    It was my first time having afternoon tea in London and it was a lovely experience! The sitting room is so cosy and beautifully decorated and I felt so lucky to be the only guest there. The person who served me was very attentive and friendly and I really appreciated him explaining the different food items.

    We enjoyed our afternoon tea at The Capital. We especially enjoyed the tea room, a quiet beautiful setting for conversation and a lovely tea service. The food was well prepared and beautifully presented.

    Had a wonderful afternoon tea with cocktails. A beautiful boutique hotel in such a quiet spot in London you wouldn't think you were in the hubbub of the City. The food was so tasty and we had double helpings!! The lady who looked after us couldn't have done more. It was a wonderful afternoon tea and will definitely go back
