The afternoon tea was excellent. Savouries were a really nice change from just sandwiches. The scones were a bit too large but still tasty
The cakes and little dessert were amazing. We had a love potion cocktail which was lovely. Nice view of the river. Service very good.

A theatre menu is served prior to all performances at The Globe, whilst the set Sunday menu includes a range of traditional roasts alongside modern British options. Afternoon tea is served daily from 12-3.

    This one one of the nicest afternoon teas that we've had in London! The food was perfect: just the right amount and a splendid selection of tasty items all beautifully presented. The service was attentive and thorough and we were able to sit slowly chatting over our tea without any sense of being hurried. The room is a lovely bright and airy space with a splendid view across London. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone.

    Loved it. Table with view, beautiful table setting and China, impeccable service from lovely Canadian, nothing was too much trouble, took our photos, explanation of art on walls, super detail of afternoon tea which was delicious. They knew it was my mum's 85th. She was given champagne and delightful chocolates with chocolate writing on plate personalised. Food and tea amazing and given box to take home leftover! Pure delight.

    One of my favourite restaraunts in London - wonderful food, stunning location and outstanding service. We took our two young children once too, who were made to feel extremely welcome and even given a tour of the kitchen.

    The restaurant was lovely, with a great view of the river and the streets below.

    Our afternoon tea was a Midsummer Night's Dream theme, the plates and tea cups were specially designed for it which made it even more special. There was a tailor made cocktail to go with the tea as well.

    The staff were very polite and helpful and the processo was constantly topped up. The food was also very tasty and very well presented.

    We had a great time.

    The restaurant has lovely views of the Thames and nice ambience. The service is good but its a shame that some of the sandwiches were dry and the scones were hard obviously not freshly made and we were given a very small portion of cream and jam to go with them. One of us had the gentlemens tea which was tasty but again a bit dry.
