    Four friends met to celebrate a birthday. The staff couldn’t have done more to make us feel special. Delicious sandwiches and yummy sweet treats. The ambience further enhanced with live music from a harpist. The Homage is an amazing place that comes highly recommended.

    Setting was beautiful and all staff were friendly and helpful throughout. Afternoon was delicious and fresh. A great day out with the family! The sandwiches were beautiful and the scones were warm. So much food for the price also.

    Staff were really friendly and helpful, offering to take pictures, engaging in conversation and describing the food we were having. All the food we had was fresh and tasted amazing. The champagne used was delicious and there was a wide range of tea. Only downside was that we had to keep asking for our 'free flowing' champagne to be topped up.

    I booked the star afternoon tea at the Waldorf for my Wife's 50th birthday as we were spending the weekedn in London, taking in a couple of shows. We were greeted at the entrance of the tea room by a young lady who took our coats and led us to a very well laid table right next to the Harpist who played beautifully for our whole stay. Our waiter (Achmed I think) was marvellous, really attentive and genuinely wanted us to have a great experience. He poured us a glass of Prosecco and handed us a menu, ensuring we had no intolerances or allergies. His manner and the surrounding us made us feel very special and we relaxed immediately. The sanwiches were fantastic and Archmed offered us more once we had polished off the first helping. The sandwiches were so delicate with gorgeous fillings. Then came the cakes and pastries. These were beautifully presented and were completely yummy. We were offered a range of teas. My Wife chose mint and I went with the traditional english orange tip blend. My tea was possibly the nicest cup of tea I've tasted! I have to say, the china and silverware really topped off the experience. Then, to ur surprise, Achmed approached us at the same time as the harpist struck up with 'Happy Brithday' which the whole tea room joined in with. Achmed, presenting my wife with a lovely slice of cake to wish her happy birthday. What a marvellous experience. We will be recommending the star afternoon tea to all our friends and most definately wil return. Thank you to all the staff and management for making our experience one to remember.
