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.

    Went to the themed ABBA high tea, the servers where amazing and met our eveyneed. The vegetarian selection was also very good and enjoyed it very much. And one of the guest was disabled and it was all on one level

    However the themed tea was in the reception area and there was construction outside meaning it was very noisy when the construction workers where working and we could smell their cigarette when they where on their break. Similarly being by the front reception there was sometimes a cold breeze when the front door was open

    I booked this afternoon tea as a treat for my grand-daughter as she loves Mamma Mia. It was a bit disappointing. The Mamma Mia bit consisted of a display, a TV screen showing clips from the stage production and (I think) the soundtrack from the original film. It was very quiet and we could hardly hear it, especially over the piano being played further up.
    We were the only people in that section and although the waitress visited occasionally, she never seemed to be around when we needed anything. There were no spoons for the cream, jam or mousses. I ordered coffee which came in a very thick cup with an impossible handle which was such a contrast from the rest of the pretty, dainty china.
    The food took a while to come, which wasn't a problem, and was OK. Not the best afternoon tea I've ever had, but OK.

    I treated a friend of mine for her first Afternoon tea in London and it did not disappoint. The selection of sweet and savoury dishes were delicious and fresh as you would expect from a 5 star hotel.
    The service was immaculate and friendly.
    It turned a rainy afternoon into a great one ??. A fantastic experience

    Ladies and gents' bathrooms were excellent facilities, and the harpist an enjoyable addition to create an elegant dining experience. The waiting staff were very helpful, they even put my bunch of flowers in water for the duration of the afternoon tea, and indeed all the hotel staff we encountered were pleasant and charming. Neither of us has stayed in the hotel, but the experience put us in mind of staying in the hotel on a future occasion.

    Half of the tables were dirty or not set up. We did not get any attention from the staff. Not exactly what we expected from a afternoon tea in such a hotel.

    Disappointing experience, service was poor, food was average, especially as it had been booked for a celebration.

    I booked for me and a friend to come as a birthday gift though bookatable.
    It was a shambles first of all the food arrived looking old and rather bland with the sandwich lifting away from the filings and the bread rather stale, I had pre emailed the dietary requirements which were one vegetarian option and we were met with 4 sandwiches all the same pepper and homous? Not very imaginative, the least you would expect would be maybe a egg and cress too?!
    I’d booked the free flowing afternoon tea at extra expense and this was very poor, I’ve been to many bottomless brunches across London and your glass is never left empty whereas yesterday over the 2 hours my glass was empty the majority of the time even for over 20 minutes at one occasion. Which we found very stingy.
    There was a % service fee added to the bill which given the choice I wouldn’t have paid as the service was slow and inattentive.

    Overall very disappointing afternoon tea which cost more than £110 and we both left the The Waldorf Hilton thirsty and hungry. Definitely won’t be returning.

    It was disappointing, the restaurant was chaotic, so I could hear people around chasing their waiters to order/follow up food. We had to chase to get a menu and order. The afternoon tea was very dry, the cakes, bread for sandwiches and scones all tasted like they had been left out all afternoon. The only saving grace was the unlimited champagne and the waitress we ended up having was very friendly and attentive, although the restaurant had started to clear by this point.

    The service was poor. We were left sitting for more than 30mins with no food/drink or even an order being taken. In the end I had to approach the desk and ask for some service.

    We kept having to ask for our glass to be refilled, it was clear that despite being bottomless and time limited, they wanted to restrict your intake. My friend also ordered a cocktail which didn’t arrive but was on the final bill.

    Towards the end, the staff switched off the lights in the room as a signal that we should leave. It would have been far more polite to approach us and just explain that the service was coming to an end.

    Our actual waiter was a nice chap.

    The food was ok but nothing special.
