It was a lovely reunion with two old friends, both travelling into central London. This was perfect in terms of distance, accessibility but also ambience, food, staff and facilities. We didn't want to leave!

Great service and attention to detail. The whole group enjoyed the food and experience and it was brilliant to have a gluten free alternative ready.

My husband, sister-in-law, two children (12 & 11) took my mother-in-law for an 80th birthday surprise 'afternoon tea' to the Potting Shed. One of the reasons for choosing here was that they offered both a vegan and child option. Good location, with just a short walk from either Marylebone or Baker Street stations. All of the staff were extremely professional, yet very friendly and welcoming. Our 'afternoon tea' was delicious and very filling (we actually had it at lunch time). There was also a varied list of specialty teas to choose from. Finally, at the end of our meal, our waitress brought out to my mother-in-law a plate which had been inscribed with chocolate "Happy 80th Birthday!" and filled with delicious fresh fruit and a mango sorbet - a lovely surprise for her and indeed all of us.
