    The view was spectacular but the afternoon tea was very ordinary. Have had better at half the price.

    I booked the "deal" with bookatable for afternoon tea which stated it would be £32 a head, this sounded reasonable for a small selection of sandwiches and cakes for 2 persons in the Shard. After finishing our tea I was presented with a bill of £144. Apart from 2 glasses of house champagne which I knew would be pricey I wasn't aware there would have been any further extras. It transpired that there were no "deals" as such and the afternoon tea was full price at £56 per head with £16 service charge.
    I don't mind paying out but in this case an extra £50 was sprung on me. I would certainly recommend the place but would not recommend taking one of bookatables "deals" as you could be bitten.

    Stunning views to celebrate wedding anniversary. Food was really good and they offered to top up on anything if we asked. As i said it was a anniversary celebration they even brought out some extra little treats which was a pleasant surprise.
