    Absolutely beautiful Midsummer Nights Dream afternoon tea! The best afternoon tea I have had in London.

    The food was delicious and the portions were huge.

    The setting was lovely and the staff could not have been more attentive- particular thanks go to the Irish waiter.

    Cannot recommend highly enough.

    Despite pushing our reservation back a half hour we arrived a further 15 min late. They seated us, thankfully, but was told we had only an hour to eat before they needed that table to be free. Whilst the staff was pleasant enough, there were certainly bitchy undertones and glares from the management. We ate as quickly as possible and enjoyed the food. The children's ice cream was horribly effected by freezer burn, but we didn't complain as we were on eggshells as it was! However,our server spent an awfully long amount of time chatting away with his fellow staff members and we were not asked if our meal was suitable not thanked when we left completely on time. Moral of the story? Don't dare to be late to your reservation!! Great food but very average staff attitude.

    Location, atmosphere, service were all terrific. The soup and the vegetables were very good. So was the desert. The lamb was terrible. It was tough and full of gristle, and I could only eat a little of it.

    Loved it! I'll admit if you're not very good at eating unusual foods then it's a bit weird but overall it was really nice. Almost impossible to eat it all somehow it just filled me up but they let us out the scones in a box to take away! Would definitely do it again, service was good. However did ask to remove the 12.5% service charge as that was a bit much, still left a tip though.
