this is clearly an oversight.

    The hot chocolate was a good portion in a latte glass but was definitely drinking chocolate not chocolate per se. That said was tasty and my daughter enjoyed it.

    The value was reasonable as I had a two-for-one Yeo valley token but had I been charged full price I would have been very disappointed. I have had much more filling cream teas at a much better rate, admittedly not in central London.

    Be warned, they do add a service charge of around 12.5%.

    Excellent service, the best steak I have eaten out in a very longtime

    This was a very poor experience. It took forever for the meals to come, the mains were cold, it was impossible to get the attention of the waiting staff and they forgot our orders.

    We visited this restaurant to try the afternoon tea 40% off promotion and the sandwich and biscuits were so normal and also a bit old, I got dissapointed. There were a couple of mosquitoes around our table which did our staying a bit unconfortable and we had issues trying to be attended by the waiter.

    A friend and I had a quick working lunch. Lovely surroundings, great food - we chose from a la carte but a set menu is also available. Service very prompt and friendly. Excellent location - close to Euston and just a few minutes' walk from the British Museum. Thoroughly recommended.

    The afternoon was absolutely delicious. My friend and I had a really good time there. We tried it with a glass of prosecco that was really good and rounded the whole up. The price with the 25% discount was also very interesting.

    Warm welcome, nice table by the window, lovely food (rack of lamb/seared tuna), great service. Good value for money with tastecard and no problems using it.

    Sandwiches were dry and had no flavour.
    Cake was hard it had obviously been cut earlier in the day. Experience was disappointing.
