    It was great- tea came a bit late but the service was good. Sandwiches, cakes and scones were fantastic, only low point was the pastries.

    Tables are a bit too close to each other and I would prefer a bigger room. But all in all, it was a good experience.

    Before choosing to book afternoon tea at the Roseberry, my friend and myself researched the venue online. We look at a handful of reviews and photographs of the venue, room and the food of course!

    Once we arrived at the hotel, we were surprised at how old the interior of the main reception looked. No-one greeted us and we had to find our own way to the Roseberry Room. Upon finding the room, we were promptly sat at a table and was explained to how the menu worked. How we could have as many sandwiches and scones as we liked and endless pots of tea.

    However, during our 2 hours that we were there, we were probably served by over 8 different members of staff. Each and every member of staff was particularly helpful and friendly, but you really had to catch their attention. We were left for long periods in between where we would have ordered more tea.

    It actually got to the point where I had to put my hand up (like in school) to get someones' attention. It was as if we had been forgotten about.

    Saying that, the food was nice and the tea was gorgeous (even if they never did bring up the milk that I requested to be on the side!!)

    Very pricey for what you get, we opted for the normal afternoon tea without cocktails and with service charge it was £60 pp. I've had afternoon tea at the Ritz for less than this and if I had to choose, I would most certainly choose the Ritz afternoon tea over this one.

    The room also didn't have views of Hyde Park, which it advertises, very disappointing. I could see Knightsbridge tube station and that was all.

    The staff were friendly , helpful and courteous . They were attentative without being obtrusive . My husband does not eat certain meats , poultry or fish so I contacted hotel by email when I booked to mention this to them . They catered for his preferences in doing some different sandwich fillings for him which he thoroughly enjoyed . My food was also delicious and we were offered more if we wanted . The sandwiches were very fresh and tasty as were the scones , cakes and pastries . Would highly recommend this afternoon tea as we were not rushed and staff were very informative on the food brought to us and on the different tea varieties which you could try various teas during your visit . Lovely ambience and a very nice treat for a special occasion .

    This is nicely located near Harrods. The hotel is nice however the ambience of the restaurant is very much lacking. The cutlery and China were beautiful.
    As for the food I am a lacto ovo vegetarian. They did cater for my dietary requirements. I was very disappointed that they normally use beef gelatin in their pastry. The food was average. Fair selection and nice variety. The tea selection was excellent. I would say the best dish was the rose petals jam. With so many places offering higher quality afternoon tea and will NOT be recommending here are returning.

    We had an amazing moment at the Rosebery Lounge for the afternoon tea. The staff was great especially Ludovic (if I remember well) who really took care of us and offered us some alternatives for the food (like gluten free) and did not hesitate to refill our food or teas.

    Had an amazing afternoon tea today, with Lodovic doing some of our serving, we had such a fab time, thank you to everyone working there. It's not the cheapest afternoon tea around but the tea and the food is bottom less, and the service was impeccable.

  • ((((( 27 June 2016 by Karen Waine from London Borough of Bromley

    The venue was in an excellent position just opposite Knightsbridge Underground. The staff welcomed us and found us a table in the window. The atmosphere was very relaxed and we sat eating our delicious sandwiches and scrumptious pastries for 3 hours. We had a lovely cocktail to start and the teas were very good. The service was excellent. All in all, a lovely afternoon.

  • ((((( 16 June 2016 by Sarah Haymes from London

    The afternoon tea here was delicious. We had one Chamagne afternoon tea and one Traditional afternoon tea but there were other options too which you don't usually get. A Cocktail afternoon tea and a Sake afternoon tea.
    The sandwiches, scones and cakes were amazing and the service was brilliant. Having been to many afternoon teas in London sometimes the service let's it down. Not here the staff were very attentive and friendly. I would recommend this afternoon tea to everyone.
