Food was amazing and so was the service. The savoury half of the afternoon tea, in particular, was absolutely stunning. Would have liked some more black tea options - honestly, I can't think of any other complaints!

I came here for the Valentines afternoon tea offer on the 14th of Feb. Unfortunately it was really quite disappointing. Once we were seated, we barely received any service bar from the physically required task of taking our order and bringing it to the table. It was not particularly busy, and the staff seemed to use that as a sufficient reason to simply not be there. No one came to ask if everything was ok, to refill water or do anything above the bare minimum. Our tea was refilled once, the music system kept stopping (people seemed to forget to turn it on) and the whole thing felt like an afterthought. It made it a bit galling to then be charged a 12.5% service charge which was conveniently automatically added to the bill. The food was fine, but fairly rudimentary. The flavours of the sweet options weren't properly balanced (one featuring basil tasted of nothing else - basically savoury - and the scones came with an ill-thought out chocolate covered clotted cream which claimed to feature jam, but on 2 of ours the jam appeared to have been forgotten. When I asked for service to be taken off the bill as we hadn't really been 'served', the waitress didn't deem it important enough to query why. A great idea but very poorly executed, and combined with a complete lack of atmosphere (within the bakery itself and the dining area) and disinterest from all staff members, failed to deliver an actual experience. Won't be coming back unfortunately!

Every detail was beautifully thought through. The food was stunning and the presentation was gorgeous. The atmosphere in the garden room was romantic and whimsically. A magical afternoon!

We were disappointed by the afternoon tea. The price was comparable to an afternoon tea at a top London hotel but, in our view, it suffered from style over substance. We were particularly unimpressed by the sweet items - they were at best uninteresting and at worst unpleasant. The service was very friendly but we would recommend to others that they go elsewhere for afternoon tea.

Came for the afternoon tea (Which was a festive theme) as it was highly recommended, however there was not enough food, we left still hungry. There were not enough savoury pieces and too many sweet, which all had the same structure. Would have been nice to mix up the variety of styles with pies, tarts, sandwiches etc. As we looked around, it was clear other felt the same as everyone had left desserts behind.

The bad and incompetent service overshadowed the food entirely. Not comparable at all to service provided at the many hotels offering afternoon tea.
