On board a glamorous 108-metre yacht permanently moored in Royal Victoria Dock, Afternoon Tea at Sunborn Yacht Hotel London is a unique London experience. Afternoon tea is served in the Lands End restaurant which overlooks 02 and Canary Wharf.

Afternoon tea under the sea, is a unique take on the classic formula, with the opportunity to choose from traditional finger sandwiches or bespoke seafood sandwiches, as well as themed cakes. Diners can choose from a handpicked range of organic teas, or add a glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne to complement the meal perfectly.

The Sundown Bar at the Sunborn Yacht Hotel Docklands offers a range of classic and bespoke cocktails to be enjoyed after afternoon tea.

Offering perfect river views and with a terrace that is bathed in sunshine during the summer, the Sunborn Yacht Hotel London is 5 minutes' walk from Custom House station and The Emirates Cable Car.

    Really poor experience in booking and communicating with venue as this was a special treat booked for my parents. Venue were unhelpful and even suggested to cancel booking as they could not take payment from me. Very disappointed.

    Beautiful venue. Service a little slow but an enjoyable experience nonetheless

    I went there to have afternoon tea and celebrate with a few friends, I had a wonderful experience. The only downfall was we had to keep asking for more sandwiches as they were not forthcoming with them.

    I must say I was very disappointed with the experience and the only saving grace was the fact that the company (ie my friends) and the view were amazing. We waited 45 minutes between ordering and finally receiving our afternoon tea. When we asked after 35 minutes where it was, we were informed it was coming just now - it finally arrived 10 minutes later. The sandwiches were dry and crusty, I think the reason behind this was the fact that the scones were not cooked (they came out fresh and warm)but the made the sandwiches well before they were ready and left them uncovered). Unfortunately I am not able to eat fish or egg and I received cucumber sandwiches with what seemed like half a cucumber in each sandwich (my friends had significantly less in theirs) and ham sandwiches but as said they had clearly been left on the side for some time and were very dry - however we were too hungry by that time and didn't particularly want to wait another 45 minutes for sandwiches to arrive. The cupcakes looked like they had been bought from a supermarket with a little bit of buttercream added as an after thought. However on the positive side 3 of each cake/pastry were provided which is relatively unusual. The service was average and I think training was definitely needed. The card machine didn't work so we had to go reception to pay and when we went downstairs we had to request that we have copies of our card receipts. One of the staff told my friend to take any coat (which did not impress her at all especially as she works in the hospitality sector). The toilets were also looking a little tired with one toilet not flushing and 1 sink not working. Nice view, great company - would I go back - probably not...

    Arrived to a lovely well looked after yacht on the River Thames, the location is perfect to get to from Emirates Airline / Tube station. Afternoon tea was amazing and very filling, service was prompt and even reserved us a table with a view

    Great afternoon, delicious food!

    Had the traditional tea. Very basic cake selection. Have an allergy, the chef thought the best was around this was to give us 6 of the same cake. (Simple cream horn, way to much cream, didn't eat them all).
    Have had lots of afternoon teas at various locations. For the price, this is certainly not one of the best, bit of a disappointment considering the setting.
