We had the Punk afternoon tea. We enjoyed a window table so we could look out and see Chinatown and the Christmas lights. The scones were deliciously light and crumbly. All the cakes were amazing, both in design and taste but favourite was the Battenberg. Service was attentive.

Step into a world of chic at W Hotel Leicester Square. This stunning development draws Hollywood events, a jet setting crowd, and serves a gloriously innovative afternoon tea in its contemporary library lounge.

Enjoy a twist on British tradition with the signature afternoon tea offering, the Anarch’Tea. Each dish represents an iconic song from some of London’s most disruptive decades and combines classic British flavours, with bold punk-inspired designs to create London’s most rebellious afternoon tea. Tuck into a Sex Pistols-inspired Battenberg complete with a marzipan icing crown, or a nod to The Stranglers - a pair of red lips made from a strawberry mousse, sealed with a silver zip.

In the evening, the library area transforms into a vibrant setting with intimate lighting and features a stunning bar where you can mingle over a cocktail accompanied by tunes from a resident DJ.

Boasting elegant bar and lounge areas, W Hotel is 2 minutes’ walk from Leicester Square Tube Station. Afternoon tea is served daily at the W Lounge from 2:00pm until 5:00pm.

    The food was really good and the staff very welcoming. I was disappointed there wasn't prosecco available and there wasn't a glass of fizz within the price. However I thought it was lovely to offer a special nail bar for Mother's Day. Overall a lovely few hours.

    The tiny sandwiches we received were firm and dry - like they had been sitting under an air conditioning unit for a few days. The cakes were very average also. I had to go to the bar to ask for the bill and every time we did ask for something - it took a long time. Finally, the cocktail was one of the poorest I've tasted in my whole life - and I have had my fair share of cocktails. Very poor value for money.

    i hope not all w hotels have the service like here...will not recommend to anyone to go for afternoon tea there ....the team was very unprofessional
    ignored on arrival, no explanation, they forgot to give us menu, fortgot to take order for the tea, teaspoon missing, wrong sandwich order, rude at payment...

    i think on xmas all the good hotel staff got off and everybody who was working on xmas was just so pissed off?!
    very dissapointed of w hotel.....

    the cakes looked stylish....that was our only happiness we could find in there..

    It was a very noisy venue. Which wasn't a good mix for two people to converse. How ever the food was quite nice. The service was slow due to the nature of the venue, I guess.
    Wasn't abke to check bill in detail as it was dim lighting. Was unhappy to see I wasn't charged the set £37 per person. I was charged £40 each v

    Not great for afternoon tea. Sandwiches were stale and the fillings bland. Cakes stodgy and sickly. Scones were nice but no real finesse. All served on a cake tier made of old vinyl records, in line with the punk theme - nice idea but the vinyls were old 50/60's tunes and the cake tier really flimsy and wobbly. Overpriced at £30 per person plus 12.5% service. Staff friendly, W bar is lovely but actual content a real let down. Save up and go to Sketch.

    Desserts were a little too sweet and quite similar with their mouse-textured fillings, also only one small dry scone. For £30 it's not bad value though overall and the service is generally good. There aren't proper tables and chairs though so there's limited space!
