    The staff were so warm, welcoming and lovely. We felt so valued. All the food was spectacular with the exception of the doughnut, both the vegan and normal version was a bit bland. Only other criticism was that one of the champagne glasses wasn’t full up as much as the others, didn’t want to cause a fuss so didn’t mention it at the time. Other then that, everything was incredible

    Good service, cocktail was really really refreshing, the food was delicious. We were very full and satisfied. The tea could be a lot stronger

    It was a little awkward sitting by a very tiny table, I would have preferred a proper table and a normal chair, but the food was great, my regards to the chef, and the tea was superb.

    I was a little concerned about arriving late. I just flew in from the states and needed to freshen up before my tea time. Once I arrived, I was able to relax. The experience was awesome. The staff was very accommodating. Five Stars. Bravo. Thank you.

    Fabulous, excellent table with a stunning view over Hyde park. The restaurant was decorated beautiful, service and staff all very helpful and took the time out to have a chat with us. Beautiful sandwiches and hand crafted cakes. We’ve had afternoon tea a lot in London and this has to be one of the best places to go to. Staff and service was excellent!!

    The restaurant is very modern, light and airy, we sat by the window and could people watch whilst enjoying our lovely afternoon tea. It was a very hot day and the staff were very aware of this and made sure that we were comfortable. The Summer Afternoon tea was delightful and the scones were exceptional. The staff make your afternoon very special.
