    Great but could not understand staff. A printed menu would help

    Although the room was beautiful and the food amazing through the experience we felt very rushed. Without even asking they would top up your tea for you and at times one server would top you up, you would to 2 sips of tea and then another server would just top you up. We were not offered any refills and as soon as the plates were cleared we weren't asked if there was anything else we would like we were just presented with the bill.
    I expect better from an establishment like this.

    There is a delightful quirkiness about Sketch, from the swathes of pink, to the egg pod toilets and humorous sketches which line the walls. We had The Night Before Christmas Tea. This was plentiful, full of variety and very tasty, with a superb selection of teas. The service throughout was excellent. Although expensive it was a real treat.

    Went here for afternoon tea with friends and it was a great experience! The place is one of a kind, excellent service and more food than we could handle. 100% worth the cost... these guys did a great job. Highly recommended!

    The whole experience is just sensational . The decor and all the sketches in the gallery work so well together . The staff are very warm and friendly but also very professional . The food was simply incredible .

    We had afternoon tea. The place is cool and the food and service was brilliant. A perfect afternoon. Thank you.

    We made the most of our experience at Sketch, but overall, for the cost, it was disappointing. There was lots of staff, but almost too many as they were tripping over themselves and because of where we were sitting, we constantly had staff rushing past us. Despite all the staff, service was slow and it was nearly 30 minutes before we even got a pot of tea and even longer for cakes etc to arrive. Some of the food was delicious, but some was really not to our taste. Some of the cakes were more like desserts. The battenburg cake was particularly disappointing. The final straw was realising later that I had been charged a 20% service charge - be warned.

    Fantastic atmosphere, funny art on the walls and perfectly made sandwiches, tea, pastries and scones. Definitely returning when I'm back in London
