    So given the price one might say that no perfection or extraordinary food/service should be expected so I didnt. It was not 3 star experience bordering on 2 so, in a way, reflected the price.
    The sandwiches did not taste fresh or very tasty. Bread tasted cheap and dry. While the pastries tatsted very nice they were mostly soggy and falling apart. The service was polite but not really engaging. The room wasn't very classy and the dress code seemed to be far to relaxed for what I would expect in a place like this (sports gear was worn too by some). I always look for positives but in this case I struggled to find any that would make this place one I'd recommend so sadly I would not recommend it and I am sure that for a similar price there are places in London which offer better quality food, nicer ambiance and better service. Unless you expect the 'average' or value quantity over quality then you'd be OK.

    We had Afternoon tea and really enjoyed the experience. We arrived at 4pm and left at 6pm which was perfect. Quality of the food was very good!

    Had a lovely afternoon yesterday at the Park Room and Library in the Grosvenor for afternoon tea. Food and champagne were excellent as was the service from Carlos. We were offered more sandwiches if we wanted them but needed to leave room for the scones and wonderful pastries. Champagne was regularly topped up. Carlos even packaged our cake to take home with us! Very good value for money and will definitely return.

    Waiter was lovely, champagne plentiful. Sandwiches fresh but not very tasty. Would possibly call before attending next time to specify fillings as not all to our liking. They could have been re-done but would take time apparently? Scones small but nice. Atmosphere chilled and comfortable. We didn't feel rushed.

    It was a truly fabulous experience! The service was attentive but not intrusive, the food selection, excellent and plentiful and last but not least the champagne flowed freely!
    A very relaxed and enjoyable afternoon enjoyed by my friends and I, we have already booked to return.

    The food was delicious - a good variety of sandwiches and cakes and the scones were great with 6 varieties of jam to choose from. They were very generous with the champagne and the final surprise was the choice of a piece of cake to take away in a special box. The final icing on the cake were the staff who were delightful and very efficient.

    We had a lovely afternoon at The Park Room. The service was very friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed. The champagne was good quality - we drank alot more champagne than tea!
    The sandwiches were great as were the delicious cakes.
    I would go again.
