Experience the truly British tradition of afternoon tea at one of London's most famous hotels, The Waldorf Hilton. Dine within historic and elegant surroundings, complete with original chandeliers and ionic pillars inspired by the grand cafés of Europe.
Unwind with a glass of champagne and choose from a selection of 13 fine loose leaf teas, including the signature 'Waldorf Tribute' blend that was created by Twinings exclusively for, and only found at, The Waldorf Hilton.
Savour a selection of finely cut sandwiches, warm freshly baked scones and delicate pastries that change seasonally and are beautifully served on a 3-tiered stand made of Royal Crown Derby fine bone china. Live entertainment is provided by the resident pianist and harpist.
Boasting a showbiz clientele, Afternoon Tea at The Waldorf London is the epitome of chic. Covent Garden Tube Station is 6 minutes’ walk away.

Customer reviews for Afternoon Tea at The Waldorf Hilton
(**** 12 September 2019 by Ian from London
Felt I was not part of the restaurant, service was slow, sandwiches were limited and very small, was not offered glass of cava, asked for second pots of tea and did not receive correct tea. My wife and I felt we were an inconvenience to the waiting staff. Finally music started as we were leaving. This afternoon was a special occasion as we live in Tenerife, and come back to the UK for holidays. No comment in final section re would not recommend this restaurant for anything.

Arrived early for our 2pm booking but was able to be seated straight away and was offered the choice of two tables. A good selection of sandwiches and scones and cakes. Good value with a glass of champagne. Our waiter Ahmed was very attentive. Although the outside of the hotel is covered in scaffolding once inside there is a calm ambiance.

Good value tea with generous helpings of everything. The ambience is slightly lacking as the center feature is not in use and looks a little stark. Very helpful receptionist although we had to wait sometime for our food to arrive after being seated.

Beautifully ornate room
Seconds offered of canapés and sandwiches
Lots of desserts
I was really disappointed because the website said live music Thursday to Sunday. When we enquires why there was no music we were told that this was Friday to Sunday. The ultimate choice in where to treat my aunt and uncle for afternoon tea was down to the music. We were all letdown and disappointed from the lack of it and false advertisement

We had a lovely time, food was lovely and the extra touch of the happy birthday on the slate plate with a lovely piece of chocolate cake as perfect.
We were not rushed and enjoyed the atmosphere.,

The restaurant building is now under renovation. All views are blocked. I can’t tell how it’s original look like.
For food and drink, it is not well suitable for dairy allergies people. The afternoon tea in normal set is good to go. After requesting for allergy menu, it provided something not nice in colour and spicy sandwiches which made me drink more tea, and I finished my tea quite early and people were busy and hardly offer filling my tea.
I really don’t enjoy the food in here. I don’t want to come back again.

The afternoon tea was beautiful. I personally enjoyed the sandwiches and would be more than happy to eat it all again! The staff rate amazing and made the afternoon special for my mum as we were celebrating her birthday
