    Although things were obviously very different because of the Covid situation the afternoon tea was lovely. Superb food and very good portions for the two of us. The staff were really nice and very apologetic that we couldn't dine in the art deco tea room because of the current restrictions, and were also really apologetic that they had to serve us with (very posh) tea bags instead of leaf tea - again because of the current restrictions. It really didn't make that much difference to us, and we enjoyed it all. It was a bonus to be offered second helpings, although we were so full we couldn't manage them! We will go back again as the standard of food and service was very high. We have only dropped one star because the setting wasn't as luxurious as we were hoping, but that does not reflect on the actual afternoon tea itself

    Very friendly service from both members of staff. We thought the food was lovely and staff very generous with the Veuve Cliquot. I would recommend this for a relaxing afternoon with friends. The hotel is very convenient for visits to the theatres on The Strand.

    We came for the afternoon tea with bottomless champagne, and it was an incredible experience. The offer was amazing value, and the service was great. All of the food was lovely, great options for sandwiches and cakes. We would go back!

    The service was great — you get a lot of food for the price! There were 3 of us, and we each got a ‘tea tower’ of sandwiches, scones, and fancy desserts...too much food for one, unless you really come hungry! Good selection of teas as well.

    Afternoon tea for a birthday with the girls. Even though they were very busy we did not miss out on tea, cakes or prosecco. Everything was fresh and tasty and the service staff friendly, helpful and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble, from top ups to photos. This is the second time I’ve been there and on both occasions we weren’t rushed out. Thank you for your lovely food and service, I would definitely recommend to others!

    Afternoon tea was wonderful. As it was my birthday we wanted it to be a very special occasion. We were extremely well looked after by Mary. She and her colleague were very attentive and polite.
